Uses

  • to calm the nervous system and ease tension.
  • to promote a healthy cardiovascular and immune system.
  • for relieving aching muscles.
The Marjoram plant
Marjoram is a perennial herb with sweet pine and citrus flavours. Although it is closely related to oregano, marjoram has a more delicate flavour so is more likely to be used fresh. Oregano leaves are usually dried before use in cooking. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves.

About Materia Aromatica

Materia Aromatica supplies oils essential oils harvested by growers and distillers of organic crops, buying as much as possible from smaller farms or family enterprises. This has the advantage that these farmers distil their own freshly harvested materials themselves. They carry out steam distillation on a small scale at low pressure in stainless steel tanks to maximise the essential oils’ therapeutic value and to retain the individuality and life force of the crops from which they originate. Every batch of oil is dated, numbered and tested to ensure the quality of the oil.

Prices

Oils from organically grown or wild-crafted crops are generally more expensive, as the term itself is a guarantee of purity and wholeness. Organically grown crops must adhere to strict guidelines so the oils are sold in their pure form, without dilution or the addition of any synthetic oils. Picking, carried out by hand in the wild, requiring extra labour, is time consuming and costly. This explains the price variations between two oils of the same species such as Materia Aromatica’s organic and wild varieties of Lavandula angustifolia.
