Marjoram Essential Oil

History of Marjoram Essential Oil

The oil is pale yellow to greenish yellow and gives off an aromatic and rustic fragrance characteristic of Marjoram Essential Oil.

Native to Asia and the Mediterranean basin, Marjoram belongs to the same botanical genus as oregano. It was used by the Egyptians to embalm their dead and appease the gods, before being a herb known to aid digestion in Ancient Rome.

Today, Marjoram is overshadowed by its cousin, oregano, which enjoys very good popularity in cooking, even though its flavor is less fine and less rich. We get an essential oil very appreciated in the agro-food industry as well as in perfumery and on the therapeutic level, of course.
