Also Known as Satureja montana, White Thyme, and Winter Savoury
Farming Type: Organic
Like its better-known cousin, summer savory, winter savory is most often used as a culinary herb, imparting a spicy, peppery flavor to dishes in which it is used. Easy to grow, the hardy perennial makes an excellent companion plant for most other herbs. Its aromatic scent repels harmful insects and pests while attracting bees and other pollinators. Winter savory has a stronger, sharper flavor than its summer cousin, but it still blends well with thyme, sage, and rosemary as well as most mints. While its most popular uses are culinary, winter savory has often been used for medicinal purposes over the course of history.
Whether used for its medicinal properties or to flavor food, winter savory has been around since before the days of the Romans. Its sharp, spicy-peppery tang makes it a favorite flavoring for pork, beef and poultry, and popular addition to soups and salads.
NOTE: Should not be used in medicinal doses by pregnant women.
Magically, like its cousin, Savory Winter is also ruled by Mercury and Air. However, its energies are more in tune with psychic work rather than communication
