"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."
