Many Mediterranean cuisines are known for their use of dried oregano in their cooking. Two cultures that rely on this herb extensively are the Greeks and the Turks. The Italians, however, are probably the most well-known in America for their culinary use of the dried variety. Most pizzas and pasta sauces rely on it as a main flavoring component. In these cultures it has also been used for hundreds of years as a traditional medicine. Although, the dried herb itself provides important benefits, the oil concentrates both the flavor and health benefits. A tiny amount can be incredibly potent and can deliver healthful results.
