Wild Mediterranean Oregano Oil (Real Origanum Vulgare Specie) is grown wild and handpicked from the mountainous regions of western TURKEY and never farmed. The process of extracting this oregano oil is steam distilled from the leaves only without any chemicals or alcohol in an ISO 9001-2000 facility, then ECO certified Food Grade Essential Oil. The last and most important step of our product is that it is bottled in the USA in a FDA cGMP compliant bottling Facility. Every step it takes to produce this fine product is natural and cannot be compared. While it is food grade and used internally, you must dilute it with coconut or olive oil for external use. Enjoy!
