Oregano
Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a perennial herb that contains phenolic compounds such as carvacol and thymol. It is commonly used as a culinary spice and preservative agent in foods. The leaves, stems, and flowers are used medicinally and have been traditionally employed to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal disorders and menstrual irregularities.

According to secondary sources, modern herbalists recommend topical or oral application of oregano oil for the treatment of infection.

Oregano was also used medicinally for healing and disinfection, with reports of it having been applied by Hippocrates as an antiseptic.

Uses with inconclusive laboratory evidence include antifungal, antioxidant, antibacterial, and insect-repelling activities. The antibacterial and antioxidant effects of oregano are of particular interest to the food industry, as oregano may hold promise as a natural preservative.
