Savory has a certain sedative effect so it will combine very well with other plants with the same effect as valerian or lemon balm.

To sum up, it is attributed with calming, healing, carminative, aromatic, sedative, etc. properties.

History

Satureja montana extract is native to southern Europe, the Mediterranean basin and even the Black Sea.

Its name Satureja has already been identified before the Romans as it is a plant that has been cultivated since ancient times for culinary and medicinal purposes primarily. There are numerous bibliographies where, for example, the Greeks already used their juice and decoction as a remedy to eliminate “…the obstacles of sight…”.

It’s a small vivacious plant, of small height, very branched and with numerous small leaves of a grayish green. This plant grows in calcareous and sunny soils and gives off a very pleasant fragrance.
