Lamiaceae is a family of plants including many culinary herbs, such as mint, basil and thyme. It was originally called Labiatae because the flowers have petals fused into an upper lip and a lower lip. The leaves contain aromatic essential oils and emerge oppositely, each pair at right angles to the previous one (called decussate). Many species have square stems.
