The scientific name is Oreganum Vulgare.
In Greece, the most widespread variety is Hirtum.
It is a native shrub in Mediterranean and Central Asia.
Oregano is collected between June – July, before and during the first stages of flowering, when the plant contains the largest amount of essential oil.
The content of essential oil ranges from 3-5% and in exceptional cases can reach 7%.
The main substances contained in the essential oil are carvacrol and thymol which are attributed to the strong biological action of oregano.
