Product Information



Warm, herbaceous and slightly peppery, Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil, also known simply as Marjoram Essential Oil, is loved by many for its beautiful aroma and broad health benefits.

Called ‘the symbol of happiness’ by the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Marjoram herb Origanum majorana has long been prized for its mood-lifting abilities. Nowadays, its flowers and leaves are steam distilled to produce an essential oil that boasts much more than an uplifting scent, but an abundance of properties said to assist in many aspects of life from relieving mental stress and physical body pains to supporting the skin, hormones, and restful sleep.

Highly versatile, Marjoram Oil sits well in aromatherapy collections ready for diffusing or diluting for topical use.
