• Support for symptoms of Memory Loss, stomach discomfort, indigestion, coughs, colds and more.
Marjoram is grown throughout the world and is often made into a tea or used in cooking. Marjoram Leaf tastes similar to Oregano and can be used in its stead when a milder taste is called for. Marjoram is a member of the Labiatae family of plants, which includes Oregano, Basil, Thyme, Hyssop, Lavender, and Sage.

Externally, Marjoram leaves can be ground into a paste and can be used to help support joint pain and for sprains. The leaves can be made into an oil for support of toothache pain. Marjoram Leaf has also been shown to be highly effective in supporting skin irritations. Marjoram tea can be used to support stomach pain and indigestion, and to help support cold and coughs and colds such as coughing, sore throat, and respiratory distress.

Marjoram Leaf also has antioxidant properties. Research has noted Marjoram Leaf's anti-infective qualities. In England, Marjoram Leaf can be used to help support colic in infants and used to help support indigestion, where its actions are similar to Peppermint. Marjoram Leaf can also be tried to help support amenorrhea and as a mild diuretic. Currently, research is being conducted on Marjoram Leaf as a possible aid in fighting memory loss.

Medicinal Usage

Carminative, diaphoretic, antispasmodic, and diuretic properties have been attributed to marjoram. In laboratory experiments, extracts of marjoram have been reported to act as a disinfectant. The oil can be used to help support toothache, and marjoram was once used to help support immunity issues.

The essential oil contains terpinenes, sabinene, linalool, carvacrol, cis-sabinene hydrate, trans-sabinene hydrate and over forty other components. Cis-sabinene hydrate is responsible for sweet marjoram's typical fragrance. The leaves contain up to 13 percent protein and are high in vitamins A and C.

General Herb Information

Marjoram is a tender, bushy perennial which must be grown as an annual in most parts of the United States. It reaches a height of two feet and is smooth or hairy. The leaves are one-fourth to one inch long, oval, entire, with short petioles on the lower leaves, and sessile upper leaves. The veins are somewhat raised. The spikelets are borne in terminal panicles on short branches. Each spikelet is one-fourth to one-half inch long. The bracts are small, rounded, and glistening with oil glands. The calyx has one lip with a deep slot down one side. One-eighth-inch long flowers are white, pale lilac or pink. Marjoram, native to north Africa and southwest Asia, and naturalized in southern Europe, blooms in late summer.

Marjoram is easily propagated by seeds sown in the spring or by summer cuttings. Winter indoors in pots and replant in spring after danger of frost has passed.

A light, fairly rich, well-drained, slightly alkaline soil (pH 7 to 8) in full sun is favorable.

Harvest as soon as blooming commences. It dries easily.

Marjoram is sweeter, somewhat more piquant than oregano. It's great with tomato dishes, meats, onions, brussels sprouts, and mushrooms, and is a pleas- ant surprise in salads.

MARJORAM (Origanum vulgare), native to southern Europe, has been used since Roman times to give spice and flavor to meats and sauces. Before hop beer was invented, marjoram was used in the brewing of beer and ale. In medieval times, marjoram was considered a powerful charm against witchcraft and marjoram wine a potent antiseptic.

Sweet or knotted marjoram is highly perfumed and has thick trusses of dainty, white, pale mauve, or purple flowers, which make it one of the most decorative plants in the herb garden. It also represents good value since the leaves dry or freeze well for culinary use, and the flowers maybe dried for long-lasting arrangements or potpourri.

History

Sweet marjoram has been cultivated since ancient times. It is a native of central Europe, where it was grown for its many health uses.

Characteristics

The plant grows to about 10 inches high, with a spread of 8 inches. The stems are tough, woody, and inclined to be straggly, while the dark gray-green leaves are oval and up to ¾ inch long. The flowers are minute but plentiful, and are borne in clusters around the stem. They are produced from green pea-like buds known as "knots," which give the plant its alternative name.

Growing Tips

The plant prefers a moist, fertile soil in a sunny position that is sheltered from wind. Sow seed in late spring when there is no risk of frost. To aid germination, which in cold soil can take a month, it is a good idea to warm the soil first by protecting it with cloches.

How to Use

Add fresh leaves to casseroles just before serving to retain the full flavor. They can also be used in sauces, stuffings, sparingly in salads, in egg and cheese dishes, and in fruit salads.

Sleep is one of the greatest aids to good looks and a herb pillow well stuffed with marjoram will ensure a good night's rest. An infusion of the leaves and flowers or a few drops of essential oil added to rosewater is a delightful skin toner. The exceptionally aromatic essential oil can also be used in bath and massage oils to combat tiredness.

A few drops massaged into the scalp gives dry hair a gloss and helps reduce hair loss.

Marjoram, Common
Origanum vulgare
(Wild Marjoram or Oregano; Knotted Marjoram: Origanum marjorana)

Medicinal Usage

Valued as something of a herb with many uses, marjoram was prescribed for indigestion, insomnia, earache, loss of appetite, dropsy and many other ailments. The leaves and flowers were made into an aromatic tea to stimulate digestion, support flatulence, soothe nerves, support colds and headaches, and promote menstruation. Dried and powdered, the leaves were used as a snuff to clear nasal congestion. Externally, marjoram was used to help support pain, stings, bruises and rheumatic swellings. Gerard recommended the leaves boiled in water for "such as are given to overmuch sighing."

Culinary Usage

A sweet and savoury pot-herb with a wide range of flavouring uses, marjoram was added to salads, soups, sauces, stuffings, stews and meat dishes. It was also used to flavour beer and other alcoholic drinks.

Miscellaneous

A native of Mediterranean regions, oregano was introduced into Britain by the Romans, who, like the Greeks, considered it to signify peace and happiness. As well as being worn by bridal couples, the herb was used to scent winding sheets, and was planted on graves to ensure that the dead rested in blessed peace. Its botanical name Origanum is derived from the Greek for 'joy of the mountain'. Medieval monks grew oregano in their gardens not only for its usefulness, but for its fragrance and decoration. Sweet marjoram was introduced into England during the Middle Ages. Valued as a preserving and disinfecting herb, marjoram was strewn on floors, and included in pot-pourri, cosmetics and perfumes. The scented leaves were used to polish furniture. The plant yields a reddish-purple dye, and is particularly favoured by bees.

General Herb Information

Marjoram - Four useful marjorams, Pot Marjoram (Marjorana onites), Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare), Sweet Marjoram (M. hortensis) and Showy Marjoram (O. puichellum) are perennials but in cold climates Sweet Marjoram has to be considered as an annual; they may be used as culinary seasonings but Sweet is most fragrant, though Pot, as its name indicates, is widely used. Wild is used mostly for health purposes.

Propagation: By seed; Sweet and Pot are very slow to germinate; Wild and Showy self-sow freely; by root division and by cuttings of hardy varieties in spring.

Nature of Plant: Sweet or Knotted Marjoram is an erect little bush, narrow leaves, white flowers, and green bracts; grown for leaves to be used in the kitchen but is a delightful plant for the fragrant garden; it is not spreading.

Wild Marjoram grows to a leafy bush, about 2 1/2 feet high, with pale pink flowers in loose clusters; its oval leaves are broader than those of other varieties, about 1/8 inch across and 1/2 inch long.

Pot Marjoram is about 1 1/2 feet high and is inclined to sprawl and layer itself, soon forming a beautiful mound; flower clusters and bracts are purplish and suitable for flower arrangements.

Showy Marjoram is most decorative for the garden, with broad yellow-green leaves and pink flower clusters; it forms a round little bush about 16 inches high completely covered with foliage.

Spacing of Mature Plants: Sweet 10 inches, others 15 inches.

Cultural Requirements: All varieties should be planted in light, medium rich, chalky soil, average dry in full sun. Sweet Marjoram seedlings require shade until well started; since all varieties are slow growing, they require frequent weeding and cultivation.
