This perennial, ever-green herbaceous plant in the family Labiatae originates from the Mediterranean basin but it is widespread in the Indian subcontinent as well as in certain islands of the Atlantic Ocean. The aromatic oil used both in the cosmetic industry and as a spice for cooking is found in glands produced inside the spike-shaped violet flowers, which grow on top of thin, elongated leaves. The stoechas variety has silver-shaded leaves and gives bigger flowers with a deeper purple hue on top of which a distinctive tuft of bracts grows.
