Essential Oils are the fragrant essences of plants in their purest, most concentrated state. Steam distilled, cold pressed or CO2 extracted, these Essential Oils are the plant’s soul, extracted to bring The Essence of “Well-being” into your life. They are highly potent extracts that have been referred to by Ayurvedic medicine as “liquid sun energy”.
Aromaland has been supplying the world with Essential Oils since 1986 and is known for their huge selection and dedication to quality. The characteristics of Essential Oils can vary like wine. Depending on the species, the location, the ground and weather conditions, the environmental circumstances and the expertise and care given by the farmer and distiller, the oil of the same plant can vary strongly from supplier to supplier. When you order from Aromaland you know you are getting the best quality in the world and not a commercial grade essential oil.

Latin Name:Thymus mastichina, Thyme cineole type.

Suggested Use:Add 3-6 drops of Aromaland’s Tranquillite Blend (which contains Marjoram) to 1oz. of unscented massage oil or lotion to massage sore, aching muscles.
Adding just 5 drops to a warm bath brings welcome stimulation to sore, stiff and overworked muscles. Also try our Calming, Take Five and Tranquillite Blends (which contain Marjoram) for this purpose. In order to prevent the oils from floating on the surface, blend the Essential Oil with some Half & Half, honey, vinegar or Aromaland’s Coconut Emulsifier before adding it to the water.
For most applications – like cooking, diffusion etc. – Sweet Marjoram is recommended.
History:This Marjoram is actually wild growing Thyme. However, since it is commonly referred to as Wild Marjoram, we’ll continue this tradition.
