INCI Name: Thymus Mastichina Flower/Herb Oil
Native to the Iberian Peninsula of Portugal and Spain, Spanish Marjoram is a wild growing Mediterranean herb, popular with herbalists the world over. Its appearance is actually more similar to Thyme than Marjoram, which is reflected in the plant's botanical name: Thymus Mastichina.
Traditionally used in Spain and Portugal as an infusion to ease coughs, colds and influenza, Spanish Marjoram as an essential oil is used in a plethora of immune boosting treatments. When blended in a carrier oil and massaged on to the chest, Spanish Marjoram Oil will help to boost circulation and strengthen immunity to common coughs and colds - perfect during the winter months. Along with helping to ease unwanted muscle spasms (anti-inflammatory), Spanish Marjoram Essential Oil is helpful for reducing minor pain and inflammation (analgesic) as well as reducing the presence of unwelcome bacteria or fungal growth (anti-bacterial). Mastic Thyme Essential Oil's pungent and herbal fragrance has a fortifying effect on the mind and if used in steam inhalation or a diffuser, will help to energise and lift lethargy.
Emotionally and energetically, this gorgeously aromatic Thymus mastichina Essential Oil is grounding and calming. It also has a calming and soothing effect that helps reduce nervousness and relieves anxiety and depression. Spanish Marjoram Oil also helps promote restful sleep, making it ideal for people who suffer from insomnia.
