Its name is derived from the Greek words oros (mountain) and ganos (joy) since not only was it a symbol of happiness, but it made the hillsides on which it grew look beautiful.

• It is an excellent source of vitamin K and a very good source of manganese. It is also a good source of iron, dietary fiber, and calcium. • It includes carbohydrates, sugar, soluble and insoluble fiber, sodium, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids and more. • The volatile oils in this spice include thymol and carvacrol, both of which have been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria. • It has a strong anti-oxidant, anti-flammatory, antiseptic, antidiarrheal and antiviral capacity to mention just a few of its health benefits.
