Oregano Research Paper

Satisfactory Essays
Oregano was first used by the Greeks. It comes from ancient folk lore of the Greek Gods and Goddesses. The word “oregano” means “joy of the mountains” in Greek so they had to give it a story. It was adopted by the Romans because they liked the flavor and the ease of cultivation which it possessed. The Romans then spread the love of the herb throughout all of Europe and Northern Africa. It was not until the Middle Ages that oregano was more commonly used for medicinal purposes.
