Origin of Oregano oil

Oregano is a hardy, bushy perennial herb that grows up to 90cm (35 in) high, with an erect hairy stem, dark green oval leaves and a profusion of pink flowers clustered in heads at the top of the branches.

It is a common garden plant, favored by bees, with a strong aroma when the leaves are bruised.

Oregano is a herb with an ancient medical reputation, now-a-days it is used extensively in Mediterranean cooking and dental preparations.
