The word “oregano” comes from Greek and roughly translates as “joy of mountains”. Oregano was popular in ancient Greece and Egypt, where it was used with vegetables, wine, meat and fish. Oregano originated in the hilly regions of Mediterranean, but it was brought to the West very early in the history and nowadays it can be found across entire North America. Oregano is widespread in Europe and Mediterranean where it grows all over the place, but it has to be cultivated in America and France.
