Home / Oregano


Oregano belongs to the Labiatae family like spearmint and rosemary; it is native to Mediterranean countries. It grows wild in dry places, even on mountains. It is cultivated as an aromatic plant and for therapeutic use. It is harvested two or three times a year during summer. The most common varieties – the Origanum vulgare and Origanum onites – are widespread in Turkey.
