Oregano Spanish Albania
Spanish oregano is a small shrub with narrow, aromatic, gray-green leaves. It bears white to pink tubular flowers grouped in inflorescence clusters. Flowering oregano sprigs are harvested from May to August. When distilled, they produce an agrestic, phenolic, and spicy essential oil. Spanish oregano differs in composition from other species. The carvacrol content – the molecule responsible for oregano’s characteristic warm, spicy aroma – is much higher in the Spanish plant. People apply Spanish origanum oil directly to the skin for burns and to prevent and treat infections. In foods and beverages, Spanish origanum oil is used as a flavoring. In manufacturing, it is used as a fragrance in soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes.
