Oil of oregano is a natural substance that is made from wild oregano plants. Because it is wild, oil of oregano is reportedly made without any additives or chemicals. Naturopaths suggest that oil of oregano can help treat a variety of symptoms and aid in weight loss. Some preliminary research has shown that oil of oregano is a germicide and has antibacterial properties. No scientific research exists that connects oil of oregano to weight loss; however, oil of oregano is purported to help with digestive health and increase metabolic rate which helps lead to weight loss.

Step 1

Purchase oil of oregano from your health food store. Oil of oregano is available in liquid or capsule forms.

Step 2

Take the capsule form according to package directions. Make sure that the capsules contain at least 70 percent carvacrol to be effective in weight loss.

Step 3

Dilute oil of oregano in liquid form with olive oil. Mix olive oil and oil of oregano in equal parts in order to drink the oil of oregano. Stir into a an 8 oz. glass of water and drink completely.

Step 4

Drink the mixture three to four times a day. Oil of oregano can be taken on an empty stomach but drinking with a meal may help speed up your metabolism.

Step 5

Add four drops of oil of oregano to a glass of low calorie fruit juice if you are unable to take the oil and water mixture. The fruit juice will mask the strong taste of the oil.
