  Marjoram, Sweet
Origanum majorana, ethically farmed, steam-distilled flowers and leaves, Egypt.


Marjoram’s aroma is slightly spicy, warm and soothing. It blends well with Orange, Eucalyptus (softening it, somewhat) and Lavender. I sometimes blend it with Clary Sage, especially for menstrual difficulties.

Marjoram Oil has been used to lower high blood pressure. It warms the skin, where applied. Marjoram’s powerful antispasmodic action can ease pains of arthritis, cramped muscles, muscle spasms, and menstrual cramps. (Try blending with Clary Sage for relieving menstrual cramps; the result is almost magical!) It has a calming, slightly sedative action and can be effective against some types of migraines.

Educator and author Madeleine Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes advises use of anti-oxidant and antibacterial Sweet Marjoram for any sort of skin infection.  She says add to bandaid/bandage, use to cover the wound.  i.e, add to the dressing, not directly to the wound itself.    She further suggests use for infected wounds, necrotic tissue (to help with the smell) ulcers and abcesses.    Madeleine recommends a blend of Lavender, Helichrysum, Geranium and Sweet Marjoram to add to wound dressings, to clear infections and speed healing.

Sweet Marjoram mixes well with Lavender or Rosewood or English Chamomile for a very relaxing bath.

WARNING: This oil can stimulate menstrual flow, and thus should never be used during pregnancy.
