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.
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.
1/2 oz., 1 oz., and 2 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.
We are currently transitioning to a smudge proof label for our essential oils. If ordering more than one oil you may receive both types of labels as we make this transition. Our new labels are a poly-base and printed in full color in-house.
