I am Origanum vulgare, but you can just call me Oregano.

Borage?

No, not borage.

I was harvested a couple months ago, just as I was starting to bud up. I'm dry now, and will be used in food as well as for medicine.

pot? :)

Oh my, this is such fun!

No Julia, not nettles.
Nor am I Sage Aelwyn.
And Annie, no, not pot.

Here're more clues- my volatile oils are ridiculously popular these days, with folks making all sorts of health and healing claims. Forget those isolates oils and enjoy me Whole, in tea, in foods ... on pizza.

Basil?

I *knew* Basil would be next! Why does Basil get first billing all the time? No, I am *not* Basil (and I'm not taking it personal ... or would that be plantal?).
