Can I put oil of oregano in the cool humidfier in my 1 yo room?

Can I put oil of oregano in the cool humidfier in my 1 yo room?

Why ever?: You may find such scents entertaining to your adult senses but they are air pollution to a young kid. Fragrances/smoke/dust/all act as airway irritants and can aggravate or trigger a cough in the young. This is something I avoid until school age when their airways are more tolerant. ...Read more

No info: There is no info on the effect of oregano oil on probiotics but intuitively one would think not. If you are concerned about potential effect then it would make sense to temporally separate the two products by taking each well away from the other. ...Read more

I drank oil of oregano (3 drops) for a cough. It burnt, and now 2 days later I've almost lost my voice completely. What should I do?

I drank oil of oregano (3 drops) for a cough. It burnt, and now 2 days later I've almost lost my voice completely. What should I do?

Croup: I don't think the voice lost came as an effect of oregano. Croup is very common in this part of the year and it is usually due to swollen vocal cords as a result of a virus infection. Takes about 7 days to resolve. Beyond 7 days--- still symptomatic--- increased chance of bacterial second infection. See MD ...Read more

I have a perforation in my nasal septum and my nose is always dry and congested. I've tried saline solution, singular, and oil of oregano. Not work?

I have a perforation in my nasal septum and my nose is always dry and congested. I've tried saline solution, singular, and oil of oregano. Not work?

Difficult: A septal perforation will usually cause chronic dry, crusty nose and sometimes bloody discharge. Nasal saline, neti pot rinses can help, but sometimes nasal ointment like Bacitracin or neosporin can provide additional relief. Otherwise, see an ENT to evaluate for repair of the defect. ...Read more

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?

Unlikely unless...: Oil of oregano may cause rashes when applied topically but may rarely cause rashes when taken internally in people who are allergic to oregano.
It is far more likely this is related to intestinal yeast. You can try a cream with tea tree oil on your rash.
I advise you also take probiotics and follow a diet low in simple carbs. Also consider taking Yeast Ease: http://tinyurl. Com/lazjwoa ...Read more

Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy).?

Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy).?

YES: There are no known interactions between oregano oil & augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is a good broad-spectrum antibiotic but many sinus infections are viral &/or fungal. Oregano oil kills viruses, fungi & bacteria so is reasonable to take as well. Also consider pelargonium sidoides (sold as umcka), an herb proven effective for sinus infections. I also advise taking a probiotic for anyone on antibioitics. ...Read more

Can I take oregano oil capsules as well as drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse?

Can I take oregano oil capsules as well as drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse?

Start with saline: Oregano oil and grapefruit seed extract are thought to have antimicrobial effects; however, there is little evidence that using them in a nasal rinse is any better than simple salt water nasal rinses. Their risks in causing irritation to the nasal lining or allergic reactions are also poorly known at this time. ...Read more

Is oregano oil a type of neurotoxin?

Is oregano oil a type of neurotoxin?

Oregano oil: There are no neurotoxins in oregano oil. It would not be good to place any oil on a nerve but there is no worry to using oregano oil unless you have an allergy. This does not come from the cooking oregano. Chronic use should be supplemented with iron because it reduces the bodies ability to absorb iron. Pregnant women should avoid use. See your doctor about any other questions. ...Read more

Is it safe to use oregano oil in a vaporiser for a baby?

Is it safe to use oregano oil in a vaporiser for a baby?

I never would: I find that any fragrant material added to vaporizers actually acts as air pollution and often triggers cough and nasal congestion in small infants. While you may fine the fragrance relaxing, the babies nose and airway is very different from yours. Plain water is the best material, along with liberal use of saline nasal wash to clear babies nasal passages. ...Read more
