    Since Oregano was originally grown in Greece, it was first used by the Greeks. They believed that this herb was created by the Goddess Aphrodite. She wanted it to be a symbol of joy growing in her garden. The word “Oregano” comes from the Greek words oros, for “mountain,” and ganos, for “joy” meaning “ joy of the mountains”.

    Oregano has become a replacement crop in Turkey to move from Tobacco farms to Organic Oregano farms. These farms grow oregano rurally in the Aegean Region. They are harvested by hand, and dried naturally. The farms have to contribute to economic prosperity and social well-being, while protecting natural resources such as soil, water and biodiversity.

    Fun Fact: Oregano was not widely used in North America until after the Second World War. Soldiers discovered the herb during the Italian Campaign and brought it back home.

  • Directions

    For making Oregano Tea, use 2 teaspoons with 1 cup of hot water. Steep for 2 - 4 minutes.

  • Uses

    - Make your own Italian Vinaigrette. Combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried Oregano, minced Garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
    - Make your own pizza sauce. A sauce for homemade pizza can be made using tomato paste, tomato sauce, dried Oregano, Garlic powder, Onion powder, salt, and pepper.
    - Make your own infused honey. Steep Oregano in some honey for a flavourful addition to breads, sauces, and more.
    - Oregano can be a potential ally for folks struggling with athlete’s foot. Simply steep Oregano in vinegar for a few weeks and then strain. Apply the strained infusion directly to the affected areas for some natural relief.
    - Oregano has traditionally been used to help relieve headaches. Try making tea and sweetening with the Oregano honey.
    - Oregano makes a great addition to homemade cleaning products. Use Oregano steeped vinegar to clean countertops and more. Make a scouring powder with Oregano to clean tubs, showers, and toilets.
    - This is a match made in heaven. Add Oregano to a pot of home-cooked beans in the last fifteen minutes or so of cooking. Your entire pot will be infused with that earthy Oregano flavour.
