History of Oregano
A revered herb for centuries, oregano has been appreciated even as far back as ancient Greece, when Hippocrates attested to its properties. The Greeks also embraced oregano as a key culinary ingredient, along with many other cultures, including the Turks, Spaniards, and, perhaps most notably, Italians, who made the herb world famous as a crucial component of pizza. Oregano simply smells wonderful, with a potent aroma that is both rejuvenating and relaxing.
