ReThinkOil Oregano Oil Origanum Minutiflorum Wildcaps Supplement

Origanum minutiflorum (ECOCERT Certified Organic)

Origanum minutiflorum is a rare herb, endemic to the high-altitude region of the Western Taurus Mountains, where its limited growth stretches in a narrow band between the Isparta and Antalya provinces. The Taurus Mountains reach well over 3700 meters (over 12,000ft) and are rich in naturally occurring mineral deposits, such as chromium, silver, copper, iron, ignite and zinc.

This high-altitude region is also abundant in limestone, waterfalls, and underground rivers, which contribute to the pristine growing conditions that produce this rare, highly sought after Origanum.

Sustainable Harvesting

Once permission is granted by the local Forestry Department, endemic minutiflorum is carefully harvested to preserve the integrity of the plant.

ReThinkOil Origanum Minutiflorum Wild Oregano Oil Sustainable Harvesting



Our non-standardized oil is expertly distilled to achieve maximum synergistic activity between the naturally occurring chemical constituents within the oil.

Standardizing by means of high-heat distillation is common in the industry and is oftentimes done to increase levels of specific constituents, primarily carvacrol.

ReThink's Origanum minutiflorum is naturally high in carvacrol, so there is no need to standardize. Our oil is a true gift from Mother Earth.

        In our Blog (Oregano Science) and Practitioner's Corner, Teena provides some of the basics to get your research started, as well as breaks down some popular research studies into layman's terms, to better help you understand the capabilities of what oregano oil can do for you as a natural digestive aid and antimicrobial agent.  Antimicrobial encompasses: antibiotic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic properties.

        We recommend obtaining information through a variety of sources that utilize unbiased, science-based research studies: PubMedExamine.comAromaWeb and NAHA.

        AromaWeb is one of our favorite sites and covers everything from safety & usage to DIY recipes and more.  You can use these resources and others to search for information on usage, safety and effectiveness of essential oils.

        KEY POINTS:

        • Results show oregano’s ability to reduce inflammation throughout the small intestine and colon, promoting the integrity of the intestinal barrier (epithelium), likely due to its effects on intestinal bacteria and immune status.
        • Overall nutrient absorption was increased.
        • Endotoxins, such as e coli, were significantly reduced.

        KEY POINTS:

        • TB, Strep, Staph, E coli and Salmonella are some of the more common types of bacterial infections found in humans.
        • Oregano is shown to be an alternative antibacterial in enhancing the healing process of bacterial infections, in turn preventing antibiotic resistant strain development.
        • Origanum minutiflorum can be used as an alternative to antibiotics to combat microbial diseases, including those of bacterial origin.
        • Origanum minutiflorum displayed a “strong and broad-spectrum application against tested plant pathogens, as well as standard antibiotics”, and could potentially be used as an antimicrobial agent in new drugs for therapy.

        KEY POINTS:
        • Substantial improvements were shown in the digestive capabilities and overall gut health of chickens fed Origanum minutiflorum.
        • The digestive enzyme activities, in both the pancreas and small intestine, significantly increased in chickens fed Origanum minutiflorum.
        • It was shown that Origanum minutiflorum essential oil may provide a progressive effect on the "quality of the intestines, secretion of digestive enzymes, and particularly the antioxidant defense potential against parasitic infections."
        • Higher, longer and wider villi, as well as decreased crypt depth were observed in the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum areas of the intestines, "providing a greater surface area for nutrient digestion and absorption."
        • These improvements contributed to "increased mucosal enzymes, absorption, and the efficiency of the nutrient transport system."
        • Origanum minutiflorum helped to establish "microbial balance throughout the intestines, enhanced nutrient utilization and gut passage rates (motility), as well as encouraged endogenous digestive enzymatic activity", resulting in an overall "increased intestinal absorptive surface area."1)
