Wild oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a herb that is rich in the phenolic compound carvacrol and is characterised by a strong, bitter taste producing a slightly burning sensation in the mouth. The essential oil of the varieties of wild oregano mainly consists of carvacrol, followed by its precursors p-cymene en gamma-terpinene. Wild oregano oil is standardised at min. 70% carvacrol and max. 0.5% thymol. For many applications, thymol is less effective than carvacrol and, in contrast with carvacrol, can be irritating to the skin.
