Botanical Name: Thymus mastichina
Plant Part: Flowers and Leaves

Description: Marjoram Essential Oil is derived from the plant – a bushy perennial growing up to 60cm in height with a hairy stem, dark green oval leaves and small whitish flowers found in clusters. The entire plant is extremely aromatic.
Colour: Pale yellow liquid.
Aromatic Scent: Marjoram Essential Oil has a spicy, warm, herbaceous odor, much more medicinal smelling than the Sweet Marjoram.
Common Use: Marjoram Essential Oil is typically used on sore, tired aching muscles. It can also be used as a relaxant or sedative. It has applications for comforting, warming, restoring, soothing, acting as a decongestant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, or an anti-fungal agent.
Spiritual Use: The Greeks and the Romans associated Marjoram with love and happiness and also with transition through physical death. Death is a metaphor for transformation. Marjoram helps with spiritual disconnection and insecurity and can transform those feelings in the opposite.
What Chakra is connected: Heart and Solar plexus
History: This Marjoram is actually wild growing Thyme. However, since it is commonly referred to as Wild Marjoram, we’ll continue this tradition.
Cautions: Marjoram Essential Oil is generally non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing. Avoid use during pregnancy.
