Marjoram Essential Oil has a beautiful, herbal aroma that I find blends well with a lot of other essential oils including but not limited to lavender, clary sage, rose, neroli, grapefruit, and numerous others.
Marjoram Essential Oil is quite balancing to the body and the mind. Emotionally, Marjoram Oil is helpful for use with stress, anxiety and grief.
Marjoram’s warm herbal aroma will strengthen your nervous system, rebuild your reserve, fortify your spirit and reduce obsessive thinking. [Robbi Zeck, ND, The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation (Victoria, Australia: Aroma Tours, 2008), 96.]
