"I've suffered from sinus and allergy problems for years but then read how oil of oregano is a natural antihistamine. Since using oil of oregano in both capsule and oil form my allergy problems have pretty much disappeared and my sinuses are clear as can be and with absolutely no side effects. I find that this brand of oregano is very cost-effective and potent and highly recommend it. My son whom works outside has also found it helpful during hay fever season."
