16 Manfaat & Efek Samping Marjoram Essential Oil (Minyak Marjoram)


Marjoram, disebut juga sweet marjoram (Origanum majorana), memiliki hubungan kekerabatan dengan oregano (Origanum vulgaris).

Marjoram memiliki kesamaan dengan oregano, tetapi juga mempunyai sifat uniknya sendiri.

Kedua tanaman ini berasal dari daerah Mediterania. Dalam sejarah Yunani, marjoram adalah simbol kebahagiaan yang disebut “the joy of the mountains.”

Di budaya Yunani, marjoram digunakan dalam upacara-upacara penting dalam siklus kehidupan, seperti pernikahan serta kematian.

Marjoram memiliki manfaat penyembuhan luas, termasuk efektif digunakan untuk meredakan nyeri, sakita kepala dan memberi bantuan pada pencernaan.

Karena dapat digunakan sebagai emmenagogue (meringankan nyeri dan gejala menstruasi), marjoram tidak boleh digunakan pada wanita hamil.

Marjoram Essential Oil

Marjoram Essential Oil

Aromatically speaking, I have a huge regret. When I first became interested in essential oils back in the 1990s, I didn’t pay as much attention to Marjoram Essential Oil as I should have. Over the years since then, Marjoram Oil has proven itself to me time and time again as a wonderfully helpful essential oil for aches, pain relief, minor respiratory complaints, emotional support, stress, anxiety, loss and grief.

Aromatically, Marjoram Essential Oil has a beautiful, herbal aroma that I find blends well with a lot of other essential oils including but not limited to lavenderclary sageroseneroligrapefruit, and numerous others. I’m in a somewhat “floral” mood at the moment, so that is where my mind is going in this list. Don’t let my current floral fixation deter you from using Marjoram Essential Oil in blends that incorporate other essential oils.

Marjoram Essential Oil is quite balancing to the body and the mind. Emotionally, Marjoram Oil is helpful for use with stress, anxiety and grief.

I love how Robbi Zeck describes Marjoram Essential Oil: Marjoram’s warm herbal aroma will strengthen your nervous system, rebuild your reserve, fortify your spirit and reduce obsessive thinking. [Robbi Zeck, ND, The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation (Victoria, Australia: Aroma Tours, 2008), 96.]

Marjoram essential oil plays an essential role as an emmenagogue, expectorant, fungicidal, hypotensive, laxative, nervine, sedative, stomachic, vasodilator, and a vulnerary substance for keeping you healthy.

What is Marjoram Essential Oil?

Marjoram essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of both fresh and dried leaves of the marjoram plant (Origanum majorana). It is also known as knotted marjoram. It is a plant that belongs to the Mediterranean region and has been well-known for its medicinal uses for many years. The main components of marjoram oil are sabinene, alpha-terpinene, gamma terpinene, cymene, terpinolene, linalool, sabinene hydrate, linalyl acetate, terpineol, and gamma terpineol.

Reduces Pain

Marjoram oil reduces the pain associated with colds, fevers, inflammation, overexertion of muscles, toothaches, and headaches. The best thing about this is that it does not have any adverse side effects, unlike other analgesic pain relievers available on the market.

Relieves Spasms

Marjoram essential oil is helpful in curing nearly all types of spasms and related problems. It efficiently relieves spasms in the respiratory system, intestines, and muscular spasms in the limbs. It also helps palliate convulsions, pulled muscles, cramps, and spasmodic cholera that are caused by uncontrollable spasms.

Controls Sexual Desires

Marjoram essential oil acts as an anaphrodisiac and helps suppress or control sexual desires. This property is beneficial for those who are suffering from abnormal and extreme sexual urges.

Prevents Sepsis

The antiseptic properties of marjoram oil make it a good application for both external and internal wounds. It also functions well as an ingredient in antiseptic lotions and creams. This protects the wounds against becoming septic and developing tetanus.

 

Mitigate Infections

Furthermore, it can be effective in curing infections caused by viruses and ailments associated with them, such as the common cold, influenza, mumps, measles, and even pox.

Prevents Bacterial Infections

Marjoram oil kills bacteria, so it can protect you from food poisoning, typhoid, malaria, colic, and bacterial infections in the colon, skin, digestive system, urinary tract, and other parts of the excretory system.

Improves Cognitive Function

Marjoram oil is very good for the functioning of your brain. This quality also relieves you of headaches.

Cordial Effect

Marjoram oil has a warming effect on the body and it improves circulation to increase the blood flow, further warming your cells. This property helps get rid of coughs and excess phlegm, while simultaneously relieving the pain of arthritis and rheumatism.

 

Promotes Sweating

Marjoram oil promotes perspiration and keeps you healthy by aiding in the removal of toxins, sodiumsalts, and excess water from the body. This also helps bring down fevers and helps you lose weight since urine is composed of 4% fat approximately.

Facilitates Digestion

Marjoram oil promotes digestion by stimulating the secretion of digestive juices like gastric juices, acids, and bile in the stomach, while its aroma alone can stimulate the salivary glands and thus aid in the primary digestion of food. Lastly, it stimulates the peristaltic movement of the intestines and helps the ingested food to advance through the digestive tract, thereby facilitating digestion and regular bowel movements.

Aids in Gas Troubles

Marjoram essential oil can efficiently handle any gas trouble you may have. It provides the gases a safe downward passage by relaxing the muscles in the abdominal region and also stops further gas from forming. This help gets rid of a number of problems such as indigestion, nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, chest pain, hypertension, and excessive flatulence. Sometimes, the inner lining of the stomach becomes corroded due to prolonged acidity and can result in the formation of gastric ulcers. This happens due to a lack of bile, which neutralizes the acids. Marjoram oil can help you avoid this situation as well since it maintains those proper secretions in the stomach.

Promotes Urination

Marjoram oil increases the frequency of urination, thus helping remove excess water, sodium, uric acid, bile salts, and other toxic elements from the body. Increased urination also lowers blood pressure, cleans kidneys, and reduces fat. If you are not suffering from swelling or accumulation of water in the body, you should drink more water if you are taking marjoram oil. This is because frequent urination can lead to dehydration, which is also quite dangerous for your health.

 

Reduces Hormonal Issues

Ladies who have problems with irregular, obstructed or painful menstruation can benefit from the emmenagogue property of marjoram oil. Not only does it help clear menses and make them regular, it also provides relief from other symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome or PMS such as a headache, pain in the abdominal area, dizziness, and mood swings. Finally, marjoram oil can also help prevent untimely or premature menopause from setting in. Also, there have been studies, which claim that marjoram essential oil can treat PCOS and infertility in women. [1]

Controls Diabetes

Marjoram essential oil inhibits the growth of the enzyme protein tyrosine phosphate 1B (PTP1B), as per a research published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry in 2014. This enzyme is known to negatively impact the insulin levels, thereby affecting the blood sugar levels. Hence, marjoram oil is a great choice for diabetics who are looking for options that help control diabetes. [2]

Natural Expectorant

Marjoram essential oil has been shown to be quite effective at giving relief from the deposition of mucus and phlegm in the throat and sinuses, as well as congestion of the nasal tract, larynx, pharynx, bronchi, and lungs due to colds and viral infections. It is particularly effective in chronic coughing.

Gives Relief from Fungal Infections

It inhibits the growth of fungus and helps cure infections caused by them. This property of marjoram essential oil helps treat a number of skin diseases and conditions like dysentery, which are all often caused by a dangerous growth of fungus.

Speeds-up Healing

Marjoram essential oil acts as a vulnerary by promoting the quick healing of wounds, both external and internal, and protecting them from infections.

Relieves Stress

Marjoram oil induces a calming, relaxing, and sedative effect on both the mind and body while relieving nervous stress and anxiety. It also generates a happy feeling in times of anger or sadness. This property can be helpful to pacify people who have suffered some sort of shock, trauma, or a major setback in life.

Nervine

It strengthens the entire nervous system, tones it, and keeps you active while protecting you from various nervous disorders.

Acts as a Vasodilator

This is a very important medicinal property of marjoram oil and can be a blessing for those who are at high risk of heart attacks, atherosclerosis, or brain hemorrhaging due to hypertension. As a vasodilator, it widens and relaxes the blood vessels, eases the flow of blood, and reduces blood pressure, thereby lessening the strain on the entire cardiovascular system. It helps reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and brain hemorrhaging.

Other Benefits

This powerful essential oil helps treat and control headaches, sinusitis, cold, bronchitis, asthma, stress, insomnia, pain in muscles and joints, and fatigue.
