    Η βασίλισσα των μυρωδικών με χαρακτηριστικό άρωμα Ελλάδας και πλούσια αντιοξειδωτική και αντιμικροβιακή δράση. Η ονομασία ρίγανη προέρχεται από την αρχαία «ỏρίγανον» που προέρχεται από τα «ὄρος» και το ρήμα «γανοῦσθαι» (αγαπώ, θέλγω, απολαμβάνω), καθότι η ρίγανη προτιμά τα μεγαλύτερα υψόμετρα στα Μεσογειακά κλίματα. Στην Ελλάδα η ρίγανη μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί και ως ο βασιλιάς των μυρωδικών καθώς αποτελεί το πιο συχνό άρτυμα και χρησιμοποιείται στα περισσότερα φαγητά. Εκτός, όμως αυτής της χρήσης, σύγχρονες έρευνες δείχνουν ότι η ρίγανη και το ριγανέλαιο διαθέτουν ένα ευρύ φάσμα βιολογικών ιδιοτήτων όπως αντιμικροβιακή και αντιμυκητιακή καθώς και σημαντική αντιοξειδωτική δράση.
    Ιδανική για σαλάτες, πίτσες, ψητά, σάλτσες.
