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

Does oil of oregano destroy healthy bacteria probiotics?

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?

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

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Nobody knows: There have been no studies of even short-term use, and nobody knows what is in the oils and their flavorings and what they do. Oil in general ain't great for lungs, and the vehicle used in these vaporizers is propylene glycol, and nobody knows what his does when inhaled either. While it is likely that vaping will not be as bad as smoking tobacco, nobody can say that yet with certainty. ...Read more

Are there any possible negative side effects to using eucalyptus oil in an infrared sauna long term? K

None known: Eucalyptus oil has many proven healing benefits. Inhaling the vapors in a sauna is beneficial for lungs and sinuses. You can have too much of anything so excess amounts might cause irritation of your eyes, lungs or sinuses or dizziness, but this would be an acute reaction and there is no known problem using small amounts long-term.
