I have taken Oregano Oil at times, but I think Buhner's protocol will do more for you if you have Lyme D..
Oregano DOES kill BAD bacteria. BUT, HOW MUCH do you need. IF you take it by drops, not in a capsule, just one drop in a glass of water or juice burns your mouth something fierce, at least it does mine.
I quit it last summer with some other supplements, when I got into trouble taking too many different things. I just recently just started taking it again, 2 drops a day.
Taking Oregano oil did terrible damage to my stomach. It took months of meds and healing agents for my lining to heal. Be careful!

I think it is quite a potent supplement, with a fairly wide range of action against various microbes. Not sure how specific is it for spirochetes, but I think some members here have said it helped.
My health improved to some degree, but not anywhere near what I would have liked, when I took it. And I do think it was hard on my stomach also, so I really agree with Anneke that it is important to be careful.
And you may need to supplement with probiotics because it can affect friendly flora in addition to unfriendly flora, if you do decide to take it.
I don't think it is strong enough to kill lyme entirely either. I have been taking it quite for a couple of years now, but mostly to control yeast. I use gelatin capsules and fill them with the drops.

It helps when you have a sore throat to gargle it. It also helps just putting ONE drop in a glass of juice/water, when you swallow it for the sore throat also.
I take ONE drop of the essential oil, organic, two times a day, in my glass of water/juice to wash down my herbs.
MAYBe that is good, maybe it is not. I don't do it all the time. Been only about two weeks now. I try to keep changing SOME things up.
I went back up to 1/2 of my maximum regimen a couple of weeks ago also, and am feeling better again. SO THAT is where I will stay for awhile.
I LIKE feeling better.
My Ostomy nurse's assistant asked my WHY I didn't take a WHOLE dropper full of the Essential Oils Oregano IF it kills the Spirochetes. SEE WHAT the MAINSTREAM people believe or KNOW? I told her, WHY, do you want to KILL ME? ONE DROP is enough!
