Oregano Origanum Vulgare

size: 15ml

 

For hundreds of years, Oregano has been known as one of the most potent and beneficial essential oils. Oregano can be found in cookbooks and cabinets around the world, as itsversatile flavour complements a variety of cuisines. The essential oil is extracted from the fragrant leaves of the plant. A primary chemical component of Oregano is carvacol, a phenol, which makes it one of the most multifaceted and powerful essential oils in the world. In case of skin contact, Oregano should be diluted with a carrier oil.

Primary Benefits

  • A versatile flavouring component widely used across the world in savoury dishes, commonly used as a dry herb.
  • Incredibly pungent fragrance and flavour when used in cooking, allowing the user to make a little go a long way in each dish.
  • Spicy and herbaceous flavour ideal for soups, salads and seasoning any savoury dish.

Cooking with Oregano

Essential oils are very potent compared to dry seasonings, spices, or other flavouring agents, so even the tiniest amount can add a serious blast of flavour to your dish. When using Oregano in cooking, it is best to use the toothpick method – dip the tip of a clean toothpick into the essential oil bottle and stir the toothpick into your ingredients. After you’ve stirred the toothpick around in the dish, do a taste test to see if additional oil should be added.

Uses

  • Replace one tablespoon of dry oregano with one drop of Oregano oil in Italian dishes
  • Put one drop in place of dried oregano in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast.
