The name comes from the Greek words ‘oros’ and ‘ganos’, which are words for mountain and joy – oregano literally means ‘joy of the mountain’. It was revered as a symbol of happiness, and it was an ancient tradition to crown brides and grooms with a laurel or oregano. Oregano oil has shown promise in preventing food-borne illnesses caused by pathogens such as listeria, salmonella, E. coli and Shigella dysenteria. Adding it to foods not only helps kill the bacteria, but may also alleviate food poisoning symptoms. An animal study from University of Arizona researchers also found that oregano oil can help kill norovirus which causes gastroenteritis.
