The name oregano comes from two Greek words meaning "mountain finery". A tablet discovered in the Mycenaean palace of Pylos reveals that, during the 13Ith century BC, oregano-scented oil offerings were made to divinities and their priests. It was used in infusions, unctions and plasters to heal numerous ailments. Dioscorides prescribed it to persons with stomach ailments and with "acidic and unpleasant belches". It had a special place in Roman cuisine, in which it was reputed to facilitate digestion. In popular medicine, oregano leaves were used to prepare an anti-rheumatism herbal tea. The dried and chopped leaves were used as snuff, for freeing blocked noses and to create plasters for stiff necks.
