Discover the amazing healing power of oregano
http://www.naturalnews.com/042754_oregano_healing_power_antioxidant...
"(NaturalNews) Seductively aromatic and bountiful in flavor, oregano is one of the most commonly used herbs in the world. But beyond the rich zest it adds to food, oregano is also a nutritional and medicinal powerhouse, regarded by many as one of nature's perfect antibiotics. In fact, this amazing herb is loaded with so many antioxidants, vitamins and other beneficial compounds that it would be foolish not to consume it regularly for good health.

"Many people in the natural health community are already aware of oil of oregano, which, like its name implies, is the oil derived from oregano. Particularly when harvested from wild varieties of oregano, this oil has been shown to be a powerful antibiotic, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiviral, antihistamine and yeast-inhibiting medicine unlike anything ever concocted in a pharmaceutical laboratory. And yet this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of oregano."

I have a dwarf variety from Greece that doesn't get leggy and wild looking. It stays tightly clumped, easy to control, delightful flavor. It is our favorite herb from the garden.

Ah, but the taste of oregano oil is worse than cod liver oil! Surprisingly, the leaves are just the opposite, sprinkled on all sorts of things. I think I'll stick with my preferred oil--olive.

I have never tasted oregano oil, only the leaves from my garden. I trust your assessment and will not purchase it. Thanks Randall.  

Joan,

I just discovered your post.  Thank you for posting the interesting information!

Oregano is also a favorite for me.  I grew Greek oregano this year.

It was a favorite for honeybees.  They foraged the flowers for months. 

My plants grew too big for their chosen location.  They weren't gigantic.  I had the plants too close together.  This fall, I moved them to locations in the little orchard, as groundcover  in the areas around young fruit trees.  I want to see if they have other benefits, such as repelling rodents from chewing bark.  Oregano should have full sun.  These trees are still too small to significantly shade the oregano.

Next year I want to plant much more oregano, especially for honeybees.  Also learn more about ways to incorporate it into my cooking.
