7 spice all-stars that add a twist of flavor and amazing healing benefits.

Oregano

Commonly known as the great smelling stuff you shake onto your slice at the local pizza parlor, oregano has antiviral, antibacterial, anticancer, antioxidant and antibiotic properties. Its oil and leaves are used medicinally in treating cough, fever, congestion, body-ache and other illnesses. Use it as a seasoning in stews, pizzas and tomato-based sauces. Whenever possible, opt for fresh oregano leaves, which can enhance the flavor of salads and soups.
