With the beautiful marjoram blooming in the front garden, we thought Marjoram should be our featured Oil of the Month for May. It also works out that Marjoram has a mothering quality to it so it's the perfect pick for Mother's Day too!
Sweet Marjoram (Origanum marjorana)
Marjoram’s warm, herbaceous aroma is soothing to both the mind and the body. The name for this plant is said to mean “joy of the mountains,” and it has been a standard in the herbal pharmacopeia for a long time. Therapeutically, Marjoram is great topically for sore muscles or in a respiratory blend for a spastic cough. The aroma of Marjoram has the softness of a maternal embrace and helps to calm feelings of anxiety. It is the perfect remedy for nervous exhaustion and insomnia.
As you inhale sweet Marjoram, think about your favorite soothing song or lullaby. Maybe even hum yourself a few lines. Listen inwardly to any new words Marjoram might offer up for you at this time.
If you could write yourself a lullaby to soothe your anxious mind, what would it sound like? What would it say?
