Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

To show how powerful these oils are, I made a huge batch of spaghetti (Approx. 5-6 gallons) and didn't put any spices in. At the end I put one drop of Basil oil in and accidentally dropped 2 drops of Oregano oil in the pot. I thought it would be ok because it was such a large batch.

Well, it wasn't ok. All you could taste was "hot" Oregano oil! I have since learned that to cook with essential oils, a toothpick is dipped in the oil, stirred in, then taste it. If you need a bit more, dip a clean toothpick in the oil and stir that in, and so on until you get the taste you want!

Because of its high phenol content, it also digests petrochemicals. To prove it yourself, get a styrofoam cup and put 2-3 drops of Oregano oil on it. Put the cup on a glass plate, because it will digest the styrofoam!

Be careful with the oils of Oregano, Clove and Cinnamon especially, that you don't get them on plastic (in your car especially) or on furniture with varnish. The oil does not distinguish between petrochemicals inside or outside your body!

Petrochemicals inside your body coat cell receptor sites with a petrochemical film and don't allow the proper reactions to take place at that site. We need those receptor sites clean and functioning for optimal health and Oregano oil can do it!
