Marjoram Oil SourceMarjoram is a tender, bushy perennial plant with small oval leaves - the entire plant is strongly aromatic, and produces a wonderful essential oil with a great variety of properties and uses. It is native to the Mediterranean region, growing naturally in both central European and North African countries. The essential oil is an amber colored liquid with a warm, woody, spicy and mildly camphorus aroma. Our particular variety is a bit sweeter and more pleasant than others we've tried.

The herb has a long tradition in culinary use and as a 'folk' remedy. It was used by the ancient Greeks in fragrances, cosmetics and medicines. Its original name comes from a greek word meaning 'joy of the mountains'. Marjoram essential oil is considered to have warming, soothing and fortifying effects. It is considered by aromatherapists to aid in menstrual (it may induce menstruation for some where their cycle has been inconsistent), digestive, nervous and respiratory complaints. It may also help obstructions of the liver and spleen.

Sweet Marjoram oil is perhaps most commonly used in formulas for muscular and rheumatic pain, sprains, strains, bruises and stiff joints. For this purpose, it can be included in massage-type blends at a 5% concentration and applied as frequently as desired. It is also highly recommended as a nerve tonic, again it may be diluted in a carrier oil and rubbed into the temples or the chest, allowing the aroma to be inhaled over time.



To learn more about the use of all our essential oils, we encourage you to visit The Ananda Apothecary Forums, where you can post questions regarding specific applications of each oil. Questions in the forums are regularly answered by Ananda Apothecary staff, and other experienced aromatherapy practitioners.

About
Ananda Aromatherapy
Essential Oils:
All oils from Ananda Aromatherapy are therapeutic grade, meaning they are produced to the highest quality standards possible. Our essential oils are chosen for their integrity (all chemical constituents important for aromatherapy are intact), ecological 'soundness' (most are organic or wild grown), and wonderful aromas. You may order a sample of any oil before trying larger amounts. Most samples are about .75ml; exotic oils such as Melissa, Rose, Angelica and Jasmine are only a few drops. Ananda Aromatherapy offers wholesale essential oils direct to you. We forgo the use of separate wholesale and retail tiers in order to keep fine therapeutic grade oils accessible to everyone!
