Marjoram Essential Oil – Origanum majorana – or Sweet Marjoram, is steam distilled from the aromatic fresh and dried leaves of the Marjoram herb. It is a herb which grows in many parts of the world but like its close relative Oregano, is specifically well connected to the Mediterranean highland region where it produces the best and most widely used essential oil in the cooler climate.
