The term "oregano" refers more to its pizza-like feel than to a specific processing plant. Even licensed botanists take issue roughly speaking which herbs may be named origanum. The oregano bought commercially, whether at a baby's room or a mart store, is furthermost plausible feral wild marjoram. This herbaceous plant routinely has cherry flowers - the flowers of actual Greek or Turkish origanum vulgare are in the main light - and marjoram's odor is tender and fragrant compared beside Greek oregano's spicy, oleoresin scent.
To complicate the issue, all marjorams are oreganos - the variety given name for some is herb - but all oreganos are not marjorams. In extra there are Italian oregano, which is pleasant marjoram, and pot marjoram, which is Cretan winter sweet. Mexican marjoram is not wild marjoram at all, it is a verbena, but it smells like-minded pot marjoram because of the beingness of one basic oil - carvacrol - that gives marjoram its pungent, nigh tar-like smell.

In the orbit of magic, oregano, burnt as incense or drugged as a tea, is accepted to aid one antecede and forget a previous individual.
