Marjoram essential oil is one of the oils traditionally used in the Raindrop Technique®.  All too often people keep this essential oil with their Raindrop kit and only pull it out when they are doing a Raindrop.

Lets see what other ways you can use Marjoram for and how it supports us as a Raindrop oil.


A little bit about Marjoram Essential Oil:

Marjoram’s Latin name is Origanum majrorana and this plant is in the Lamiaceae or mint family.

Marjoram essential oil generally contains:

  • 26-60% monoterpenes – so if you follow the PMS theory, that lets us know that it support bringing out the correct information in DNA.
  • 9-30% alcohols – it also does supports cleansing a bit.

In the Essential Oils Integrative Medical Guide it states that Marjoram Essential oil:
Supports blood pressure, is soothing to muscles, supports the digestive system and supports the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS).  When you think of the Parasympathetic Nervous System, think of how your body feels when you are at peace; slow heart beat, good digestion, slower breathing.


Fragrant Influences of Marjoram Essential Oil:

Every essential oil has a physical support and a Fragrant Influence.
The Fragrant Influence of Marjoram is:
 Assists in calming nerves

This makes sense to me, as Marjoram support the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), which we know is the nervous system that is that peaceful state.


The History of Marjoram Essential Oil:

Marjoram was called the “Herb of Happiness” by Romans and it was also known as the “Joy of the Mountains” to the Greeks.
This plant was also believed to increase longevity.

Now that we know that Marjoram Essential Oils supports the PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System) then the Romans and Greeks totally have the right name for this herb!


More good points about Marjoram:

A few comments about Marjoram Essential oil found in Medical Aromatherapy, Kurt Schnaubelt.
“It is effective yet soft enough for children. This oil is not produced on a large scale. If searched out carefully from genuine aromatherapy suppliers, it’s normally okay.”


Emotional Release with Marjoram Essential Oil:

One of my favorite books is Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils by Carolyn Mein, D.C.  The chart in her books give this emotional information about Marjoram.

  • Emotional aspect:  “Unfulfilled”
  • Opposite emotion:  “Awareness”
  • Affirmation: “I am aware of who I am”
  • Location Posterior Fontanel: Right above occipital bone.

Experiences with Marjoram

I asked the members in Adapting Raindrop FB group to share some of their experiences with Marjoram Essential Oil, besides using it in Raindrop and here are some of their comments:

  • Tanya stated she “Add this [Marjoram] to aroma siez® in a roller for all things muscular”
  • Sarah said “What my p.t. used for plantar facitis during my therapy.”
  • Nana shared “When I had chronic pancreatitis the spasms and pain were horrendous! I learned the reflex point on my foot for the pancreas and began applying marjoram. It really helped my body to relax and respond to the other healing modalities I did. I love marjoram.”

I see a trend, how about you?

Are you now going to use this oil more now, instead of just in Raindrop
Do you have an experience with Marjoram Essential Oil you’d like to share?
