My understanding is that the oil is more potent. Are you using this as an anti-fugal, anti-biotic? A good place to go to ask for more info on this is a website called knowthecause.com. They have really good forumes there too.
I believe moonsing is correct.oil of oregano is more potent, and I know offhand the leaf oil tastes HORRIBLE. ( yes, much worse than the oil of oregano)
No, they don't have the same benefits, the more concentration the better and more expensive too.
