In Praise of Oregano (and Thyme)

Rancho Gordo Oregano Indio
"There is something that fascinates me about the ecological chain that links soil moisture stress to plant tissues stress to stressed out humans. Let me put it in the most crassly anthropocentric and teleological terms: Oregano from Mexico and thyme from the Mediterranean can somehow keep us from getting sick when we get too stressed out. How? By being rich in the very aromatic oils that not only reduce stressing the plants but reduce our stress levels as well."

- Gary Paul Nabhan Desert Terroir: Exploring the Unique Flavors and Sundry Places of the Borderlands University of Texas Press 2012
