Savory, Summer 50% off
This wonderful summer savory is from the South of France. It's usually cultivated (rather than wild) and it a delightful herb with potatoes.
Caution - this oils is a little harsher than the Winter Savory.
Caution with this oil, though. Use for a short time only and in very small doses. Infintesimal doses even. Probably better not to even go near it if you don't have experience and education with oils. Don't take this one internally. It can be hard on the liver. And not for children at all. Not for pregnant women, don't use directly on the skin and don't do inhalations with savory.
There are two Savory oils; winter and summer.
They are closely related and both belong to the Satureja genus (Labiatae family)
Aromatherapy uses are similar too—and similar to oregano and thyme. Deciding on a savory is a matter of personal choice.
Harvested and steam distilled in France from wild plants
This savory is more often found in the wild and it's a little milder than the garden, or Summer savory.
Savory oil is a pale yellow or almost colorless liquid of fresh medicinal-spicy odor, reminiscent of sage and thyme, but with a sharpness recalling that of cumin oil, although not distinctly green. The dry-out is rather phenolic-harsh. The real strength for savories is as a flavor, but then only in very low concentrations. It can also be used in perfumery—in compositions of the forest-type, chypres, fougères, or as a modifier in lavender bouquests and colognes with citrus oils and oakmoss. It blends well with rosemary, lavender, pines, etc.
