Oregano Oil Wellness shots seem to be all the rage these days. However, not all are created equally. The only remedies I actually think work are the ones with high-quality, potent combinations using oregano oil. Oregano oil and elderberry are two of my favorite go-to remedies when I’m sick.
This oregano oil, turmeric, and ginger wellness shots are best with a citrus base. I LOVE grapefruit juice or orange/tangerine juice. But that’s just me, everybody has different preferences. I’d love to hear your favorite combinations as well. Feel free to comment below and share the wellness shot combinations you swear by. This recipe is sponsored by Vuori Clothing.

They are the best lounge pant ever and are very flattering which is a win-win when it comes to loungewear!Jump to Recipe
Oregano oil is my wellness shot favorite ingredient because it acts as a natural antibiotic and is a powerful antioxidant.
One older test-tube study compared the antioxidant content of 39 commonly used herbs and found that oregano had the highest concentration of antioxidants. Gram per gram, oregano also has 42 times the antioxidant level of apples and 4 times that of blueberries. This is thought to be mostly due to its rosmarinic acid content.
Because oregano oil extract is very concentrated, you need much less oregano oil to reap the same antioxidant benefits as you would from fresh oregano.
Tumeric, ginger, citrus, and black pepper also have very immune system boosting qualities. Citrus has tons of vitamin C which are great for the common cold. Black pepper is famous in the Ayurvedic community known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Interestingly, by coupling black pepper with turmeric you are enhancing the health effects of their medicinal properties as black pepper helps with the absorption of the turmeric. Or so they say.
Liquid minerals are a great addition to his shot as well. Try a dropper of Eidon immune support.
