A Little Background

It is a proud member of the mint family. Italian cuisine favors oregano when it comes to adding more flavor to their delicious dishes. Oregano leaves are abundant with over 40 medicinal compounds.

A huge number of these compounds are antioxidants which serve to protect one’s body from free radicals.

Oregano is also a fabulous natural antiseptic, and that means in can hinder the growth of microorganisms which are harmful to your body in one way or another.

Oregano is also great for soothing and even healing a sore throat, as well as any other infections and sinus problems.
