  • Somewhere between bravery, courage and carelessness, Oregano distils its strength and its fearless character. 
  • If Oregano could speak, it would probably say something like "OK, stop that now, I'll do it myself!" 
    The Oregano type is little likely to shilly-shally, should it finish up things itself. 
    Chattering is banned from its vocabulary. It only thinks of doing. No talks, just do's.
  • Ready to stick a pizza into the oven? 
    Just a sec. Let's jazz it up !
2 or 3 spoonfuls of mascarpone with one drop of Peppermint and one of Oregano. Scatter nuts of this mixture over your pizza before cooking.
Nothing is impossible for a willing heart! And to oregano, nothing seems inaccessible! It will always continue, always fight, he never falters and will reach the top as well as its set goals.
Its name comes from the Greek "He who loves the mountains." And indeed, it grows freely in altitude.
Sustainable, it lives several years, although winter may be too stringent for it sometimes... Indeed, growing on a mountain is already taking up a challenge for Oregano. It comes from a botanical family accustomed to the sun (Lamiaceae, such as Basils, Patchouli and other Thymes). It needs direct sunlight to survive .
Moreover, the more sun it absorbs, the more essential oil it gives. The lower up in the mountains it grows, the more powerful its spicy aroma is, its essential oil contains more than thymol and carvacrol, powerful dermocaustic components that microbes do not like, but that charm taste buds.
Warm blood flows in the veins of Oregano. And the stems are red. Square also, well angulated and they do not pretend to be particularly sweet at all . The panicles of its tiny pink flowers look like little balls. It does not let anything scatter around and about. Its leaves are small and shortly lanceolate. Their pubescence and colour are relatively variable , depending on the subspecies.
Brings courage.
Makes you rash, even reckless.
Helps you to be merciless.
Confers strong-will.
Conquering and competitive.
Allows you to go beyond your limits, to face problems.
Helps those who refuse to age; oregano doesn’t conceive mortality.
