Marjoram Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Home / Wellness / Marjoram Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

I recently saw a video where Frankincense and Marjoram essential oils were applied to an elderly woman’s tired, achy hands. She experienced immediate relief and was opening and closing her hands with excitement.

In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans viewed Marjoram as a symbol of happiness. It is also known as “wintersweet” or “joy of the mountains.” Marjoram has both culinary uses and health benefits.


Practical uses for Marjoram essential oil:

  • Apply for targeting tired, stressed muscles.
  • Apply to the back of the neck to lessen feelings of stress.
  • Use in your next recipe that calls for dried Marjoram.
  • One drop of essential oil is equivalent to two teaspoons of dried herbs.
  • Apply to muscles before and after exercising.
  • Blends well with lavender and rosemary.
  • Apply to a fussy child’s feet prior to a nap.
Emotionally, Marjoram essential oil is The Oil of Connection. Marjoram assists an individual in increasing their warmth and trust in social situations.

Marjoram is also found in the Massage blend and the Tension blend.

Have you used Marjoram?


Essential Oil Quality: The essential oil industry is not a regulated industry which means it’s difficult to know which brands you can trust to be truly 100% pure therapeutic grade and safe for your whole family. I did my research to find a brand I can trust. If you want to learn about the brand I personally use or order essential oils for your home, please email
