Oregano

Herb

Oregano has been used for centuries for a variety of its health improving properties. It contains multiple antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It's been used to relieve coughs, reduce body odor, soothe digestive muscles, and lower blood pressure. Oregano is a strong antioxidant, with high levels of beneficial acids and flavonoids.

Oregano is also believed to have the following properties: antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, and stimulant. In large quantities, it may have a very strong sedative effect, so be cautious using in large quantity.

Growing oregano is easy in pots or containers. Use a good potting soil (one that's appropriate for vegetables, as some potting mixes contain chemicals that you wouldn't want to eat!). Mix in a little sand, and some well-rotted organic matter or compost. Leave 1" of space between the soil and the top of the container.

Start your plant indoors by placing your seeds on the surface of the soil, and misting the soil until damp. Put a layer of kitchen plastic wrap across the top of the pot or planter and place in a sunny location. Watch for the seeds to sprout within 10 days (normally). Immediately remove the plastic wrap. Keep your young oregano plant indoors until all danger of frost has passed. And keep the oregano planter in a sunny location, until you're ready to take it outdoors.

It's not wise to move your plant directly from your home to your patio. You'll likely scorch your plant, since it is not yet used to direct sunlight. Most gardeners move their plants outside in gradual steps. Starting with a shady location outside, then moving it (day by day) into a fuller sun position.
