Oregano, also called pot marjoram, is a member of the mint family naturally distributed throughout Europe and some parts of Asia. Greek oregano, also known as Italian oregano, is a subspecies designated botanically as Origanum vulgare subsp. Hirtum. It has a bolder, spicier flavor than its parent and, in contrast to most culinary herbs central to Italian cuisine, it blends well with fiery spices and foods enjoyed in southern Italy.

In the west, most people identity with Greek oregano as the classic “pizza herb.” However, the dried leaf is widely used in Middle Eastern, Philippine, Spanish and Latin American cuisines as seasoning for meats, vegetables and beans. In Turkey, the herb typically resides at the table next to the salt and pepper.

Background: Oregano grows wild in the mediterranean region of the world. It is prized for the delicious flavor it adds to food.

Description: Oregano is a perennial herb that grows approximately 3 feet tall. It has red stems, green leaves, and pink flowers. The herb is harvested when the flower is blooming during the summer.

Safety: Do not use oregano medicinally if you are pregnant. Oregano may cause skin irritation when used externally. Do not take the essential oil internally. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
