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: https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/essential-oils/singles/marjoram-essential-oil
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
- 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 http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/cheese-sauce-for-veggies):
Cheese sauce for veggies
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons evaporated milk
- 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
- 2 drops (or to taste) Marjoram Young Living Essential Oil
- Dash to 1/8 teaspoon curry powder
In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until the cheese is melted. Serve warm over broccoli or other cooked vegetables. Yield: 1-1/2 cups.
