Oregano Oil for Skin
Not surprisingly, oregano oil is very beneficial for skin and is one of the popular choices for massages. In addition, if you have small cuts or scrapes on your skin, applying diluted oregano oil may help. This essential oil is also commonly used to help provide relief for acne, Athlete’s Foot, dandruff, and warts, among others.
Oregano Oil for Colds
One reason people extract oregano oil is because it contains antioxidant properties. This essential oil is recognized for helping to relieve cold symptoms and is known to help remedy certain viruses.
Does Oregano Oil Kill Viruses?
Oregano oil is known for containing a property called carvacrol, which has been found to kill some viruses and even bacteria. While oregano oil is advertised as an immunity booster, a remedy for acne, a pain reliever, etc., it is not an official cure. Nevertheless, oregano oil does contain antibacterial properties which helps to kill viruses.
OilExTech was founded in 2012 by Bill Dean and David Hackleman. Our company got its start as a research project at OSU, by focusing on small-scale oil extraction, including oregano essential oil extraction. Dean and Hackleman, along with three graduate students, discovered an efficient method of oil extraction using microwave ovens. From there, the men began a two and a half year development process until the kits developed into what they are today.
We have several EssenEx oil extraction kits available. Each of these are able to extract high quality oils from oregano, lavender, hemp, orange zest, and more. Our extraction kits are effective tools suited for students, professionals, and hobbyists alike.
Although there are certainly products that are cheaper or capable of larger-scale production, the EssenEx from OilExTech is the perfect balance between affordability, efficiency, and ease of use.
