Oregano is associated with the planet Mercury or Venus and the element of air. It is useful in magical meals and cleaning products created to encourage peace and tranquility in a household, to attract joy, and also for general protection, luck, and health.

Oregano is also useful for soothing the heart when you must face separation from a loved one, whether temporary or permanent. Oregano tea drunk before bedtime may induce psychic dreams. Oregano planted outside the house, or scattered inside the house will help protect the home and family, particularly from trouble with the law or other outsiders who might interfere with them and to help maintain privacy.

Oregano tea can be used to treat a variety of symptoms including respiratory congestion, nausea and acid reflux.

Studies have shown that oregano can kill E. coli bacteria, so feel free to load your meatballs, hamburgers, and pasta salad with oregano, and you may want to add a few drops of essential oil to your everyday cleaning solutions to fill your entire home with its protective properties, both magical and mundane!

Oregano is a good source of Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper, Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Manganese.
