Warming and comforting, marjoram essential oil is good for anything that hurts - menstrual cramps, sore muscles, sports injuries - you name it.
It's also very good for breaking up congestion and easing breathing. Add it to a hot bath at the first sign of a cold. It'll ease your aches and pains, make it easier to breathe and knock you out so you can fall right to sleep.
Marjoram is recommended for hyperactivity, chronic anxiety and high blood pressure because it promotes calm and stability while at the same time lifting spirits and easing tension.
Dilute a couple of drops in a tablespoon of carrier oil and gently massage into your temples to soothe a migraine.
Marjoram oil soothes the digestive system and helps with cramps, indigestion, constipation and flatulence. Use a hot marjoram compress on the stomach to help relieve discomfort.
