The ancient Romans and the Greeks termed marjoram the “joy of the mountains”; the herb even symbolized happiness. Known also as “wintersweet,” marjoram has long been used to flavor cuisine, especially sauces, dressings, and stews. The Germans used it traditionally when roasting geese, so commonly so that they deemed it the “goose herb.” Marjoram’s traditional therapeutic uses include supporting gastrointestinal health and skin purification, particularly in Austrian medicine. Its more recent therapeutic applications include supporting the nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. The scent is calming and, moreover, topical application can help relax tense and tired muscles.
