A versatile herb in the culinary world, the warm and slightly bitter taste of Marjoram is used to flavor a wide variety of foods and dishes such as meats, stews, eggs, vegetables and salads. Marjoram is a bushy perennial plant of the Mint (Lamiaceae) family native to west Asia and the Mediterranean, though it is also a common inhabitant of many country gardens in Europe. The plant itself can grow 24 inches high, with dark green oval leaves and small grayish flowers that bloom in clusters around the hairy stem. The entire Marjoram plant is highly aromatic.

Sweet Marjoram essential oil is a very good remedy for insomnia, especially when used in tandem with Lavender in a warm bath before bed. Its warm, nutty perfume is more masculine than many other oils that help with sleeplessness, and this makes it more acceptable to men.

Sweet Marjoram essential oil is also used to treat high blood pressure and heart conditions due to its ability to dilate arteries and relieve pressure on the heart. The same action on the tiny capillaries just beneath the skin produces a feeling of local warmth when used in a massage oil, making it an excellent treatment for tired and sore muscles, especially after heavy physical exertion.

Sweet Marjoram essential oil has a warm, peppery scent that penetrates both the mind and the body. Its aroma has spicy, herbal top notes rounded off by woody camphoraceous undertones.

The fragrance of Sweet Marjoram has an overall warming effect that helps improve the flow of energy throughout the body, as well as encourage strength and endurance. Sweet Marjoram also has a calming aroma that relieves oversensitivity, stress and nervous tension. Its fragrance is an excellent aid for comforting the sad and lonely.
