Tuesday's Tip

Today's Tip: oregano oil.

Have you ever tried oregano oil? No, not to cook with, but I suppose you could.

Oregano oil is great at fighting infections as it kills many kinds of bacteria, fungi, and parasites. I use it on my teeth.

I have really soft teeth that are prone to infection. A friend told me about oregano oil and I haven't had an infection since. I put a drop or two on a tooth when I feel a little tinge that might mean trouble. When I can't stand it anymore, I swish water in my mouth for a second and then swallow. (Try it once and you'll understand "can't take it anymore." This stuff is stout.) I do that in the morning and evening for a few days.

It is also good for the control of candida, possibly athlete's foot, and other infections.

Let me say that oregano oil is very potent stuff. If you use it for any of these applications, you should only use it for 2 -3 weeks and then stop.

Let me also say that I am not an expert, much less a doctor. Or even a dentist. I share this information only from my personal experiences.

Here are a few articles that tell you more about oregano oil and its possible uses:

As with any home remedy, I hope you do further research on your own if you want to use oregano oil.
