Marjoram, also known as Sweet Marjoram, is an aromatic herb, and is a member of the mint family. The flower itself is rather small and unusual looking, and it sometimes forms in spikey clusters. The whole plant is very aromatic, with the leaves often used in cooking due to their spicy, potent flavour.
When sweet marjoram is extracted using CO2 extraction methods, a gentle and warming oil is produced. The oil has a sweet, herbaceous aroma with warming effects, that can be helpful for the relief of everyday aches and pains in muscles and joints. Not only does this oil have physical benefits, it can provide emotional support too. It has been said that the Greeks and Romans regarded marjoram as a symbol of happiness. It can be very balancing, to both the mind and body. It helps to relieve tension and stressors from within. We suggest a few drops into a bath salts or massaged onto the skin to reduce stress and diminish those sleepless nights.
