VERY STRONG stuff!
This brand has alcohol in it, and when you combine that with the pungent taste and smell of oregano oil, you have quite a potent combination! I put a dropperful on my tongue and be sure I have a full glass of water in my other hand ready! Then I gargle it with the water before swallowing it. In addition to its anti-viral, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties, the extremely strong flavor will immediately cure any sore throat you may have. There may not be an FDA/officially mandated cure for the common cold, but for me this is as close as youre gonna get! Works every time!
