Marjoram: Relaxing Muscle Soother

Did you know that "Marjoram was known as the 'herb of happiness' to the Romans and 'joy of the mountains' to the Greeks?" (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 90). I added Marjoram to my oil collection for its soothing properties on both the body and the mind. I was very excited to try it along with my equally amazing Frankincense and PanAway during my menstrual cycle and it did NOT disappoint. It was very uplifting, soothing, and relaxing. I have found that Frankincense, Marjoram, and Lemon in a veggie capsule along with PanAway in a roll-on blend are incredibly effective at soothing and relaxing sore, tired, or tense muscles.

Young Living says: "Marjoram (Origanum majorana) has a woody, spicy aroma. A calming oil, it has a warming effect on both mind and body and soothes tense muscles after exercise. It is beneficial for occasional simple nervous tension* and may also be used for cooking. Marjoram has an approximate ORAC of 1,390,055 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter."
