Greek extra virgin olive oil - specifically Greek oil, has the lowest acidity (approximately 0.5%) and is packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Benefits may include anti-inflammatory properties, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and improves bone calcification. (Source)


Thyme - The Ancient Greeks associated Thyme with courage, bravery and strength. They burned bundles of thyme to purify their temples and homes, and to evoke a spirit of courage in those who inhaled it. In modern times, we know it is a rich source of several essential vitamins and it is also a great source of calcium, iron, manganese, selenium, and potassium. Thyme contains antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, carminative, diaphoretic, and expectorant properties which supports healing throughout the entire body. (Source)


Oregano - (it must be Greek oregano, as there is a difference in flavour) Oregano is high in antioxidants, it can help prevent damage by neutralising disease-causing free radicals, and contains certain compounds that have potent antibacterial properties. (Source)
