Oregano or wild marjoram is a sweet-smelling herb with a rich flavour and full aroma.
It is a perennial and evergreen plant. The leaves are small, with a pointed tip and velvety. The leaves dry very well.
This organo comes from a Greek farmer who collected the herb selectively and picked the flowering tops and leaves by hand. The Greek organo is considered the best organo because of its strong aroma and its high content of carvacrol (a chemical compound found in the essential oils of oregano among others).
Oregano works against diarrhoea, stimulates digestion and expels nausea, is anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, expectorant, works against chronic rheumatism and increases the immune system because of its many antioxidants.
Packaging of 15 gr in glass jar.
How to use? In the kitchen as a basic herb in Italian and Greek dishes, in salads or as a strong tea to drink as a cough syrup. Put 2 to 3 teaspoons in a teapot with almost boiling water and let it brew for 10 minutes. Add honey and/or lemon to taste.
Storage tip: keep dry and dark
