The Oregano Herb is known to the world as an Italian seasoning. However, it is a plant and culinary ingredient of the Mediterranean Basin, which includes Lebanon.

Unlike most similar ingredients, the Oregano Herb diffuses its aroma more intensely when its leafs are dried, hence its importance as a culinary herb.

It is used to flavor salads, meat and fish sauces, roasted food, tomato sauces, and certain breads, like the Olive & Cheese Bread.
