I was sitting with my husband tonight while he looked at the doTERRA product list when he asked "What is Marjoram?" I then so smartly replied "I don't know.... I think you can cook with it."
So now is the lucky day when we will all find out about MARJORAM!!!! :)
Marjoram is most well known as a culinary
herb, but has some valuable medicinal uses. It is closely
related to oregano, and has similar properties. Marjoram is
often thought of to address sore muscles, joints, sprains,
and back pain as it is a natural muscle relaxant. It also
has respiratory and digestive uses. It is also often used
for tension headaches or migraines. Similarly marjoram is
effective relieving stress and helping insomnia. DōTerra
Marjoram Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flower and
leaf of the plant. The plant is grown in Hungary.
Ways you can use Marjoram are: Mix 1-2 drops with agave, honey, water, or
juice for minor stomach complaints of indigestion. Marjoram
is certified as GRAS by the FDA. Apply topically with
massage to address sore muscles or joints. Apply direct to
sprains, sore backs, or necks for antispasmodic effects. Use
diffusion or direct massage to the chest, neck, and lymph
nodes at the onset of cold and flu or respiratory distress
symptoms. Use topically with massage to the lower back and
abdomen for menstrual issues. Menstrual issues and stress
relief can also be addressed adding marjoram to a warm bath.
Use with care
