Origanum majorana is a small bushy perennial plant that grows to an average height of 2 ft, with clusters or ‘knots’ of small greyish-white flowers. It is suggested that the name Marjoram, came from Old French “Marjorane” with Medieval Latin “majorana”. Often referred to as Sweet Marjoram. The leaves are collected for steam distillation when in full bloom, several times a year. The color of the oil is pale yellow to pale amber. Marjoram Marjorana Sweet Essential Oil has warm, woody, spicy, camphor-like aroma.
