I heard the antibiotic property of origano oil.  But how should I consume it?  For what problems should I consume it?

Yes if it is the oreganum compactum.

It is strong and powerful, so has to be kept for cases when other oils don't work.
Not under 15 and pregnant women.
Avoid topical use and only diluted in a neutral oil for small surfaces.
It is often put in capsule because it is so strong in the mouth. Dilute it in a vegetable neutral oil like olive or coconut.

It is the widest spectrum antibiotic oil, and also works on virus, fungi like candida and parasites.

I've just been putting drops in water on a spoon. What is the benefit of using veggie oil instead?

I take it if I feel a sore throat starting and it seems to stop the illness before it takes hold. Can you suggest alternatives for this if you feel Oil of Oregano should be saved for the worst cases?

I have also used water until l thought "Essential oils are oils!" So oils just mix well together and the irritation potential of the E.O. is dampenned. For whatever use for aereal sphere, the oil will also make the EO stick better in the throat l think.

For sorethroats, I often use tea-tree or niaouli. Also close to oregano, thyme, thujanol type. Adding some mint will cool the throat too.

Also think about an easy way: gargle and clean your throat well after eating! Either with a thyme infusion or just warm water, eventually with salt in it. You can add a teaspoon of oxygenated water and it cleans well. Salt and oxygen and heat!
