Origanum comune

An ancient plant which never ceases to surprise


Oregano is a spontaneous aromatic plant with remarkable properties, already known in ancient times not only for its use in cooking.
Typical plant of the southern areas, its name means “Delizia del Monte“ literally «Delight of the Mount» (from the Greek oros and ganos).
Oregano is a shrub belonging to the Lamiaceae family, it has oval or lanceolate leaves, edible both fresh and dried. It grows spontaneously in hilly and mountainous areas and it has wonderful pink flowers.



For the Greeks, Oregano was a symbol of peace and happiness. It was tradition to adorn the bride and the groom with Oregano on their wedding day.

It is therefore always advisable to ask the suggestion of a professional.
