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.

Adding just 5 drops to a warm bath brings welcome stimulation to sore, stiff and overworked muscles and will put you to sleep like a baby. 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.
Blend with a Carrier Oil, such as Olive, Canola or Grapeseed Oil; a 5% dilution works great. Use this oil in salad dressings, sauces and savory dishes.
Singers and speakers have valued Marjoram’s ability to preserve the health of their voices. Try making your own ‘Marjoram honey’ by adding 3-6 drops – according to your liking – to 1oz. of honey. Add the honey to a steaming hot cup of tea, and enjoy.
