Much like Coriander, it’s helpful to talk specifics when talking about Marjoram essential oil. It shares lots of similarities with the more familiar Oregano; they are even part of the same genus classification of Origanum. In this post though, we’re talking about Origanum majorana and its amazing benefits for your health.
Marjoram is a popular culinary herb just like its Origanum vulgare cousin. It shares the same herbaceous aroma as Oregano though slightly sweeter and some would say a touch softer. Both plants were native to the Mediterranean and thus influenced Italian cuisine and other cultures of the region. Known to the ancient Greeks and Romans as a symbol of happiness, Marjoram’s natural benefits were discovered early.
By steam distilling the leaves of the Marjoram plant, we can concentrate the chemical compounds into an essential oil that promotes overall health and well-being. Its most prominent use in aromatherapy is to relieve stress, produce calming effects, and soothe the senses. Its powerful effects for the heart, nervous, and respiratory systems make Marjoram essential oil a versatile tool in a healthy, natural lifestyle.
