Reminiscent of fresh aromas of the Mediterranean, sweet marjoram (Origanum majorana) essential oil offers many of the same soothing benefits of lavender without the potent floral aroma. Instead, its aroma is gentle, sweet and herbaceous.
Aura Cacia Organic Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil comes from Egypt. It is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves, stems and flowers.
What’s the difference between organic sweet marjoram essential oil and conventional sweet marjoram essential oil?
Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Our manufacturing facility and all of our organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Soothing, warming and relaxing, sweet marjoram essential oil is comprised mainly of the constituents sabinene, a-terpinene, y-terpinene, p-cymene, terpinolene and linalool.
Good for the body and mind, sweet marjoram is useful for body and massage oils as well as perfumes, steam diffusions, and room sprays and diffusions. Its calming properties make it great for evening and nighttime.
Sweet marjoram essential oil blends well with basil, bergamot, black pepper, cedarwood, chamomile, lavender, orange and peppermint.
Sweet marjoram is generally considered a middle note.
