Marjoram Materia Medica


Marjoram (also referred to as sweet marjoram) is a member of the Labiatae or mint family. Among the ancient Greeks, the bride and groom were crowned with marjoram. The Greeks associated marjoram with Aphrodite, their goddess of love, beauty and fertility who supposedly created marjoram as a gentle symbol of happiness.

In aromatherapy, marjoram is thought to warm and strengthen the nerves. On a psycho-spiritual level, marjoram is thought to restore enthusiasm and spontaneity to adults worn out by the stress of life, help one confront emotional issues, support the manifestation of ideas and intuition and bring peace to departed spirits.
