Oregano was originally native to the Mediterranean, wild-grown in Spain, Italy and other regions. Also known as wild Marjoram, some species of this plant were found in England. It was used in the early modern period as an antidote against the bites and stings of venomous animals, but also against those who had been poisoned with Hemlock or Opium. Oregano was also believed to cure long-lasting coughs and to heal scabs and itches.
