Description

Origanum vulgare (Oregano or Marjoram) Bushy plant with purple stem, ovate green leaves and clusters of pink flowers and purple buds. Widely used as a culinary herb and in dental preparations because it contains thymol, valuable for its antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal actions. A red dye has been extracted from its flowering tops.
