Essential oils from herbs play a large role in Qi Drop Therapy. One of those is Marjoram (Origanum majorana). The EO is distilled from the leaves and flowers of this herb. It comes from the botanical family Labiatae, which includes other herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, and basil. Many of the plants connected to the Labiatae family are useful in treating muscle aches and pains.

Marjoram aids in muscle relaxation, helping reduce muscle spasms. It is soothing for muscle aches, arthritis, and sprains. Being antispasmodic, marjoram is helpful with calming spasms caused by asthma, bronchitis, or a dry cough. It also inhibits your sex drive so it may not be something you want to use in a large quantity or frequently. Marjoram EO is calming and grounding and can help treat insomnia, or tension and stress related to nerves.

Remember EOs should generally be used with a carrier oil or lotion and not straight from the bottle. Consult an aromatherapist or naturopath for the best way any EO can help you.
