Oregano

Oregano has been recognized for its medicinal and aromatic properties since ancient times. Its name comes from the Greek words oros (mountain) and ganos (joy). Oregano has been one of the main ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine and part of the lifestyle for centuries. Newlyweds in ancient Greece and Rome were crowned with a laurel of oregano. It is a rich source of Vitamin K and antioxidants and contains fiber, iron, manganese, vitamin E, iron, calcium, omega fatty acids and manganese. It has also shown powerful antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. No one can imagine a proper Greek salad without a generous amount of the dried herb sprinkled on top. And no one should have it without Oliveology’s aromatic and flavoursome oregano.
