Product Overview

This special organic Sweet Marjoram has a very fresh, warm, sweet/spicy, terpenic aroma with a mildly pungent, herbaceous-woody undertone – a truly delightful aromatic scent!

All Origanum species are native to Mediterranean regions, and have been cultivated since ancient times.[1] Plants in the botanical family Labiatae – including Marjoram, Oregano, Lavender, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme – have a special predilection for dry rocky slopes, open spaces, and sunny mountains, preferring the median climatic regions around the Mediterranean Sea.[2]

 

Sweet Marjoram has a unique composition of terpene esters combined with a significant amount of the terpene alcohol, terpinene-4-ol – the same alcohol that makes Tea Tree so valuable in skincare.[3] Indeed, Sweet Marjoram is an effective addition to skincare preparations, diffuser blends, chest rubs, as well as nighttime sprays and massage blends. The name for the genus Origanum is derived from the Greek oros and ganos, meaning “joy of the mountains.”[4] The peaceful and comforting aroma is certainly a joy to use as it brings freshness and warmth to topical and perfumery creations.
