Origanum Vulgare

Its name comes from the ancient Greek word “origanon”, that comes from the word “oros” and ancient Greek version of the verb “to love”, because of the presence of the plant in heights. In ancient Greece oregano was used as a seasoning in cooking, and it was also used for its numerous therapeutical properties.
