Overview:

Native to the Mediterranean, marjoram stands out for its restorative benefits. In Greek history, marjoram was a symbol of happiness, and often called “the joy of the mountains.” It was used in momentous ceremonies during life, such as weddings, as well as during death as a sign of post-life happiness when found growing on a grave.

On the opposite side of the death spectrum, Marjoram is great for the living body. It has long been used to treat muscle pain and general soreness. To test the oil on a more specific kind of pain, marjoram oil was added to a small blend of oils and diluted into a cream to be tested via randomized, double blind, clinical trial. The control group used a synthetic scent. When massaged onto the abdomen during a painful bout of dysmenorrhea, the analgesic effects of the oils combined together to help the test group find relief.

Marjoram is also a close cousin of oregano.
