The main area of production for this oil is Central Europe where the savory is cultivated.

Summer Savory is found to contain larger proportions of p-cymene, terpinen-4-ol, and a-terpineol (plus borneol).

Savory has been used as a culinary herb since Antiquity in the Mediterranean countries. The two oils (Summer Savory & Winter Savory) are quite similar though not identical in odor and flavor. Summer Savory being the harsher of the two.

Properties:
anti bacterial, anti infectious, and anti fungal, warming (stimulating circulation). The oil acts on hypothermic and hypertension. Immunostimulant.

Uses:
Maybe an excellent additive in treatments of any kind of infectious and fungal skin diseases. The oil serves well in low concentration (1%) in massage oils to warm muscles and is beneficial for arthritis and rheumatism.

Safety: Generally regarded as safe (GRAS) but irritant and hepatotoxic in long term use. This oil should NOT be used on children. The oil is NEVER to be used pure, and always to be diluted well. A very potent oil. Avoid long term uses. Do NOT use for inhalations (mucus irritant). Not to be used during pregnancy.
