Oregano has been known since ancient times and symbolizes joy and happiness. This is a low shrub that grows almost everywhere in Greece. It is considered to have antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory action, while helping in disorders of the respiratory and digestive systems. It can be used either in cooking, giving flavor and aroma.
