This is one of my favorite essential oils! Marjoram is a herb that you can use in cooking, when distilled is an essential oil you can use in a variety of ways!

Origin: Egypt, often grown in Mediterranean, North Africa, and Western Asia (Preiato, 2019)

Herb Family: Mint family

Benefits of Marjoram

These benefits have not been reviewed by the FDA but were reported by people who used them. I don’t recommend ingesting essential oils because of their strength. You can inhale or put essential oils on topically.

  • Marjoram has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties (Preiato, 2019)
