This short and bushy perennial herb is a popular one to have in home made herb gardens and is often used in a variety of culinary dishes. Marjoram, or Origanum vulgare, is native to the Mediterranean, Egypt, and North African regions. The ancient Greek physicians would use this herb as a remedy for poisoning from snake bites while aromatherapists from around the world swear by its ability to relieve the symptoms of colds and bronchitis.
Marjoram has a history of being known to suppress sexual drive. Old herbalists would use the herb to make tea and it was widely consumed in monasteries for that purpose. It could be due to the fact that Marjoram can be a sedative and produces strong calming effects on the body. Today, it is mostly used for supporting the upper respiratory system.
This modest yet mighty herb has the ability to restore hormonal balance in women. Acting as a emmenagogue, it can be used to help start menstruation and has been used to promote breast milk in nursing mothers. Women who are pregnant should consult a physician before starting the use of Marjoram Essential Oil. For women dealing with PMS symptoms, menopause, and PCOS, Marjoram Essential Oil can be beneficial for restoring and balancing hormone levels.
