Sweet Marjoram

Origanum majorana
Marjoram is a plant with small, white flowers that grow in bunches. The Greeks knew the plant well and took it as the symbol of honour and love. Legend recounts how Venus washed and healed Aeneus' wounds using this plant. It was also valued, even then, as much for culinary as medicinal purposes, and we find it mentioned in recipes left to us by Apicius.
