Marjoram oil? What is it used for and how do I use it?

Written by Lisa Moyle, Vital Fit Club intern

Marjoram (Origanum majorana), one of the calming Young Living Essential oils, has a woody, spicy aroma. It is has a warming effect on both the mind and body and, it soothes tense muscles after a hard work out. And it is beneficial for occasional nervous tension.


I also love to cook with marjoram and it is one of the key oils in the Raindrop Technique Massage, which you can read about by clicking on the following link:


Here are some other ways I love to use the Marjoram Essential Oil:

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on a specific location (I like to use it for muscle pain)
  • Apply to chakras/vita-flex points
  • Use a couple drops of marjoram essential oil to coconut oil and use for massage sore muscles
  • Directly inhale from the bottle
  • Diffuse
  • As a dietary supplement
  • Cooking, it is great with turkey and chicken or with veggies

Here’s a great recipe to try with your Marjoram Oil (Compliments of

Cheese sauce for veggies
