Origanum minutiflorum is a rare herb, endemic to the high-altitude region of the Western Taurus Mountains, where its limited growth stretches in a narrow band between the Isparta and Antalya provinces. The Taurus Mountains reach well over 3700 meters (over 12,000ft) and are rich in naturally occurring mineral deposits, such as chromium, silver, copper, iron, ignite and zinc.
This high-altitude region is also abundant in limestone, waterfalls, and underground rivers, which contribute to the pristine growing conditions that produce this rare, highly sought after Origanum.
Once permission is granted by the local Forestry Department, endemic minutiflorum is carefully harvested to preserve the integrity of the plant.
Our non-standardized oil is expertly distilled to achieve maximum synergistic activity between the naturally occurring chemical constituents within the oil.
Standardizing by means of high-heat distillation is common in the industry and is oftentimes done to increase levels of specific constituents, primarily carvacrol.
ReThink's Origanum minutiflorum is naturally high in carvacrol, so there is no need to standardize. Our oil is a true gift from Mother Earth.
