What if I told you that one of the best cures for colds and throat problems is right in your kitchen?
We're not talking about the medicine you get at the pharmacy. We're talking about a very commonly used spice: oregano.
Both oregano tea and oregano oil are chock full of properties that are beneficial to your health.
Oregano oil has antibacterial, antiseptic and healing properties. It can protect your immune system from viral and bacterial attacks, preventing a large variety of diseases. Furthermore, it contains several volatile oils with anti-fungal, carminative, and diuretic properties.
The vitamins it contains are vitamins A, C, and E, as well as magnesium, iron, potassium, zinc, and calcium.
Here is how to make the tea:
– 1 tablespoon of dry oregano leaves;
– 2 cups of water.
Boil some water in a pot.
After it has boiled, add the dry leaves, and turn off the stove.
Once that is done, let it steep for a while.
You should drink 2 cups of this tea a day in order to improve your overall health.
Oregano oil is a little harder to make, but it's worth it.
Wash three tablespoons of oregano and let them air dry naturally on a paper towel.
In the meanwhile, warm up a cup of extra virgin olive oil. Then put the olive oil and oregano leaves in a jar.
Shake the jar to cover the oregano in the olive oil and begin the releasing of the oregano's substances into the oil.
Leave the jar in the refrigerator for 3 days in order for the mixture to steep.
To take it, put a mouthful of water in your mouth, lean your head back and pour 2 to 3 drops of the oil in your mouth, then swallow. Drink some water afterwards. Do this once a day for seven days.
