Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a perennial herb from the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is native to the Mediterranean region but has naturalized in other parts of the temperate Northern Hemisphere. The plant typically grows 20–80 cm tall and features opposite leaves that are 1–4 cm long. Oregano's flowers range in color from white to pink or light purple and bloom in erect spikes during summer.

Culinary-wise, oregano is renowned for its earthy, warm, and slightly bitter taste, which is more intense when dried. It's a staple in Italian cuisine and is used extensively in Mediterranean and Latin American dishes. Its flavor profile varies based on climate, season, and soil composition.

Oregano also has a history of use in folk medicine, particularly its essential oil extracted from the leaves. However, it's important to note that while oregano or its oil is used as a dietary supplement, there is no clinical evidence to indicate that it has any significant effect on human health.
