Savory, satureja thymbra

Savory is a little known species and confused sometimes with Thyme and others with Oregano. Well, that’s because its smell is something in between, but a whole species of its own, given away by its unique flowers that have nothing to do with the other species.

One of the early flowering plants in spring, it booms the landscape with domes of its wonderful purple little furry ball flowers stacked on top of each other on its stalks.

Being in the family of the carvacrol plants, like Thyme and Oregano, it is also a strong anti-fungal, anti-bacterial antibiotic but with more specific targeting for some cases. A well read therapist can advise you how to use it properly.
