Ancient Apothecary Oregano Essential Oil 

  • Certified USDA Organic and Non GMO
  • 15mL / .5 ounce
  • Cleansing
  • Supports a healthy immune system†
  • Supports healthy microbial balance†

  • From Dr. Axe: Oregano essential oil has benefits that were first recognized in ancient Greece, where oregano essential oil was often used on skin to help support its health.†  It’s often added to food or taken in empty supplement capsules to maintain a healthy microbial balance in the body.

    In the kitchen or out, oregano is amazing! It’s a favorite cooking spice with potent antioxidants, but it can also perform as a strong cleansing agent.

    Oregano is a plant that is native to higher altitudes and typically grows in the mountains, which, incidentally, is how it got its name oregano, which means “delight of the mountains.”

    Essential oil of oregano is extracted via steam distillation of fresh oregano leaves. As an herb that is a member of the mint family (Labiatae), and has been considered a precious plant for over 2,500 years for health support and other purposes.

    Found in the Mediterranean, throughout many parts of Europe and in South and Central Asia, quality oregano is distilled to extract the essential oil from the herb, which is where a high concentration of the herb’s active constituents are found. In fact, it can take over 1,000 pounds of oregano to produce just one pound of oregano essential oil.

    Oil of oregano contains two powerful compounds called carvacrol and thymol, both of which have been shown to support healthy microbial balance in the body. Oregano’s oil is primarily made of carvacrol, while the plant’s leaves contain a variety of antioxidant compounds, such as phenols, triterpenes, rosmarinic acid, ursolic acid and oleanolic acid.

    Some other oregano oil health-supporting components include cymene, caryophyllene, pinene, bisabolene, linalool, borneol, geranyl acetate, linalyl acetate and terpinene. For example, the pinene content found in oregano essential oil, when taken internally, has been noted for its health-supporting benefits, while, when diffused, it can help in staying alert.

    Additionally, linalool is a common element of many essential oils, including oregano essential oil.

    Oregano oil uses and benefits:

    • Add 10 drops to a spray bottle full of water for a DIY cleaner for countertops and more.
    • To use as a supplement, add one drop to four ounces of water or place a drop in an empty supplement capsule and consume.
    • Add one drop in place of one tablespoon ground oregano to your favorite Italian dishes.
    • Place a drop or two in a diffuser filled with water and diffuse for a few hours for a clearing effect.
    • Add several drops to a spray bottle filled with water to use as a household cleaner, including kitchen countertops and more.
    • Add a few drops to your favorite liquid soap and shake up prior to use.

    Oregano essential oil blends well with the following essential oils: lavender, rosemary, bergamot, chamomile, cypress, cedarwood, tea tree and eucalyptus. These combinations are often made and widely used by aromatherapists and herbalists.

    Ancient Apothecary Lemon Essential Oil

  • Certified USDA Organic and Non GMO
  • 15mL / .5 ounce
  • Cleansing; Purifying; Invigorating
  • Supports healthy digestion†

  • Dr. Axe says, “I believe that lemon essential oil is indeed one of the most “essential” oils to have on hand, as it can used for so many purposes, from a natural teeth whitener, household cleaner and laundry freshener, to being used as an uplifting oil. You are covering a lot of ground with this one essential oil!”

    Versatility of uses with cleansing, purifying, and invigorating properties—that’s what makes lemon oil a favorite!

    Lemon is a flowering plant that belongs to the Rutaceae family. Lemon plants are grown in many countries all over the world, although they are native to Asia and are believed to have been brought to Europe around 200 A.D. In America, English sailors would use lemons while on the sea to ensure that they consumed adequate amounts of vitamin C.

    Lemon essential oil comes from cold-pressing the lemon peel and not the inner fruit. The peel is actually the most nutrient-dense portion of the lemon because of its fat-soluble phytonutrients. Lemon essential oil is composed of many natural compounds, including terpenes, sesquiterpenes, aldehydes, alcohols, esters and sterols.

    Lemons and lemon oil are popular because of their refreshing scent and invigorating, purifying and cleansing properties.  In general, lemon oil has powerful antioxidants and helps to support a healthy response to inflammation, to support healthy microbial balance, to support healthy energy levels and to support healthy digestion and healthy normal detoxification.  

    Lemons are one of the most popular citrus fruits in the world and contain naturally occurring limonene, one of many powerful plant compounds known as terpenes. Limonene is an orange terpene, and terpenes are found in essential oils, particularly citrus oils, which are often used in aromatherapy, fragrances and to naturally flavor food.

    Limonene occurs within the rind of the lemon. Like other citrus fruits, lemon oil possesses a large amount of limonene, which gives it its distinct, invigorating aroma. Interestingly enough, lemon essential oil can be both stimulating and calming.

    And get this: It’s said to take up to 45 lemons to produce a 15mL bottle of lemon essential oil.

    Now that’s power-packed!

    Lemon oil uses:

    • Diffuse to promote a positive mood.
    • Use as a cleaner to clean and purify the air and surfaces
    • Take internally as a supplement (place one drop in an empty supplement capsule OR dilute a drop in 4 ounces of water).
    • Use as a furniture polish—just add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect and shine wood finishes.
    • To preserve and protect leather furniture and other leather surfaces or garments, use a cloth soaked in lemon oil to rub them down.
    • Add lemon oil to spray bottle of water to clean tables, countertops and other surfaces.
    • Use lemon oil for the early stages of tarnish on silver and other metals.
    • To remove stubborn sticky residue on surfaces, put lemon oil on a rag and wipe surfaces.
    • To remove grease after changing the oil in an automobile, wash hands with lemon oil.

    Lemon oil blends well with many other essential oils, including lavender oil, rose oil, peppermint oil, sandalwood oil, tea tree oil and geranium oil, which is one reason why lemon essential oil is a popular oil to use aromatically for aromatherapists and herbalists. Keep out of reach of children.

    Ancient Apothecary Tea Tree Essential Oil 

  • Certified USDA Organic and Non GMO
  • 15mL / .5 ounce
  • Purifying, Cleansing
  • Supports a healthy microbial balance†

  • Dr. Axe says, “For its cleansing power and more, I believe tea tree essential oil can’t be beat! Chelsea and I use it to clean at home, and I even use it on my skin after I shave as well as a DIY aftershave.”

    Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, has strong purifying qualities, making it an ideal oil for skin-cleansing regimens and for household cleaning use—as well as an air purifier and to generally support healthy microbial balance, skin health support, and a healthy immune system.

    Tea tree oil is truly nothing short of amazing! In fact, the health benefits of tea tree essential oil are due to its multifaceted healthy attributes—ones that are recognized and appreciated worldwide.

    The name “tea tree,” however, may be misleading, since tea tree oil is not extracted from the plant commonly associated with the beverage known as tea. In fact, it’s not even remotely related to tea oil, which is extracted from the seed of the tea plant.

    More accurately, tea tree oil is extracted via steam distillation of twigs and leaves of the tea tree, which goes by the botanical name Melaleuca alternifolia. Tea tree oil is native to Australia—in Southeast Queensland and New South Wales mostly—which explains why it is such a common, popular essential oil there. And while it’s a favorite in Australia, it’s also become a revered and trusted essential oil worldwide.

    Tea tree oil is made up of some powerful constituents, including alpha pinene, beta pinene, sabinene, myrcene, alpha phellandrene, alpha terpinene, limonene, cineole, gamma terpinene, para cymene, terpinolene, linalool, terpineol and alpha terpineol.

    That’s a bunch of scientific names, but the bottom line is that tea tree oil, due to its properties, can provide powerful benefits. Truth be told, tea tree oil has such a strong reputation for its benefits that it’s commonly known as a “go to” among some people, including many Australians who keep this precious essential oil readily available in their household cabinets.

    • For occasional skin irritations, apply 1–2 drops of tea tree essential oil onto affected area.
    • Combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser for added cleansing benefits.
    • Apply to skin after shaving.
    • Apply to fingernails and toenails after showering to purify and keeps nails looking healthy.
    • Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to clean countertops and more.
    • Apply to the bottoms of feet and inside shoes to freshen them.
    • Create your own aftershave with tea tree oil and cedarwood.

    Tea tree oil is a great blending oil. It blends well with lavender, lemon, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, geranium, myrrh, nutmeg, rosewood, rosemary and thyme essential oils.
