Antibiotic 3Burns

Burns are devastating and traumatizing. Those with serious burn injuries require extreme care to reduce morbidity and mortality. With patients who have more than 40% of the total body surface area affected, 75% of all deaths were related to sepsis from the burn wound infection.

A study on oregano oil against pathogenic bacteria showed that whilst efficiently inactivating bacteria there was no evidence of resistance development.

The study also showed that when applying oregano oil topically to third-degree burn wounds the bacterial load was sufficiently reduced. It also showed no significant side effects on the skin histology or genotoxicity.

They concluded that oregano oil could be used as an alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of wound-associated infections.

ANTI-FUNGAL

Antifungal 2

Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus or Onychomycosis, is a fairly common problem, yet can be quite difficult to treat. Many internal antifungals do not work as effectively due to the body's blood supply being relatively set apart from toenails. Hence strong antifungals that can be applied topically are the most effective solution to toenail fungus.

Oil of Wild Oregano contains Carvacrol which has fantastic antifungal
properties. A study performed by the Department of Horticulture and National Food
Safety and Toxicity Centre at the Michigan State University demonstrated that Carvacrol has very effective antifungal properties. It has also been shown that in comparison with other antifungal essential oils such as thyme and sage, oregano oil displayed the highest and broadest antifungal activity.
