It is often used with intestinal Candida/yeast, and as a first aid to help treat food poisoning. Oregano Oil has also been found to have powerful antioxidant effects. This Oil of Oregano product is standardized to 60-75% carvacrol.
Benefits of Oil of Oregano
- Antimicrobial Effects
- Inhibits Yeast Growth
Clinical Applications of Oil of Oregano:
Candida (yeast in gut or vaginal flora): 1-6 caps with each meal
Salmonella food poisoning: 3-5 caps with each meal
Parasites: 3-5 caps with each meal
Inhibits Yeast Growth
An in vitro study demonstrated that oil of oregano, and carvacrol in particular, inhibited the growth of Candida albicans far more effectively than a commonly employed antifungal agent called calcium magnesium caprylate. 
While treating yeast overgrowth, take your Oil of Oregano capsules at a different time than your probiotics (beneficial bacteria). Ideally, 4 or more hours apart.
Protects Against Bad Bacteria
In addition to its anti-fungal action, and according to the results of another in vitro study from Australia, oregano oil has a strong anti-microbial action against a wide number of bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella enterica, and Staphylococcus aureus. 
Other test tube studies have shown that oregano from the Mexican (Lippia) species was more effective than the prescription medication tinidazol in inhibiting the parasite giardia (Giardia duodenalis). 
Stops Food-Borne Pathogens
In another in vitro study, volatile oils of oregano, thyme, cinnamon, and cumin were individually able to stop the growth of another food-borne pathogen called Aspergillus parasiticus. Higher concentrations of these volatile oils were also able to stop the production of a potent poison from Aspergillus called aflatoxin.  Together these facts suggest the volatile oils found in oregano have an important role in preventing the spoilage of food and in reducing the risk of ingesting harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Again, these actions have not yet been confirmed by human clinical trials.
