Marjoram, coupled with cardamom, is a staple when I need respiratory support.  I diffuse it at night to encourage clear airways as I sleep.  I should note that the first day I know I need it, I diffuse during the day because it can help relax the respiratory effects at night.

It’s powerful and great to use topically with clary sage and lemongrass during the menses.  Because of my experience here, I have added it to topical blends for people who are starting exercise regimes to help with muscular support.  It goes over well.  Marjoram essential oil is warming and soothing to overworked muscles.

On occasion, I enjoy a soothing bath.  I mix a couple of drops of lavender and a couple of drops of marjoram in a bit of body wash, then mix that with epsom salts and add it all to running bath water.  You’ll love it . . . but don’t try it in a tub that has jets.  I worry about the tubes to the jets being cleaned out and a friend of mine has suffered terribly twice over using essential oils with no type of carrier for them to bind to in her jacuzzi.  The power of the jets slamming the essential oil into the skin just doesn’t bid well to your skin.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Marjoram Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, there are no known hazards or contraindications.  Marjoram essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Marjoram essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
