The Winter Savory is a plant that has been as much praised as rejected throughout history. Its Latin name, “Satureja”, indicates an origin related to the satyrs of Greek mythology, devine creatures known for their sexual vigor. Discarded from the pharmacology and classified as a “herb of the Devil” in the Middle Ages, because of its aphrodisiac virtues, it was later accepted again by the Benedictine of St. Hildegard who spoke of its many vertues in the treaty of medicine “Causae and Curae “. Since then it has been as frequently used for infusions like as a culinary condiment.
