What is oregano?
Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a perennial plant belonging to the mint family, native to northern Europe. Its name is derived from the Greek “oros,” which means mountain, and “ganos,” which means joy.
A popular culinary herb, oregano is often used in Italian, Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Its warm, aromatic scent and slightly bitter flavor make it a great complement to tomato sauces, salad dressings and grilled fish, meat or vegetables. Oregano is popular in Italian-American dishes, especially pizza and pasta sauces.
Oregano’s history in traditional medicine dates back to Hippocrates, who recommended the herb for its antiseptic properties and for stomach and respiratory support. It was also used by ancient cultures to relieve sore muscles, skin irritations and toothaches.
