Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 8 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Everything from herbs to some personal blogs. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Oregano!!!


We all know that fragrant spice oregano that so many of us love -- but did you know that oregano is one of the most powerful essential oils on the market today, and yes it IS one in the same!!! It is high in anti-oxidant value, phenolic acids & flavonoids...so it helps with anti-aging as well as being one of nature's perfect anti-biotics. Oregano essential oil also contains the ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria & fungi. It's a great anti-microbial & anti-viral to help build the immune system, fighting colds, viruses, the flu, sore throat, strep throat, sinus infections & more! This powerful antibiotic is able to penetrate the cell wall & fight viral infections as well. Pharmaceutical antibiotics are unable to do this. This is one of the safe essential oils to take internally, but it needs to be diluted in a good edible carrier oil. The wonderful thing about this herb is that even in a tea with some oregano leaves, it can help the body fight all those nasties I mentioned above!

It's main chemical components include carvacrol & there's been over 800 medical studies done on this ingredient alone!!! Carvacrol has been found to expedite cancer cell death, reduce bacterial infection & inflammation. It has antimicrobial, antitumor, antimutagenic, analgesic, & anti-parasitic properties. It also contains thymol, which has been found scientifically to have antiseptic and anti-fungal characteristics which are both shared with thyme essential oil.

A new study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers found that oregano oil showed anti-bacterial properties against all 5 of the bad bacteria species. The highest activity it had was against E-coli, would could suggest it could help treat food poisoning.

With antibiotic resistance on the rise, having natural alternatives on hand is more important than ever. Anti-virals hold the virus down resulting in disabling the viral cells so that the immune system can kick it!! Powerful anti-fungal for warts, athlete's foot & more.
