Wild Marjoram essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tips of Thymus mastichina which is known as 'Wild' or 'Spanish' Marjoram. Contrary to its name, this bushy herb is actually a wild-growing species of Thyme, native to Spain. It should not be confused with Sweet Marjoram, extracted from Origanum majorana, which has a completely different chemical composition. Wild Marjoram contains a high amount of cineole (eucalyptol) which gives it a stronger, more medicinal aroma.
Wild Marjoram was originally used in herbal medicine by the ancient Greeks. In modern day aromatherapy, it is used for its analgesic, antispasmodic, antiseptic, anti-fungal, decongestant, mucolytic and sedative properties.
