I will have to try that and also get my son to do that since he seems to get something from college every term.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

HUBBY and I keep Oregon oil in our remedies. We take about 2 drops in a tablespoon of virgin olive oil in the winter to keep our lungs dry and healthy.

I have planted both regular and spicy in our herb garden for my kitchen. Love the flavor in lots of my cooking

Keep on track

Hot and Spicy oregano is more pungent, it is the variety that is best for our desert climate.

What makes oregano spicy? I haven't seen it locally. Does it have some heat? Some special fragrance? Or just stronger? Just curious.

I had a big patch of it that my husband confused for a weed. I finally found a small struggling bit of it and am working on getting it nice and healthy again. Marked it with a small trellis.

Love to grow Oregano! Didn't know all about how good it is for you though. I think a lot of the herbs are better for us than we realize. Thanks for bringing to our attention!

Oregano - yes the easy to grow herb frequently used in Italian foods is quite good for you. I use it all the time! In fact, I use three shakes of the dried herb in the dog's meals. Recall that TV ad for a chicken producer boasting that the use of antibiotics was unnecessary since they use Oregano in the chicken's water!

Oregano has been gaining popularity as a natural remedy, though its use as a health-boosting herb is centuries old. It contains high amounts of Omega-3s, Iron, Manganese, and antioxidants.

Its Essential Oil is well known in natural health communities for its antibacterial properties, and it is even being studied by the mainstream medical community for its potential benefits. It is considered to be antibacterial, antiparasitic, antiseptic, antiviral and immune stimulating.
