Using Pure Oregano Oil as an Antihisamine
Oregano as an Antihistamine
When foreign agents, such as pollen, dust, mold, chemicals, fungus, and bacteria are invading the body, a chemical called histamine is released which produces reactions that are similar to allergic reactions – nasal congestion, increased mucous production, and sneezing. Histamine reducing herbs like oregano aid in counteracting histamine and may help reduce these reactions.
Oregano also contains rosmarinic acid. An article summarizing a study that examined the ability of Rosmarinic acid to inhibit allergic irritation appeared in a 2004 edition of Clinical & Experimental Allergy. It was discovered that rosmarinic acid reduces fluid buildup and even swelling during an allergy attack, making it a natural histamine-reducing compound. To use pure oregano oil as an antihistamine, inhale the vapors.
