In this section of our vegetable seeds online catalog, you will find different varieties of seeds of one of the most aromatic and favorite spices, especially suitable for pizza and pasta, namely Oregano. With its aromatic fragrance and light taste, the spice has rightly earned a place of honor in the culinary world. It is surprising that apart from the kitchen, oregano is widely used in medicine, cosmetics, and even perfumery. Since ancient times, they were familiar with the many beneficial uses of aromatic spice and paid it great respect.

One of the names by which oregano is widely known is the name "oregano", which comes from Greek and literally translates as "mountain joy".

Oregano is a herbaceous crop that belongs to the Oregano family. It is a small shrub that reaches a height of no more than 80 cm. The characteristic of aromatic grass is that it forms a tofu of about 100 stems, which branch at the top and form an inflorescence that takes an umbrella-like shape. The stems are covered with oval leaves, in gray-brownish colors, and the plant flourishes from the beginning of June to the end of August, in pink-violet shades.

Did you know that oregano has an antibacterial effect and is called "the scourge of bacteria"?

The applications of aromatic spice are numerous. The use of oregano is particularly popular in the kitchen, more specifically in the Mediterranean. Its combinations with pizza, spaghetti, cheese, and yellow cheese are world-famous and loved. In addition to its place of honor in the kitchen, oregano has also earned dividends in folk medicine. One of the reasons for this is its useful content. In its composition, it has important vitamins A and C, mineral salts, essential oil, as well as a special organic compound that makes the spice antibacterial. The compound is called carvacrol and it has been scientifically proven that it has the property of suppressing the development of bacteria, which is where one of the names of oregano comes from - "the scourge of bacteria".

Oregano - the herb seeds of love and magic

As we mentioned at the beginning, oregano was highly revered even in Antiquity. In fact, the first written records of the aromatic herb link it directly to Ancient Greece. The legends associated with her are numerous. One of the most interesting is the relationship with love. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that spice had magical powers and could have a beneficial effect on love relationships. For this purpose, garlands of oregano were woven and placed on the heads of the bride and groom. They are also believed to have scented the bedrooms and baths of the young couple to promote happiness and good personal relationships.

Oregano's connection to love doesn't end there. According to legends, it was the goddess of love Aphrodite who covered the slopes of Olympus with the enchanted herb.

The ancient philosopher Aristotle explored the healing properties of oregano, writing in his writings that wild goats sought out the aromatic herb to heal their wounds. It is believed that people in Antiquity learned about the healing powers of the herb from there.

In addition, we can go back to the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite, who is believed to have cured her son Aeneas with the aromatic plant.

You may not be aware, but oregano is one of the few aromatic herbs that both fresh and dried retain their characteristic qualities!

The aromatic grass is propagated from seeds, which are sown from the beginning of March to the end of April. You can sow the seeds outdoors, in the garden or in greenhouses. Oregano is also suitable for growing in pots or boxes on the balcony. It does not show great requirements for the soil and prefers sunny places. It is recommended to water the aromatic herb regularly but moderately and to nourish the soil with specialized fertilizers for herbs and spices.
