In ancient Greece, Spanish Marjoram has been used as a traditional herbal medicine. The main source of the oil is the leaves of the perennial thyme plant, Thymus Mastichina that grows wild in the provinces of Spain such as Granada, Sevilla, Almeria, and Huelva.
Curative wise, Spanish Marjoram essential oil certainly packs a punch and is known for its potent antiseptic, analgesic, decongestive, antispasmodic, and antifungal properties. It can help alleviate tired and aching muscles, dysmenorrhea, headaches, colds, sinusitis, and more. It even relieves anxious thoughts, obsessive behaviours, grief, and helps encourage sleep!

Add 2-4 drops of essential oil per 100ml of water to your diffuser. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.
Add 3-10 drops of essential oil to a personal inhaler to inhale as needed.
Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
