I have the nastiest cough right now and I tried some boiled oregano leaves too. Are all oregano leaves the same? Because I've seen other varities, like the small-leafed ones. (Ours have slightly hairy leaves and juicy stems.)

The oregano leaves directly loosen your phlegm when you squeeze the leaves after sanitizing to get the syrup up to 1 to 2 tablespoon and drink it. more effective than boiling it up to a lot of water. Oregano leaves, also can clear out your lungs if you have problem breathing because it helps to fight bacteria as known oregano leaves is also anti oxidant.
