Oregano is well-known as a culinary (cooking) herb that lends a unique flavor and aroma to many dishes. However, numerous clinical studies are proving that oregano's benefits extend to supporting many of the body's health systems. 

The clinical study 'Antibacterial activity of oregano (Origanum vulgare Linn.) against gram positive bacteria'  evaluated the potency of oil of oregano against Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermis and evaluated its effect as positive. 

Another study, 'Antibacterial activity of oregano' concluded '...essential oil of oregano exhibited maximum activity against S. saprophyticus...' (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19783523). 

The study 'Antimicrobial and Cytotoxic Activities of Origanum Essential Oils' observes: 'essential oil of O. vulgare ssp. hirtum was extremely bactericidal at 1/4000 dilution and even at dilutions as high as 1/50000 caused considerable decrease in bacterial growth rates. The same essential oil also exhibited high levels of cytotoxicity against four permanent animal cell lines including two derived from human cancers.'  (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jf950540t). 

The study 'Oregano extract ointment for wound healing'  observes: 'Oregano extract ointment decreased bacterial contamination and subsequent infection on post-surgical wounds and had equivalent overall scar appearance compared to petrolatum.' (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21968667)
