Carvacrol is found in more than 100 plants and has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. It possesses potent antioxidant properties, improves the immune system and overall health, anti-inflammatory characteristics, antimicrobial actions, and boosts energy. It can also help with some forms of cancer, although the evidence is still not conclusive. Carvacrol is an orange-yellow organic compound that acts as a solvent and antimicrobial agent. It has become popular because it easily dissolves essential oils, herbs, and other compounds in plants, making them easier for humans to ingest. Carvacrol also has antimicrobial properties; it's used in products such as soap and shampoo to make the products stronger due to the elimination of harmful microbes.

What are the benefits of the cold-pressed method?
The cold-pressed method for oregano oil starts with the plants being grown in rich soil sans pesticides or herbicides and are watered by hand using natural rainwater. In the harvesting process, leaves of the plant are picked every morning and taken indoors, carefully stacked into heaps.
The heaps are left to dry at room temperature or in the sun while being turned over every once. Once the leaves have been dried, they are then pounded into a powder with mortars and pestles. The powdered oregano leaves are then sieved using fine mesh nets, stored in tightly sealed containers, and used as required.
Using the cold-pressed method for oregano oil gives the oil its fresh, herbaceous aroma that is distinct from other oils.
