Origanum minutiflorum growing on Western Taurus Mountains in Turkey

Origanum minutiflorum

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.



Minutiflorum vs Vulgare

What’s the difference between Origanum vulgare, Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum and this oil, Origanum minutiflorum?

The Origanum perennial is a member of the Lamiaceae family and has well over 50 species and subspecies, ranging from the common vulgare to the endemic species of minutiflorum and hypericifolium.

Each species and subspecies of Origanum are made up of similar organic compounds that provide the plant varying degrees of powerful "anti" properties.

Origanum's highly sought-after antimicrobial properties include antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and antiparasitic compounds, although many more “anti” properties are known to exist within the plant and have been scientifically studied.
