    Hunter Rose I hope you have follow your directions. One drop of a mixture of oregano oil with olive oil burned my skin, blinded me and send me to the ER; so it might be helpful in theory, but in reality, don't use it unless you know exactly proportions of the mixture; salt and water sounds much better at this time
