A warm, comforting, spicy fragrance. Camphorous, penetrating and slightly eucalyptus-type aroma for decongestant effects. Traditionally symbolised love, and happiness

Marjoram essential oil is steam distilled from the Origanum majorana, which is native to Mediterranean regions. It is known to have been used by herbalists since ancient Greece, where they crowned bridal couples with wreaths of marjoram to symbolize love, honour and happiness. The ancient Greeks cultivated it for culinary and medicinal purposes as well as for its aroma.

Marjoram has a calming effect on the nervous system, relieves anxiety and stress, and can help with relaxation and restful sleep. This oil is said to be effective as an antiseptic and expectorant for the respiratory tract, and can be useful to relieve cold symptoms and congestion. Spanish marjoram oil is commonly used in aromatherapy and blends well with lavender and bergamot oils for creating a relaxing environment.
