Marjoram – one of the Organic Herbs and Spices from Crete...

Marjoram is used widely to flavour most meat dishes in the traditional Cretan diet and is also used in many Greek dishes. It also enhances the flavour of tomato dishes and is used in salad dressings.

It is said that Ancient Greeks planted Marjoram on the graves of their passed loved ones believing that the deceased would enjoy eternal peace and happiness. The Ancient Greeks also made head wreaths of Marjoram for wedding couples as a symbol of love, honour, and happiness.
