Marjoram is usually that weird spice most people don’t use in their spice rack. But the medicinal properties of this great herb should not be overlooked.
Originally from France and Egypt, Marjoram has been knows as the “herb of happiness” to the Romans and the “joy of themountains” to the Greeks. It soothes muslces and alleviates joint discomfort. It’s antibacterial, antifungal, and can lower blood pressure. It can help with digestive issues by promoting peristaltic contractions in your intestines, the contractions that make your digestive system work and break down food. It also helps with coughing. It has been used to help with arthritis, headaches, and infections. And it assists in calming the nerves, which we all need.
You can apply it with a carrier oil to a specific sore muscle or joint, add it to your bath, or diffuse it in your home.
