what else you should know

mexican oregano

Mexican oregano isn’t a “true” oregano member of the mint family, but belongs to the verbena group instead. In addition, although it shares similar aromatic and flavor qualities with oregano (Origanum vulgare), the herb has a flavor profile that is closer to rosemary with a hint of citrus.

Also known as scented matgrass and redbrush lippia, the botanical name for this plant is taken from the Latin words gravis and oleo, meaning "heavy" and "scented,” respectively. Mexican oregano is native to Central America and the American southwest, where it is used to lend flavor to bean dishes, soups, enchiladas and quesadillas, sometimes as a substitute for epazote.
