The new growth on my oregano stalks is thin and fine, and the leaves are tiny and spread far apart from one another. They are potted in my kitchen under a grow light. Any suggestions to make the plant fuller and healthier?

Your plant is becoming "leggy" because it is in a low light environment. Increasing the amount of light it receives, by adding another grow light or moving it to a sunnier window, is the best way to fix the problem. Also see this article:
