Lippia graveolens Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae (unranked): Angiosperms (unranked): Eudicots (unranked): Asterids Order: Lamiales Family: Verbenaceae Genus: Lippia Species: L. graveolens Binomial name Lippia graveolens Kunth[1] Synonyms Lippia berlandieri Schauer[2] Lippia graveolens is a species of flowering plant in the verbena family, Verbenaceae, that is native to the southwestern United States (Texas and southern New Mexico), Mexico, and Central America as far south as Nicaragua.[1] Common names include Redbrush Lippia, Orégano Cimmaron, Scented Lippia,[3] Mexican Oregano, and Scented Matgrass.[4] The specific name is derived from the Latin words gravis, meaning "heavy", and oleo, meaning "scented".[5] It is a shrub or small tree, reaching 1–2.7 m (3.3–8.9 ft) in height.[2] Fragrant white or yellowish flowers can be found on the plant throughout the year, especially after rains.[3] Uses The essential oil of Redbrush Lippia contains 0-81% thymol, 0-48% carvacrol, 3-30% para-cymene, and 0-15% eucalyptol. The first two components give the plant a flavor similar to oregano,[2] and the leaves are widely used as an herb in Mexico and Central America.[6] References ^ a b "Lippia graveolens Kunth".
