Its antibacterial properties have also been used to treat skin and gastrointestinal infections. Additionally, it has been used for menstrual conditions such as period pain. Like all herbs, oregano has several other names. It is also known as origanum, mountain mint, wild or winter marjoram, wintersweet and carvacrol.
