Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 

Also known as Oregano and Wild Marjoram, its name is from the Greek ‘joy of the mountains’ and is a common species from the mint family. It is native to the Mediterranean basin and Asia. A perennial herb, it grows from 20–80 cm tall, with leaves of up to 4 cm, and has purple, spikey flowers. The ancient Egyptians used it in food preservation, and Hippocrates used it in his medical practice. Oregano has been a popular culinary herb in Europe since time immemorial, and became popular in North America after WWII when returning soldiers posted to Italy brought back a taste for pizza.
