bot. Origanum majorana
Marjoram essential oil has a warm, rich, herbaceous scent. One of the essential oils recommended for children during the cold season.
Plant essential oils bring Nature's molecules to where we are lacking and, unlike synthetic fragrances, help to create an anti-stress, soothing and biologically supportive environment. This is very important for the more sensitive emerging psyche of children.

- Perfumery note: middle.
Use during cold season:
- For children, unless otherwise advised by a specialist: evaporate indoors, add when washing the house, put a couple of drops on the corner of a pillow or on a garment, dilute in vegetable oil at a ratio of 0.5-1% (e.g. 1-2 drops of essential oil to a teaspoon of almond oil), rub on the chest, soles of feet. If the essential oil is not irritating to the skin, dilute a little and apply to the pannus (not the mucous membrane).
- Babies do not need essential oils unless recommended by a specialist; they get their immunity through breast milk and aromatherapy can be used by other family members. If necessary, it is sufficient to just lightly diffuse essential oils in the room, add them when washing surfaces, and apply 1 drop to the floor away from the face. A baby's respiratory tract is very sensitive, so the smell should be barely perceptible in the room, and the rule of 'less is better' should be followed. It is safe for babies to use hydrolats – lavender, myrtle, tea tree, didramonium.
- For adults, these essential oils are also effective. Great for indoor steaming, massages, balms, inhalants, etc. When applied to the skin, it can be diluted to a higher concentration, e.g. 2 %.
