Beneficial properties of Marjoram

Origanum Majorana

To keep us healthy and beautiful


The main therapeutic properties of Marjoram depend on its components:
water, fiber, sugars, proteins, fats, ash, beta-carotene, folate, tannins, flavonoids and terpenes, mineral salts (potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, calcium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and zinc) and vitamins (A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, K and J).
Taking this long list into consideration, Marjoram can only be considered a beneficial plant for the health of the whole organism and a formidable beauty ally.
In order to fully exploit all its properties, dried flowered tops are used.
A good home method for drying Marjoram and storing it from season to season is to cut the twigs, tie them into small bunches and hang them in a well ventilated place, sheltered from direct sunlight.


Plants are our great allies, but they can interact with drugs, not suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding or for our personal sensibilities.

It is therefore always advisable to ask the suggestion of a professional.

Essential Oils, in the majority of cases, must be used diluted in carrier oils or with other vegetal substances.

As it treats of essences, they can also be irritating, especially for particularly sensitive people.
