Oregano & Oregano Vitality- Young Living


Steam distilled from the leaves of the Oregano plant, a hardy perennial herb and member of the mint family. The ancient Greeks and Romans have a profound appreciation for oregano, using it for various medicinal purposes. In fact, its name comes from the Greek words “oros” and “ganos,” which are words for mountain and joy — oregano literally means “joy of the mountain.”

It was revered as a symbol of happiness, and it was an ancient tradition to crown brides and grooms with a laurel of oregano. Its most well known constituents are Thymol, Cavracol, Beta-caryophyllin (BCP), and rosemaric acid- a powerful antioxidant


*** ALWAYS DILUTE IN TOPICAL APPLICATIONS because it can cause skin irritation.

Oregano is highly recommended as an oil to add to your arsenal of natural healing tools, as it has a wide range of uses, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It also positively benefits the muscles and bones. 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.  Oregano is a very flavorful herb that is often used in Italian, Greek and Spanish cooking. It is often used in seasoning blends, including Italian Seasoning, and pairs well with meats, tomato dishes, and eggs.

A Blade of Grass


Grass BladeUnless a man can duplicate a blade of grass, he can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge

~ Thomas Edison


My sons and I spent Valentine’s Day dissecting a worm. Because nothing says love like worm guts, right?


What we discovered was so much more than dirt-filled intestines. We were dazzled by the incredible complexity of creation! Worms do not have a heart, yet they have an elaborate cardiovascular system. They don’t have a brain, yet their nerve relay system is sensitive, responsive and powerful. They don’t have a stomach, but they till our soil and bring life to the earth through their digestive system. What we didn’t expect was to discover that even the lowliest of life forms was an intricate masterpiece of ingenuity and design!


What does this have to do with grass? I love this quote because Thomas Edison recognized what so many of us fail to see. The commonplace, the everyday, the uninspiring… if we look closely, if we reallly take the time to observe, study and ponder them- they are not common at all!


When we walk barefoot through lush green grass, we are blissfully unaware of the intricate, living mechanisms underfoot. For starters, grass is THE major food source for life all over the earth! The sugars locked in the polysaccharides of the cell wall make grass one of the most significant sources of renewable energy in the world.


It’s roots search the darkness for water and nutrients. Its leaves harness the energy from sunlight and converts sunshine into food. Its tenacity is astounding- grass can grow through concrete walls. Its perseverance is why homeowners love to grow it (but hate to mow it) Not only that, in 2018 certain strains of grass have been shown effective in destroying cancer cells…


In fact, many (Many, MANY) plants have been shown to contain anti-cancer properties. The cutting edge of medicine has only BEGUN to discover the secret life of plants, their mind blowing complexity, their chemical constituency, their life-giving properties. Plants are the most sophisticated chemical factories on planet earth!


Oh we can send a man to the moon. We can circumnavigate the globe in a fraction of a second through technology. Nuclear power, jet engines, satellites, computers, particle colliders… science is advancing at such an exponential rate that it seems nothing is impossible for man to achieve. Except for a blade of grass. Hell, man can’t even duplicate the amino acids necessary to build ONE SINGLE CELL of a blade of grass, let alone the entire plant!


So remember, the next time you lay in a field of green on a warm summer’s day- all we reeeeally know is that we truly know nothing at all!
