- Savory, Summer
Labiatae family (Lamiaceae)
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.
What a power packed little herb this one is! He is often overlooked by people seeking out the better known cousins of the Labiatae family. But the savories totally rock.
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.
