Oregano is a perennial member of the mint family often grown as an annual garden herb. Because it is closely related to marjoram, it is often referred to as sweet marjoram or wild marjoram, which, not surprisingly, can generate confusion. Gently bruising the fresh leaf or rubbing the dried herb between your fingers will resolve all doubt as to the plant’s identity.

With a savory, somewhat peppery and pungent flavor and aroma, oregano is a traditional seasoning used in Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Indian and Moroccan cuisines.

Oregano, also known as wild marjoram, is a perennial in the mint family that is native to the Mediterranean region. Although its notoriety as the “pizza herb” in the US didn’t catch until World War II soldiers returned home from southern Italy, they were more likely to encounter the herb in the local cuisine as seasoning for grilled or roasted meats and vegetables.

Owing to high concentrations of the antimicrobial agents, thymol and carvacrol, oregano also has a long history of use as a topical antiseptic. In fact, Hippocrates, the Greek physician also known as the Father of Medicine, endorsed the use of oregano for this purpose.
