Native to the eastern Mediterranean, summer savory is a low-growing plant belonging to the mint family. Ancient Egyptians dried the summer herb to make powder and use it in various tonics. Today, summer savory is best known for its culinary uses, but it also offers many health benefits.
Summer herb essential oil promotes healthy cell strength and provides benefits and support to a wide range of body systems, including the respiratory, immune, nervous, musculoskeletal, digestive and cardiovascular systems.* This is primarily due to its key chemical constituent, carvacrol. Experimental research suggests that carvacrol may also aid in healthy weight management.*
Carvacrol is a phenolic compound. Phenols have powerful antioxidant properties.* They are also very potent, which can cause skin irritation or sensitivity. Oils with high phenol content such as Summer Herbs, Oregano, and Cloves should be diluted before topical application.
Fittingly, Summerwort grows only during warm months. It grows between July and September, blooming with lilac flowers and bronze-colored green leaves. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant after they are harvested and dried.
