Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil

Sweet marjoram is great for flavoring all sorts of foods, but the essential oil made from this herb is used medicinally. There is some confusion about herbs known as marjoram. The sweet marjoram essential all with so many incredible uses is made from the herb Origanum majorana. It is good for everything from pain relief to improved brain function and digestion. I am amazed at all of the fascinating uses of sweet marjoram essential oil. This oil belongs in everyone’s essential oil collection.

1. Relieve Headaches

Mix sweet marjoram essential oil into a carrier oil at the rate of half essential oil to half carrier. Put a drop or 2 of the blend on your fingertips and gently massage it into your temples and/or forehead to get relief from tension headaches. Sweet marjoram oil aromatherapy is also great for this. Just add 2 drops to your diffuser and run it for 30 to 60 minutes. The fragrance is amazing. It has a sort of spicy yet lightly sweet aroma.

2. Relieve Arthritis Pain

Massage a half and half sweet marjoram EO/carrier oil blend into achy, arthritic joints. You will feel relief from the pain almost instantly. Aromatherapy can help with this, too. You only need 2 to 3 drops in your diffuser.Massage a half and half sweet marjoram EO/carrier oil blend into achy, arthritic joints. You will feel relief from the pain almost instantly.

Important Note: Whatever you choose for an oil, make sure that the oils you purchase are high quality. Remember, you're breathing this oil into your lungs so essential oil quality is a terrible place to cut corners.

6. Soothe Sore Muscles

Massage sore muscles with a 50/50 sweet marjoram/carrier oil blend. You will be amazed at how quickly the soreness goes away. You can use any carrier oil. I personally prefer to use both coconut oil and argan oil mixed together as a carrier oil for sore muscles and achy joints. I use 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon or argan oil and 2 teaspoons of essential oil. They complement each other quite well. The coconut oil has a great viscosity for massage and argan absorbs quickly. You can also add 3 to 5 drops of sweet marjoram oil to an Epsom salt bath for a muscle-soothing soak. Use 1 to 2 cups of Epsom salts and soak for about 40 minutes.

7. Stop Spasms

Massage the 50/50 blend into areas with muscle spasms for fast relief. You can use it for leg muscles, abdominals or back muscles. Any carrier oil is fine.

8. Prevent Bacterial Infection

Gently apply the 50/50 blend to sores and wounds to prevent bacterial infection. Sweet marjoram essential oil has excellent anti-bacterial properties. Wash the wound with mild soap and dry it before applying the blend then cover the sore with a bandage.

9. Prevent Viral Infection

Rub the 50/50 blend into your hands to help prevent viral infections. Sweet marjoram has anti-viral properties. Diffusing it in your home or at your desk will also kill viruses on surfaces and in the air.
