…at least in chickens.
The people over at Perdue Chicken Farms put oregano in their chickens’ water to eliminate the need for antibiotics. Supposedly oregano contains antioxidants that keep the chickens from getting infections, which is the reason for the antibiotics in the first place.
In another advertisement, Perdue claims that rosemary and thyme help the chickens’ immune system.
What a discovery! Since we humans base what we put into our own systems on test studies done on animals, that then are generalized to the human population, I’m thinking “GO OREGANO”!
Oregano water is the plan. For me and Steve. Actually, I’ve been making it for a few months now and we drink it fairly consistently – Steve puts it in his hibiscus and lavender water that he takes to work five days a week.
For Steve, the ratio is one part hibiscus water, one part lavender water, one part oregano water. I drink a juice glass of it plain and cold every few days or in the evening when I’m thirsty and I think of it. There’s no set schedule. We just think we’re doing our systems good with it.
Organic is best, since it isn’t grown with the use of pesticides. He says the oregano water makes the other two taste better. I agree.
To make the oregano water simply steep dried or fresh oregano – as much as you want – in boiled water – as much as you want. Strain solids through wire mesh strainer, then through a coffee filter lined in a wire mesh strainer.
Pour into clean jars and refrigerate till ready to drink.
