Dr. Nick Notes
Sweet marjoram is a perennial herb related to oregano and its oil has been used for centuries. Marjoram has been used as a ceremonial offering to Osiris the God of the underworld in Ancient Egypt, and to Aphrodite the Goddess of Love by the Greeks & Romans. Sweet Marjoram is a powerful feminine support herb that calls in more stillness, peace and receptivity.
Marjoram may be therapeutic in dealing with muscular pain, soreness, spasms, headaches, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, stress, anxiety, hyperactivity & insomnia. Sweet Marjoram is energetically calming and uplifting to the spirit – the scent is deeply herbaceous, comforting, soothing and invites a deeper level of calm.
