Oregano

Origanum vulgare
Also called "anchovy grass" or "acciughero" is often used to flavour anchovies. Oregano is one of the most used aromatic herbs in Mediterranean cooking, by virtue of its intense and stimulating smell. One can use it in numerous preparations with meat or fish, in salads and on pizzas. Up until ancient times, Oregano was used medicinally due to its multiple curative properties: antispasmodic, antalgico, antiseptic, analgesic, expectorant, stomachic and tonic, aids digestion, subdues intestinal pain and meteorism and is also an excellent soother for sore throats and coughs with expectorant properties. Oregano is also a good repellant against ants in the home: sprinkle just enough dried Oregano in the areas where ants are present and repeat if necessary.
