Medicinally, Winter Savory has been used internally for colic, stomach upset, flatulence and nausea. Not for use during pregnancy. Used externally it has antiseptic qualities and is known to minimize the pain and itching from insect bites. Quite deer and drought resistant, but requires full sun and well drained soil. Winter Savory prefers a more marginal site rather than a rich garden soil. Hardy perennial. Hardy to zone 6.
