How to Use: Sweet Marjoram

While sweet marjoram was used historically to treat anxiety and insomnia, the uses of the aromatic dried leaves are nowadays limited to the kitchen as a delicate alternative to the more pungent oregano, Origanum vulgare. Marjoram was also used in combination with other calming herbs to promote healthy restful sleep, and the dried leaves make an excellent stuffing for sleep pillows. Sweet marjoram essential oil is used in aromatherapy for an emotional uplift and soothing nerves.
