What is the Genus Species? Origanum majorana

Why is this information important? It is always important to know the genus species of a plant when using and purchasing essential oils.

There are over 30 different species of Marjoram including pot marjoram and wild marjoram. Origanum majorana is sometimes referred to as "Sweet Marjoram".

Remember, even though species may share some similar chemical constituents they are not at all the same. Therefore, just knowing the common name of a plant is usually not enough information.

It has also been reported that Thymus mastichina is often sold under the name marjoram or wild marjoram. So again, do not be confused or mislead by these companies.

Where is the Name Derived from? Origanum comes from a Greek words "oros" and "ganos" meaning "joy of the mountains".

Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it's just a fun fact!

What Part of the Plant is Used? Leaves

What is the ORAC Value:? 130,900 µTE/100g

What Does this Number Mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Spinach = 1,400; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?

It is interesting that the Greeks and the Romans associated marjoram with not only love and happiness, but also with transition through physical death.

Death is also a metaphor for transformation which is the key here. Therefore, those who are experiencing the opposite feelings such as disconnected, insecure, unsupported can transform those feelings with the assistance of marjoram oil.

As we release negative feelings and we become more balanced, we are able to accept and love ourselves more fully and restore our power to ourselves.

What Chakra is Affected? The heart and solar plexus chakras.

Have your animals smell it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in your palm, then smell. Or place a drop in your palm and pet head to toe.

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Citrus products and oils in particular. Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils! Marjoram essential oil has no known contraindications. It is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). It is approved by the FDA for use as a Food Additive (FA).

Dilution recommended for both topical and internal use. Dilute before using on sensitive areas such as the face, neck, genital area, etc.
