Oregano Flower Buds

Earthy, Citrus, Floral


Oregano is a perennial herb with white or lilac-hued flowers. While the leaves are harvested and dried for flakes, the buds—picked at their peak aroma, right before bloom—offer a more delicate flavor. Our whole oregano buds flourish in the arid summers and mild winters of Denizli, Turkey, producing a spicy, hoppy twist when added to your meal.

  • Origin

    The flowers bloom year-round in Denizli, Turkey, a town known throughout the western Aegean region for its luxuriant gardens. Everything from old-growth olive trees with twisted trunks to delicate lilac vitex flourishes in the mild climate and nutrient-rich soil of this fertile plain. Oregano loves the sun, so it’s no wonder both wild and cultivated plants thrive in the arid summers of Denizli, producing tiny, pinecone-shaped buds that bloom in bouquets of white, pink, or light purple flowers.
