Oil of the month – Marjorum

Friday, September 6th, 2013

Marjorum was known as the “herb of happiness” to the Romans and “joy of the mountains” to the Greeks.  It was believed to increase longevity. I usually use this oil daily with my clients, not with my prenatal massage clients though.   It works wonderfully with Basil on contracted muscles or active spasms – I often use a hot moist pack on top of layering the oils as this oil is known as a warm oil and will comfortably warm the area that it is applied to.

Extraction Method/Origin ; Steam distilled from the leaves/ France

Medical Properties; Antibacterial, antifungal, lowers blood pressure, promotes intestinal peristalsis, expectorant.

For info on quality oils – have a look at Young Livings website – a wealth of information
