Get to Know

The story of this unique essential oil starts in Ecuador, where Young Living Founder D. Gary Young came across a hardy, semi-succulent that produced a surprising amount of essential oil. Its aroma was similar to many oregano species with a moderately high carvacrol content. Ecuadorian Oregano (Plectranthus amboinicus) is thought to be originally from Africa but has spread throughout the world. As such, it has many common English names like Mexican mint, Spanish thyme, Indian mint, French thyme, Mexican thyme, Cuban oregano, and Three-in-one herb. Another way to identify this oil is by its common and former scientific synonyms, which are: Coleus amboinicus, Coleus aromaticus, and Plectranthus aromaticus.
