Review 1 for Vitacost Oregano Oil - Standardized -- 1 fl oz (30 mL)
This product has a very strong aftertaste.

"I bought a bottle each of the oregano oil by Natural Factors and Vitacost. The taste differential is striking. NF tastes just like fresh oregano, whereas, the VC brand has a petroleum aftertaste. Not sure if that's the best way to describe the taste but you will know when you taste it. As for the effectiveness of this product, I have not taken it long enough to comment on it yet."
