Oregano is just like wild thyme, and it is an aromatic plant that contains highly effective antiseptic, anti-toxin, anti-spasmodic, pain-relieving, digestive, expectorant, soothing, blood pressure-reducing, and laxative substances. Oregano thyme can be recognized in nature by its stem that branches at angles, its reddish color, and its strong and distinctive aromatic smell. Oregano also grows strongly in dry, gravelly land exposed to the sun, and it can be found on the coasts and mountains. There is true oregano and there is false oregano. Therefore, you must check the Latin name when purchasing oregano.


General info

Belonging to the mint family, or Lamiaceae, oregano is a woody perennial plant. It’s a robust herb with a peppery bite and a minty aroma. In Greek, the word oregano means “joy of the mountain.”

The perennial herb produces long trailing stems that look pretty spilling over a container or as a bright green leafy ground cover, especially along a path. White flowers bloom in late summer.

Oregano oil is a powerful, plant-derived essential oil with antibiotic-like properties — antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal — when it comes to treating or preventing various infections. It contains many properties. Oregano oil benefits extend beyond just controlling infections. Common examples of conditions that oregano oil can help manage include Athlete’s foot or toenail fungus

Use fresh oregano leaves in tomato sauces, soups and stews. Sprinkle dried oregano on top of pizzas and add to tomato sauces and salads. Dried oregano leaves have a stronger flavor than fresh leaves.


Reduce nervous system problems:

Oregano and its oil may help solve nervous system problems by raising dopamine levels, thus improving mood and enhancing feelings of psychological comfort. This is due to its content of carvacrol, and you can benefit from these effects by eating it regularly in small quantities.

Reducing respiratory problems:

Oregano contains carvacrol and rosmarinic acid, both of which are natural decongestants and antihistamines. This explains the role of eating oregano in alleviating respiratory problems by improving lung functions, and organic oregano oil is a good choice to benefit from its benefits.

Improves digestion: Oregano contains a good amount of fiber that enhances the functioning of the digestive system, by facilitating bowel movement, preventing constipation, and increasing the absorption of nutrients from food.

Relieve problems of:

  • indigestion,
  • acidity
  • ,heartburn
  • Works to expel gases.

 May improve heart health: Taking oregano extract may help improve heart health by regulating blood pressure and lowering blood fat levels.

Oregano is an insect repellent: Oregano can be used as one of the options that helps repel insects.

Planting and growth

Grow oregano in free-draining soil or compost in a sunny, sheltered spot. Harvest the leaves as and when needed, cutting the plant back completely every so often to encourage a fresh flush of foliage. If growing in pots, repot every couple of years in fresh compost. Prevent water-logging in winter by adding grit to the planting hole.

Oregano loves the sun, so ensure that your placement has full sun for strong flavor. Offer partial shade if growing in hot climates.

Plant anytime in the spring, once you’re well past the chance of frost. Some folks plant later in the season for assured warm weather. The soil should be around 70ºF (21º Celsius degree)

For a head start, plant the seeds/cuttings 6 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost. (See local frost dates.)

Oregano can easily be started from seeds, though you can also use cuttings from an established plant.

Before planting, mix in several inches of organic matter, such as compost. If you’re growing in containers, use a quality potting mix.

Plant 8 to 10 inches apart. The plants will grow 1 to 2 feet tall and spread about 18 inches.

  • Harvest the leaves with sharp shears as you need them, once the plant is several inches tall. This will encourage new growth. Just don’t harvest more than one-third of the plant at a time.
  • The most flavor-filled leaves are found in mid-summer before the flowers bloom.
  • You can freeze the leaves to use during the winter. Oregano leaves stored well and are easily dried. Keep them in an airtight container once dried.
