This page presents some of the scientific studies that have been performed specifically on minutiflorum, as well as various other species and subspecies of origanum. You should keep in mind that research is ongoing and that the isolated studies on essential oils and/or their chemical constituents presented on this website are not meant to diagnose disease or to suggest alternative treatment options.
Most scientific studies on herbals are done in vitro and in vivo, utilizing animals and petri dishes. Because human trials are scarce, dosing for specific conditions has not yet been established. Active infections should always be evaluated and treated by a qualified Practitioner.
