Oregano – An A to Z Challenge Post

O

O is for Oregano

Brought by the returning WW II soldiers from Italy, oregano comes in two varieties – the Mediterranean version being milder than its Mexican counterpart. It is almost inseparable from any Italian dishes, but should be used with caution when adding to foods, as it tends to overpower other herbs and spices.

Matches well with: lamb, mushrooms, paste, peppers, pizza, tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant

Healing properties: treats indigestion and heartburn, also known to have a beneficial effect on yeast infections. Its diluted oil (50 %) can be used to treat athletes foot if applied daily. Do not use oregano oil internally!

Magical properties: add energy to your life, used whenever you need a boost of joy, strength and vitality
