Marvelous Marjoram Essential Oil

Marjoram is one of those oils that I really didn't pay much attention to at first. I just added it to my stash because I was determined to have one of each Essential Oil. Then I noticed it as an ingredient in recipes for nasal rinses, pain blends, digestive blends, and other things. 

It's really a very important addition to your Essential Oil stock and it's the February Oil Of The Month Club selection.

Marjoram oil has a warming action and calms emotions, relieves anxiety as well as stress and helps to calms hyperactive people. It has good muscle relaxant properties and the pain killing properties are useful for rheumatic pains as well as sprains, strains and spasms, as well as swollen joints and painful muscles.

It soothes the digestive system and helps with cramps, indigestion, constipation and flatulence and has a beneficial action on colds, sinusitis, bronchitis and asthma.
