about oregano greek

Compared to other varieties of oregano, there really is nothing remarkable about Greek oregano from an ornamental viewpoint. It simply has hairy dark green leaves with small white flowers. But despite its aesthetic shortcomings this Mediterranean native may have, it compensates for in the kitchen. While there are many varieties of oregano, Greek oregano is considered the “true oregano” and is typically the oregano that graces the standard supermarket spice rack. And, if you are curious about Greek oregano uses, it is savored for its strong aroma and spicy intense flavor and is prominently used in Greek, Italian, or Spanish cuisine in homemade pizzas, tomato sauces, soups, and more.

in the records

The name comes from the Greek words oros, for “mountain,” and ganos, for “joy” meaning “ joy of the mountains”. The Ancient Greeks believed that if you anoint yourself with Oregano oil you will dream about your future spouse.
