To the ancient Greek, Marjoram is more than just a flavourful addition to salad dressings, soups, marinades, and sauces. It was called the plant of love and was used in love spells and worn during wedding ceremonies.
Often confused with Oregano, Marjoram belongs to the mint family and has a milder flavour and herbaceous, woody aroma. Aptly called “happiness herb" and “joy of the mountains”, diffusing this oil can help uplift your emotions and refresh the air.
If your nerves are jangled, dilute with a carrier oil and apply to the back of the neck to calm you down and inspire positive feelings. If you have a fussy baby who needs their nap but refuses to sleep, try applying this oil to the bottom of their feet.
Is there a recipe you like that calls for dried or fresh Marjoram? Substitute with essential oil so you won't have to keep your cupboard stocked. After all, even dried herbs lose their potency after just six months!
