Marjoram (Origanum majorana)
Marjoram oil is often used for tension headaches and migrains, because of its calming and relaxing effect on the muscles. These same properties make marjoram effective at relieving stress and helping with insomnia.
Some of the therapeutic properties of marjoram oil include: analgesic, anti-bacterial, antibiotic, anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-viral, disinfectant, expectorant, sedative and stimulant.
Common uses for marjoram oil
Marjoram oil can also be applied topically, massaged into the affected areas for sore muscles or joint, sprains, sore backs, necks, for its anti-spasmodic effects.
At the onset of cold, flu or respiratory distress symptoms, either diffuse marjoram or massage into the chest, neck and lymph nodes.
For menstrual issues, massage marjoram oil on the lower back and lower abdomen. And, of course, menstrual issues — as well as just plain stress — can be addressed by adding marjoram to a warm bath. The best way to do this is to dilute the oil in Himalayan Crystal Salt or Epsom's salts, before adding to the bath water.

Even though an essential oil may be 100% pure, if the right species or part of a plant has not been used, or if the plant has not been grown in the right environment or harvested at the right time, or if it has not been distilled under the right conditions, the natural chemical makeup of the extraction will not provide as predictable and powerful a benefit. In some cases, the wrong plant harvested at the wrong time may result in an extract that contains harmful levels of some constituents.
