Oregano oil is best known as a safe and effective natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compound, especially helpful for sinus and respiratory issues.  A new study shows that it also has direct anti-pain signaling within nerves.

The study involves the active component of oregano oil, carvacrol.  Researchers used a toxic nerve irritant to induce swelling, fluid retention, and nerve pain in mice.  They found that carvacrol treatment was able to prevent pain and fluid retention, turning down a key inflammatory signal (TNFa). 

This data documents a potent mechanism by which oregano oil can lower pain.
