Marjoram Essential Oil – Uses & Benefits

A focus on Marjoram. Marjoram is one of my favourites essential oils now. It wasn’t what I as expecting, to me it has a Floral herb scent. It’s calming properties supported my sleep & helped give me a sense of peace.

Oil of the week – This year I’m choosing an oil a week to focus on trying different ways of using it. I’m choosing oils which I haven’t used a lot. It works well with my Intentional living – using what I have, getting more value from what I have & going deeper with things.
