Marjoram Sweet France (Origanum majorana)


The plants thrive on sunny hillsides



The plants thrive on sunny hillsides. Sweet Marjoram originates in Libya, Egypt, the Mediterranean area and France.

When used as a steam inhalation, marjoram will clear the chest and ease respiratory difficulties quickly. It is one of the best oils to use in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis and colds. It can be massaged into the throat and chest to soothe a tickle in the throat and coughs.

Marjoram oil stimulates the vagus (parasympthetic) nerve and does not act on the sympatheic nerve, therefore its action is tranquilizing and lightly narcotic, a nervous sedative

The sedative properties must not be abused. It can dull the senses and cause drowsiness. In large dosages it can be stupefying. Marjoram is a good remedy for insomnia.

The Sweet, yet spicy fragrance is calming and relaxing.

Marjoram is a wonderful sedative and is great for slowing a racing mind before bed. It can also calm hyperactivity and hysteria, and eases stress, anger and irritability.
