I am sorry if this has been discussed. I wasn't able to find anything in my search. I have a terrible sinus infection and was told oil of oregano is good for that. I can't find conclusive information if it is safe to take internally while nursing. Does anyone know if it's safe while nursing? If so, how is it best taken while nursing? Thanks!

I've taken it a couple of times when I had a virus I couldn't shake. However, I usually stick to using it externally while pregnant or breastfeeding. When I have taken it internally, I've just taken a drop or two on my tongue, followed by a glass of water or juice. Externally, I usually dilute it 1:1 with olive oil.
