North American Herb & Spice was the first company to introduce edible oil of oregano to the North American market. We are the oregano experts! This is the result of extensive research and the personal experiences of the company’s founders. To be edible, this essential oil must be made only from wild, mountain-grown Mediterranean oregano, free of all chemicals and pesticides. It also must be emulsified in carrier oil such as extra virgin olive oil, which we use in our oil of oregano. The only oregano we use is the real, 100%-wild Mediterranean oregano, guaranteed to be handpicked in pristine and untarnished remote mountains. A conservation program was implemented to limit excessive picking, which preserves and protects the plants and land. Our oil is produced by old-fashioned steam distillation, using deep spring water also known for its high mineral content. No chemicals or solvents are used in the extraction process.
