Observations and Anecdotal Information
Mountain savory is a culinary herb that has recently become more widely received as an essential oil. It has an enormous capacity to stop bacterial and microbial infections, and is great to take internally when in need of a natural ‘antibiotic’.
It is a fairly “hot” oil, so must be well diluted for use on the skin, like thyme and oregano to avoid a burning sensation.
Mountain savory essential oil is especially helpful with lung inflammation and respiratory conditions.
It is also a helpful treatment for digestive system issues, including Crohn’s, ulcers, IBS, and chronic heartburn or indigestion. It can help reduce non-beneficial organisms in the digestive tract, and for this purpose it should be used along with a good probiotic, or better yet a daily dose or two of plain live cultured yogurt.
It can be effective for infant colic, and must be diluted to 0.25% to 1% for this purpose. (That means 2 drops in 2 cups of milk or water). Other oils such as anise or ginger are usually regarded as being preferable for infants.
Generally regarded as safe at normal dosage.
Avoid use during pregnancy and lactation.
Avoid with infants or small children, unless recommended by a health care professional.
Do not use internally for extended time periods. Savory contains ketones, and may become hepatic with extensive use. Use low doses for short duration, for best results.
Do not use with liver diseases or chronic liver conditions.
Keep all essential oils away from eyes.
Store in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
All internal uses should be researched and/or supported by a health care professional. Product quality and dosage are critically important when using essential oils internally.
