The oregano capsules are 'cut' with olive oil. I took them on an empty stomach when I had the stomach flu and the most that it does is make you burp oregano. I wouldn't recommend taking the steam-distilled pure oil of oregano internally at all. I have a bottle of pure steam-distilled oregano and it will burn the skin if not diluted. I use it to put a few drops in my ichthammol ointment to make an antibacterial drawing salve. I've made the mistake of being overgenerous and can attest that it will burn the skin if you use too much. You can buy oregano oil already diluted with olive oil and ready to use.
