Marjoram (Origanum marjorana)

Analgesic, anaphrodisiac, antispasmodic, anti-viral, antibacteriacidal, carminative, emmenagogue, expectorant, hypotemsive, nervine, sedative, vasodilator

Marjoram has a warm, camphor-like & woody aroma. It is a great relaxant not only for the mind but for the respiratory system & is used to treat colds and flu, dry, tickly coughs and help breathing. Its antispasmodic qualities means it can be used to treat whooping cough.

I use it in my clinic to reduce high blood pressure, shingles & as a tonic to any disease where the nerves are affected. It is a really useful massage oil ingredient treating spasms, aches, pains, strains and strains; I use it in sports rubs too.

I use this warming oil extensively to address feelings of loneliness or isolation especially for many clients who live with dementia. People living with dementia often feel stranded & I use this oil to help bring them comfort, and reduce nervous exhaustion, distress & anxiety.

Interesting stuff:

Culpeper wrote: “Our common sweet marjoram is warming and comforting in cold diseases of the head, stomach sinews and other parts, taken inwardly or outwardly applied.”

Safety Note: Do not ingest

There have been some interesting studies about the use of marjoram as a strong candidate in treating cancers (notably breast cancer) (Dhaheri et al;2013) although further studies need to be conducted as to the if & how they might be considered therapeutically https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579842/
