    SWEET MARJORAM HERB

    The bushy perennial herb Marjoram, or Origanum majorana, grows in the dry and sunny regions of the eastern Mediterranean. It is a somewhat cold-sensitive undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavors. In some Middle Eastern countries, Marjoram is synonymous with Oregano, and there the names Sweet Marjoram and Knotted Marjoram are used to distinguish it from other parts of the genus Origanum. It is also called Pot Marjoram, although this name is also used for other cultivated species of Origanum. The difference between Origanum majorana and Majorana hortensis comes in name only. Both are accepted botanical names for the herb commonly known as Sweet or Knotted Marjoram.

    Marjoram is indiginous to Cyprus and southern Turkey, and was known to the Greeks and Romans as a symbol of happiness. The plant has long been used for its culinary and medicinal value. Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was said to treasure Marjoram for its healing properties. Ancient Egyptians used this herb for disinfecting, preserving, and healing. The Greeks used it to make wreaths and garlands for wedding and funerals. In the Middle Ages, the European ladies used Marjoram in nosegays. Historically, Marjoram tea has been used for relieving the symptoms of hay fever, sinus congestion, indigestion, asthma, stomach pain, headache, dizziness, colds, coughs, and nervous disorders. It a lightly fragrant and calming herb that has mild antioxidant, anti-fungal, and anti-spasmodic properties.

    The leaves of Marjoram are smooth, simple, petiolated, ovate to oblong-ovate, 0.5 to 1.5 cm long, 0.2 to 0.8 cm wide, with obtuse apex, entire margin, symmetrical but tapering base and reticulate venation. The texture is extremely smooth due to the presence of numerous hairs. Considered a tender perennial (USDA Zones 7 to 9), Marjoram can sometimes prove hardy even in zone 5.

    Marjoram is cultivated for its aromatic leaves, either green or dry, for culinary purposes; the tops are cut as the plants begin to flower and are dried slowly in the shade. Marjoram is used for seasoning soups, stews, dressings, and sauces. It is often used in herb combinations such as herbes de Provence and za'atar. The flowering leaves and tops of marjoram are steam-distilled to produce an essential oil that is yellowish in color (darkening to brown as it ages). It has many chemical components, some of which are borneol, camphor, and pinene.

    Related Species: Oregano (Origanum vulgare, sometimes listed with marjoram as Origanum majorana) is also called Wild Marjoram. It is a perennial common in southern Europe in dry copses and on hedge-banks, with many stout stems 30 to 80 cm high, bearing short-stalked, somewhat ovate leaves and clusters of purple flowers. It has a stronger flavor than marjoram. Pot marjoram or Cretan oregano (Origanum onites) has similar uses to marjoram. Hardy marjoram or French marjoram, a cross of marjoram with oregano, is much more resistant to cold, but is slightly less sweet. Origanum pulchellum is known as showy marjoram or showy oregano.

    wild marjoram


    WILD MARJORAM HERB

    A woody, perennial shrub, Wild Marjoram (Thymus Mastichina) is also known by the names Spanish Thyme, Sweet Marjoram, Mastic Thyme, or Marjoram Spanish. It grows best in well-drained sandy or loamy soils, full sunshine, and either dry or moist soil conditions. This bushy, evergreen plant produces oval leaves featuring a deep green color. Tiny white flowers grow in small clusters that appear during the summer months of July and August. The Thymus Mastichina grows to approximately one foot in height to two feet in width, although these numbers vary since climate and growing medium impact the growth of this evergreen shrub.

    A native plant of Portugal and the central area of Spain, the Thymus Mastichina is classified as an aromatic herb. Despite this fact, the plant is prized more for its essential oils than for its herbal properties. It is infrequently used as a culinary herb, however, although it may be used fresh or in dried form. Its leaves are used to make an herbal tea that is considered useful in treating sore throats and colds. If preferred, the tea can be used to gargle with rather than ingested. Generally, the leaves are harvested prior to the flowering of the plant if dried leaves are desired for any purpose. Wild Thyme (Thymus sperpyllus) and Common Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) are more commonly used as herbs or condiments.

    WILD MARJORAM ESSENTIAL OIL

    Wild Marjoram essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves or roots of the Thymus Mastichina and sometimes from its flowers. This essential oil offers a rich woodsy fragrance that features eucalyptus-like notes, a scent used in aromatherapy practices to induce relaxation and a sense of inner peace. As a result, this essential oil is also used to aid in relaxing muscles that are sore, tired, aching, or strained. It is sometimes used in products designed to provide relief for rheumatism and arthritis.

    Since the oil features a warm, spicy scent that is reminiscent of Nutmeg, Black Pepper, Camphor, and Mint, with Eucalyptus-like notes as mentioned previously. It is commonly used in aromatherapy as massage oil that is known to warm and invigorate the skin while it induces relaxation for the spirit. These capabilities make it a go-to oil for individuals who need to de-stress after busy days. It is also used to massage the abdomen in hopes of bringing relief to those women who suffer from menstrual cramps. The essential oil derived from Thymus Mastichina blends well with a number of other herbs including Camphor, Cedarwood, Cypress, Chamomile, Mandarin, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Lavender, Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang, and Orange.

    Wild Marjoram essential oil also contains high levels of cucalyptol. This results in the need to dilute this essential oil to contain a lower concentration of cucalyptol for aromatherapy purposes in order to avoid contact dermatitis, a type of skin rash. Accordingly, essential oil derived from Thymus Mastichina is also diluted for use in skin care formulas for the same reasons. The levels included in beauty formulas are carefully monitored to ensure that they are mild.

    Essential oil of Thymus Mastichina also contains a high concentration of linalools, a component that produces potent antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal capabilities when used in skin care formulations. As a result, the oil is often included in acne treatments designed to control breakouts as well as in formulations intended to control dermatitis that is being caused by infection, irritation caused by shaving, or redness and irritation resulting from sunburn. The results of a study presented at the Second World Congress on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants for Human Welfare (1999) suggest that the essential oil of Thymus Mastichina has antimicrobial capabilities against various strains of Listeria monocytogenes as well as against a strain of Staphylococcus aureus. While studies are needed to more fully explore the antioxidant benefits of Thymus Mastichina, popular belief among herbalists and the skin care industry is that they do exist. Since the essential oil of Thymus Mastichina offers a relaxing eucalyptus-like fragrance, its inclusion in scented soaps, perfumed bath oils, and overnight skin creams delivers a calming sensation. In addition to skin care products, Thymus Mastichina essential oil is blended into hair products including shampoos designed to bring relief to inflamed scalps. It has even found its way into deodorants, mouthwash, and perfumes.
