Grow Provencal herbs at home to add flavor and aroma to your dishes.
Thyme: it is a perennial and resistant plant, perfect for stews. Its leaves are oval in shape and the flowers are pink and white. This plant has multiple medicinal properties since it is antiseptic, digestive stimulant, antirheumatic and prevents anemia.
Oregano: much more than a condiment for pizza. Its name means "the joy of the mountain." It has been used in natural remedies for thousands of years and is essential in Mediterranean cuisine. It pairs very well in salad dressings or with cheeses, meats and eggs. It can be used fresh, but the aroma of its leaves intensifies with drying. Like other herbs, oregano loses its flavor with cooking, so it is best to add it at the end of the preparation.
Rosemary: it is the easiest aromatic plant to take care of of all and the one that is less spiky and ugly. You can plant it both on the balcony or terrace and in very sunny interiors. It requires little care and adapts well to all environments, but prefers them warm and dry. Don't let it puddle. Water it only when the soil is dry.
Lavender: it is appreciated not only for its delicate and unmistakable perfume but also for its therapeutic virtues. The violet and blue colors are responsible for transporting you to the fields of French Provence. Lavender invites calm and relaxation, ideal for interior decoration or to add color to any part of the garden.
