Wild Oregano Extra Strong features a potency-validated 30% concentration of our carvacrol-rich oregano oil blended with certified organic olive oil for those that prefer a more intense flavour and therapeutic effect.
Wild Oregano C93 is imported directly from the Mediterranean, steam-distilled, hand-picked, and chemical-free.
The high purity of the Origanum minutiflorum species reduces the bitter, harsh taste common to other species of oregano. Plus, Wild Oregano C93 is blended with premium, cold-pressed, extravirgin, certified organic olive oil to offer a powerful antioxidant agent with an extra mild taste.
The quality of oregano oil is based on its species and carvacrol content. Wild Oregano C93 contains the rare species Origanum minutiflorum, which boasts the highest naturally occurring carvacrol concentration of total volatile oils when compared to other oregano oils available: 93.14%. This species of oregano cannot be cultivated or claimed as organically grown, as it will only grows at elevations over 1500 metres in the wild.
The species Origanum minutiflorum grows in the higher altitudes of the Mediteranian mountains. The natural carvacrol content has been demonstrated by scientific research carried out by Anadolu University, at the Department of Pharmacology, and by Ankara University, it was further verified to be naturally occurring, without the use of any synthetic chemicals or solvents. There are over 21 species of Origanum growing wild in the Mediteranian alone, and the altitude of where they grow can determine their carvacrol content.
At New Roots Herbal, we have access to the same laboratory equipment (brand and model) that is used for drug testing on Olympic athletes. Montreal hosts the headquarters for Olympic drug testing, and their lab confirms and/or verifies any disputes that may arise in these sporting events. Our sensitive, high-technology instruments have a greater sensitivity than older scientific-testing equipment. With these sophisticated instruments, we achieve the most precise test results possible. Our lab is able to identify and validate oregano species and their carvacrol content.
