Winter savory is an herb. The leaves and stems are used to make medicine.

People take winter savory for intestinal disorders including cramps, indigestion, diarrhea, nausea, and intestinal gas. They also take it to treat cough and sore throat, reduce sex drive, and as a tonic.

In manufacturing, winter savory oil is used as a flavoring agent.

Winter savory might work by increasing the production of urine (as a diuretic) and by opening (dilating) blood vessels.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Intestinal gas (flatulence).
Sore throat.
Reducing sex drive.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of winter savory for these uses.

Your lithium dose might need to be changed.
