My childhood memories involved drinking the juice of this herbal plant, oregano. My mom said that it is very effective in treating colds. Now that I have my own family, I make it a point to plant oregano. I have been using it to treat my kids for colds and of course I also use it for myself. It’s a bit hard to harvest this though as the smell of the plant tends to stick on the finger, good thing I have my tailored sportsman gloves with me, I use it to harvest my oregano. I also love to smell the oregano in the morning as the smell is very calming.
