Aroma

Bright and camphoraceous with a strong medicinal quality that has a very dry base note and slightly sweet middle note. This long lasting aroma is tenacious and powerful.

Overview

Despite its common name Spanish marjoram, this oil is distilled from a flowering plant in the Thymus genus. Its major constituents include 1,8-cineole, camphor, and α- and β-pinene. With its bright powerful scent, Spanish marjoram makes a nice addition to topical salves and stimulating diffuser blends.

It should not be used interchangeable with sweet marjoram. These oils have different key constituents. Spanish marjoram can be used in similar ways as other 1,8-cineole rich oils like eucalyptus and rosemary.

Packaging

1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Blends Well With

Citrus oils like sweet orange and tangerine, other spice oils, including basil, thyme, and black pepper, forest needle oils, and floral oils like lavender, clary sage, and chamomile.
