Where is NowFoods Oregano Oil derived from and how do they dilute Oregano Oil?
NOW® Oregano Oil is a highly concentrated all-natural extract that should be diluted before use. We recommend diluting Oregano Oil in Olive Oil at a ratio of 1:4 – 1 ounce of Oregano Oil in 4 ounces of Olive Oil or another food grade oil. Because Oregano is highly concentrated it should never be used undiluted, unless in external applications. Even then, please exercise caution. Even though this is a natural product, its concentration is much higher than that found naturally.
Nowfoods Oregano Oil is derived from origanum vulgare, which is grown in the Mediterannean. It contains a minimum of 55% carvacrol, one of the active components naturally occurring in Oregano. Our product is all natural and not genetically modified in any way.
