From Wikipedia:

Oregano Origanum vulgare is a species of flowering plant in the mint family Lamiaceae. It was native to the Mediterranean region, but widely naturalised elsewhere in the temperate Northern Hemisphere.

Oregano is a woody perennial plant, growing 20–80 cm (8–31 in) tall, with opposite leaves 1–4 cm  long. The flowers are purple, 3–4 mm long, produced in erect spikes in summer. It is sometimes called wild marjoram, and its close relative, O. majorana, is known as sweet marjoram. Both are widely used as culinary herbs, especially in Turkish, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, and French cuisine. Oregano is also an ornamental plant, with numerous cultivars bred for varying leaf colour, flower colour and habit.

Indications. Fungal, bacterial, and parasitic infections.

Origanum vulgare has potent antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. The composition of the dried leaves of Origanum vulgare (excluding the essential oil component) includes a large amount of triterpene phenolic acids including rosmarinic, ursolic, oleanolic, caffeic, and lithospermic,1,2 with unique components known as origanol A and origanol B),3 which have demonstrated in vitro and in vivo anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.4, 5 Other bioactive secondary metabolites with prominent effects include ?-caryophyllene oxide,6 ?-sitosterol and flavonoids: eriocitrin, apigenin, luteolin, chrysoeriol, diosmetin, quercetin, and eriodictyol.7,8

Major active components of Origanum vulgare are phenolic monoterpenes, which constitute approximately 90% of the total composition of Origanum vulgare essential oil. Carvacrol is considered the predominant compound, followed by thymol (an isomer of carvacrol), p-cymene, and ?-terpinene.9
