Herbes de Provence are a mixture of four aromatic plants. They are used to flavour meats, ratatouille or tomato sauces.

The main herbs found in herbes de Provence are those that are also used in the composition of bouquets garnis.

The composition of a mixture of herbs of Provence differs according to the addition of certain aromatics to the mixture which constitutes the base of the herbs of Provence, namely:

The aromatics that are added to this base are

  • Sage
  • Basil
  • ..

Did you know ? the term "Herbes de Provence" is a commercial name that is not protected. There is no official recipe. Only 10% of the herbs de Provence mixtures sold in France are grown in the country.

Harvesting Herbs of Provence

The different varieties of herbs that make up herbes de Provence are harvested when the plants have reached maturity. In late spring and early summer for savory and rosemary, in July for oregano, while thyme can be harvested at any time out of flower.

Once harvested, the plants must be dried. Generally, they are tied up and then hung by their stems. The plants are considered dry once they crack. However, they should not crumble too easily.

It then remains to compose the mixture of herbs of Provence by respecting the following proportions:

27% rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)

27% savory (Satureia hortensias)

27 % oregano (Origanum vulgare)

19% thyme (Thymus)

Did you know? in France, 400 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of Provence herbs.

The origins of Herbes de Provence

The traditional recipe of Provence herbs was born in the Mediterranean. The herbs were then cultivated in the wild, harvested and then worked by hand.

It is in a book of Provencal recipes " La cuisine Provençale " by Jean-Baptiste Reboul that we find for the first time, the name of herbs of Provence. At that time, the basic composition of the 4 main herbs was not yet well defined.

It was in 1970 that the first industrial mixtures were discovered in the market. For marketing reasons, the mixtures intended for the United States will include additional herbs like lavender.

Herbs of Provence are not subject to a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), so they can be grown anywhere. However, the herbs of Provence having received the Label Rouge must meet a strict composition of the 4 main aromatic herbs: rosemary, savory, oregano and thyme.

With 400 hectares of French land dedicated to the cultivation of herbs de Provence, France and more particularly the South-East, cannot meet the demand. This is why today, the vast majority of the herbs of Provence marketed come from Asia, North Africa or Eastern countries.

Particularity of the 4 plants present in the herbs of Provence

Herbes de Provence has the virtues of the different aromatic plants that make up the mixture.

The benefits linked to the 4 main plants are those :

  • Rosemary: this plant of the Lamiaceae family has been used since the 18th century in medicine, particularly in the navy, for its antimycotic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It helps digestion.
  • Savory: it is used since the Antiquity for condiment. It has vermifuge, digestive and antiseptic functions. It also has antiparasitic and antibacterial effects.
  • Oregano: this herbaceous perennial plant of the Lamiaceae family has antiseptic properties and can be used to treat colds and flu. It also helps digestion.
  • Thyme: common thyme has bactericidal properties. During the Egypt of the pharaohs, it was used burned to embalm the dead.

The herbs of Provence nowadays

Today, most of the herbs of Provence are sold and consumed dried. The 4 herbs that make up the base of the mixture have the particularity of increasing their aromas tenfold when dried.
