Oregano Tea


I have been had cough and sore throat for a couple of days now, and when I visited my brother and his family the other day, my sister-in-law made me oregano tea. She grows her own oregano plant for both culinary and medicinal purposes.

In a pot of boiling water, put fresh oregano leaves. Let steep and strain. You can add honey to make the tea more palatable.

Interesting! I would never have guessed that oregano would work as a home remedy. How effective was it? I imagine it probably tasted pretty intense.


Nice tea recipe! It's amazing that there are so many different things and resources to use from nature that can help us. There's no one way to get well, which is really awesome if you think about it!
Oregano contains chemicals that might help reduce cough and spasms. Oregano also might help digestion by increasing bile flow and fighting against some bacteria, viruses, fungi, intestinal worms, and other parasites.
