Oregano Tea: Herbal Medicine
Did you know you can make herbal tea with fresh herbs and boiling water? Oregano is an herb that’s commonly used in cooking, but few people know its use goes beyond just a seasoning. You can also brew oregano tea for consumption. As it is, oregano has a peppery, slightly bitter taste. This makes for a distinctly flavored tea, but people tend to drink oregano tea more for its potential health benefits than its flavor.
Traditionally, people have used oregano tea as a herbal medicine to soothe a variety of health issues, including:
- Sore throat
- Digestive problems
- Aching muscles
- Skin sores
- To boost overall health
Fresh oregano transforms in 5 minutes into an earthy, fresh drink that’s positively restorative. All you need is a few teaspoons and boiling water!
