Habitat: Oregano is a small perennial herb that is native to Europe and the Mediterranean region where it grows on dry, sunny slopes and along roadsides. The creeping stems of Oregano grow into a wide mat, while the flower stalks are upright, growing to 24 inches tall. The small leaves are slightly furry and grey-green in color. Flower clusters, which appear from July to September, are light purple, pink or white.
Aroma: herbaceous, sharp
Affinities: Diluted Oregano Oil relieves cough and cold symptoms when inhaled, disinfects surfaces when used as a cleaning agent, and calms inflammation and itchiness when used in moisturizers and shampoos. Due to its antibacterial properties, it was used to not only preserve food but also to treat wounds and skin impurities.
Folklore: The name Oregano is derived from the Ancient Greek terms “oros” and “ganos.” Together, they mean “joy of the mountains.” Oregano has been used for medicinal purposes since the time of Greek physicians Hippocrates and Maimonides, who prescribed it to their patients for their respiratory and digestive ailments.
Words of wisdom: Oregano Essential Oil is contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use caution when using oils with children and pets. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children, the elderly, during pregnancy, or if you have medical issues or are taking medications.
