When you think of oregano, maybe a good tomato sauce comes to mind. While that is certainly a good use for it, oregano also has antibacterial, antifungal and analgesic properties which shouldn’t be overlooked.
This time of year it seems like everyone is picking up a little bug, or in some cases even the flu. Although I haven’t broken out this recipe yet for myself this year, I have used it in the past when I’ve felt like I was beginning to get sick.
It is really quite easy:
-9 teaspoons of fresh oregano chopped
-24 ounces of boiling water
*Optional Additions Include:
– a clove of garlic
– red pepper flakes
You can put the oregano in an infuser, or just into the cup itself and pour the boiling water over it. Let steep for 20 minutes and then sip.
