    Rossa this is from WEB MD lots of uses Oregano is used for respiratory tract disorders such as coughs, asthma, croup, and bronchitis. It is also used for gastrointestinal (GI) disorders such as heartburn and bloating. Other uses include treating menstrual cramps, rheumatoid arthritis, urinary tract disorders including urinary tract infections (UTIs), headaches, and heart conditions. The oil of oregano is taken by mouth for intestinal parasites, allergies, sinus pain, arthritis, cold and flu, swine flu, earaches, and fatigue. It is applied to the skin for skin conditions including acne, athlete's foot, oily skin, dandruff, canker sores, warts, ringworm, rosacea, and psoriasis; as well as for insect and spider bites, gum disease, toothaches, muscle pain, and varicose veins. Oregano oil is also used topically as an insect repellent.

    Sara and Luis ..thanks, I will package them for my next yard sale as 'give always' with your comments and suggestions for use. I would be reluctant to use them in their natural state for medicinal use.or should That be a concern ? Actually the taste is not pleasant unless Cooked in sauces and the like. Thanks again should you respond ..
