A classic flavor in Italian and Mediterranean cooking, Oregano is also a powerful healing herb. It is believed to have antibacterial, antiviral, and immune boosting properties in addition to being rich in micronutrients. Bring some mountain joy into your kitchen with this wholesome spice.
Tip: Next time you feel yourself fighting off a cold, make a strong cup of Oregano tea. Pour a cup of boiling water over a teaspoon of the spice, let steep for five to ten minutes, and strain. Lemon may be added for flavor and vitamin C.
