The leaves, small and very abundant, have a linear shape. They are opposite, sessile, whole, with the edges downwards and of a dark green color, while on the underside they are whitish and covered with hairs. In the area of union of the leaf with the stem, the flowery bouquets are born.
The flowers are about 5 mm long. They have the bilabial corolla in one piece. The color is pale violet blue, pink or white, with a green or somewhat reddish calyx, also bilabied and flared. They are axillary flowers, very aromatic and melliferous; they are located at the top of the branches, they have two bent stamens welded to the corolla and with a small tooth.
The fruit, enclosed in the bottom of the calyx, is formed by four noculae 1.5-3 by 1-2 mm, ovoid, flattened, light brown in color with a light spot in the insertion area.
