Aroma:Spicy, warm, herbaceous, much more camphoraceous and medicinal smelling than the Sweet Marjoram.
Latin Name:Thymus mastichina, Thyme cineole type.
Country of Origin:Spain
Cultivation Method:Conventionally Grown
Extraction Method:Steam Distilled
Extracted From:Whole plant
Color:Clear to pale yellow
Suggested Use:Add 3-6 drops of Aromaland's Tranquillite Blend (which contains Marjoram) to 1oz. of unscented massage oil or lotion to massage sore, aching muscles.
Adding just 5 drops to a warm bath brings welcome stimulation to sore, stiff and overworked muscles. Also try our Calming, Take Five and Tranquillite Blends (which contain Marjoram) for this purpose. In order to prevent the oils from floating on the surface, blend the Essential Oil with some Half & Half, honey, vinegar or Aromaland's Coconut Emulsifier before adding it to the water.
For most applications - like cooking, diffusion etc. - Sweet Marjoram is recommended.
History:This Marjoram is actually wild growing Thyme. However, since it is commonly referred to as Wild Marjoram, we'll continue this tradition.
Specific Safety Information:No known toxicity, non-irritant in small doses. Avoid if you are pregnant or have low blood pressure. GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) approved by the FDA as food flavor.
