Discover the Power of Oregano!
~More than just a food, this herb can heal in many ways~
Oregano is a major asset in staying healthy and combating
Colds, Flus, and many common respiratory and GI ailments.
In our present times, it is even proving hopeful as a combatant
against the new Covid-19 Coronavirus with lab results coming
back positive in controlled tests, but it will take time before
more is known with certainty.
It has been proven that Oregano is beneficial in many areas like
maintaining cholesterol, preventing and treating bronchitis
and respiratory conditions, preventing cardiovascular disease, and cancer
as well as helping with PMS, depression, and muscle pain.
Oregano can help with type 2 diabetes, but could be
contraindicated for type 1 as it lowers blood sugar.
This is all due to the highly nutritive contents of Oregano as
well as it being Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Fungal, Anti-Bacterial,
and high in Antioxidants; Antioxidants are the main component that fights
free radicals in your body. Free radicals are molecules that don’t
chemically bond with others and can lead to conditions like cancer.
Besides all the excellent culinary uses, Oregano is very
easy to make an infused oil or alcohol-based tincture from.
Basic recipes for making tinctures are provided in the links below,
but making Oil of Oregano is something that needs to be done with fresh herb
or diluting Oregano Essential Oil into a carrier oil.
Making Oregano Essential Oil requires a complicated distillation process
that is not easily done at home, but we at Rae & Ryan’s are able to make
an infused Oil of Oregano from fresh herb. If anyone has an interest in
an oil-based Oregano application then please contact us directly. We are
more than happy to produce that product if there is a desire for it.
The dry herb we sell here is best for culinary applications, alcohol tincture
infusions, or making an herbal tea.
We prefer Oregano Oil for topical applications and room diffusers, but
we find that an alcohol-based tincture works great for a throat
disinfectant, hand sanitizer, and all internal applications. Ingesting oregano in either
form will reap the benefits since your body can metabolize both forms.
While eating Oregano in something like a pasta sauce is very tasty, the
amount you would have to consume for medicinal benefits is unreasonable.
For the health benefits of Oregano, it is best to make a concentrated form
such as a tincture or an oil.
We at Rae & Ryan’s Gourmet Foods are not professionals in the medical
field or licensed in any way to diagnose an ailment or prescribe medicine.
We are not claiming that Oregano can prevent or cure Covid-19 or
that it can ABSOLUTELY do anything. Oregano is one of many naturopathic
options that help the body naturally boost immunity and defense to the
perils that you encounter in the world.
Any new supplements or medications should be cleared by your primary physician.
There is, however, much in the way of published research available online by
reputable sources that you can read in the links provided below.
There are a few notable contraindications which are that Oregano can lower
blood sugar so type 1 diabetics should be careful using oregano regularly
or avoid altogether. If you are anemic Oregano is not advised as it can
lower your absorption rate of iron. Oregano can act as a blood thinner and
should not be combined with other blood thinners.
Oregano is not to be taken by pregnant women.
~What we offer~
We believe Oregano to be a very powerful herb in both flavor and medicinal
application. We are proud to bring to you the freshest and highest potency
product we can offer that was estate-grown using organic methods. As with
all foods and medicines you should do your own due diligence to know what is

Oregano is one of the most vigorous and dependably producing plants in our
line of Estate-Grown herbs that we can pick, dry, and ship to you on-demand
All of our herbs are ground to order for culinary purposes, but if you
intend to make a tincture or tea, it is best to do with whole leaves.
Please choose the appropriate product for your intended application.

All of our products come vacuum sealed in a non-reactive and food safe Mylar bag with a tamper-evident and heat-sealed tear-away strip. The Mylar bag features a reusable zipper closure for ease of use and storage which eliminates needing to transfer the product to another container. These bags are light, oxygen, and odor-blocking for maximum protection from environmental factors that cause oxidation and rapid aging of volatile oils and flavor compounds. All of our products are sealed in these Mylar bags the day they are batched to ensure the best preservation of freshness and quality possible. Each product will also contain a 3-gram silica gel Tyvek desiccant packet to help absorb any moisture and oxygen in the bag over the course of its use. The desiccant packets are FDA approved as pharmaceutical/food grade and 100% non-toxic. We strongly encourage you to press all air out of the bag after each use before zipping close and to store bags in a cool place away from direct sunlight or any heat sources, such as an oven or microwave.
-This is what we believe in, it’s why we are here-
In this industry, all the big players in the market have to produce at such large volumes in order to be able to anticipate the demand of the market that product is often stockpiled and sitting around waiting for distribution. “It’ll always be available and it’s always on the shelf” is something you can count on. The downside is that when you go shopping and buy a jar of seasoning from any major brand in a grocery store the odds are very high that the product you picked up was produced a long, long time ago in a factory far away.
I think we can all relate to what an old can of coffee grounds or a week old bottle of wine tastes like after it has been sitting around too long. It may have been good, even great, once… but time ages everyone and everything, sometimes for better, but usually for worse.
Quality and Freshness are the primary goals that we at Rae&Ryan’s Gourmet Foods are looking to excel at, well besides creating new and unique flavors that will knock your socks off! We do not subscribe to the concept of compromising quality for the gains of quantity. We are not trying to make the fastest buck possible and get out before it all falls apart. We are working every day to create a brand you can trust and rely on to be the best and never compromise.
That sounds good and well, but what does that actually mean you say? Well, that means that we are as close to the source of the ingredients as possible so we know how old they are. A select few ingredients we grow ourselves here at the homestead and it doesn’t get fresher than that. The rest we source fresh/raw and organic as much as possible which gets processed and dried on-site. The ingredients we can’t grow or source fresh we source already dried from only the highest of high-quality suppliers who also believe in our philosophy of quality over quantity.
What this means for you as the consumer is that you are guaranteed to receive product that was produced within the last month or less, often less. Some of our less common products or large volume orders are made to order and shipped within three days. When you open a vacuum-sealed pouch of seasoning from Rae&Ryan’s your nose will know that what you hold in your hand has not been sitting in a hot factory, a flatbed truck or some lonely shelf for months or years. Your taste buds will confirm that what you have is the freshest and most potent seasoning available, short of going to your Grandma’s house.
Stale and bland food doesn’t make any more sense than carrying a dull pocket knife or walking around with your shoelaces untied. I think we can all agree that:
Life’s too Short for Flavorless Food!
