Oregano blossom honey is a type of honey produced by bees that primarily forage on oregano blossoms. Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a fragrant and aromatic herb commonly used in Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. When bees collect nectar from the tiny, tubular flowers of oregano plants, they produce a honey with a unique flavor and aroma. This is a rare kind of honey which bees produce from oregano blossom.
