We are talking about the empowerment of Marjoram.

Marjoram’s benefits:

  • Valued for its calming properties and positive effect on the nervous system*

  • Supports a healthy immune system*

  • May promote a healthy cardiovascular system*

  • Assists individuals who are unable to trust others or from meaningful relationships.***

  • Reveals the barriers individuals have formed to protect themselves from others.***

Marjoram’s uses:

  • Add to a soothing massage blend for targeting tired, stressed muscles.

  • Apply to the back of the neck to lessen feelings of stress.

  • Use Marjoram essential oil in your next recipe that calls for dried Marjoram. Usually one drop of essential oil is equivalent to two teaspoons of dried herbs.

  • Apply to muscles before and after exercising.

  • Blends with Lavender and Rosemary.

  • Apply to a fussy child’s feet prior to a nap.

Author Louise Hay states, ”when we as women learn to take care of ourselves in a positive way, to have self-respect and self-worth, life for all human beings, including men, will have taken a quantum leap in the right direction. There will be respect and love between the sexes and both men and women will honor each other. We will learn that there is plenty for everyone and that we can bless and prosper each other.“

Hay, Louise. Empowering Women – Every Woman’s Guide to Successful Living. Hay House, 1999.
