Marjoram is a bushy herb native to Mediterranean regions. The herb has oval leaves and small white flowers and has a long tradition in culinary use and as a 'folk' remedy. It was used by the ancient Greeks in fragrances, cosmetics and medicines (its original name comes from a greek word meaning 'joy of the mountains'). It was used in mediaeval Europe too, as a 'strewing herb', and in brewing before the advent of hops. They also used it medicinally to relieve pain and promote good health.
 
Sweet Marjoram essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the herb's leaves and the flowering tops, with the main geographical sources being France, Spain, Hungary and Egypt.
