It is the sweet, nourishing, and balancing quality of Sweet Marjoram that associates Marjoram primarily with the Earth Element. Whenever the Earth Element is depleted or under stress, worry and over-thinking can take hold. There may be, in addition, feelings of real or imagined emotional deprivation - the idea that “no one cares”. Regardless of whether the person is truly isolated or not, they tend to see themselves as lonely and unsupported, easily feeling denied both warmth and affection.
Relaxing, warming, and comforting, Sweet Marjoram essential oil addresses itself to each aspect of this psychological picture. It helps to calm obsessive thinking, ease emotional craving, and promote the capacity for inner self-nurturing. In its ancient role as a funeral herb, it can help us to accept any deep loss, especially when combined with oils of Cypress and Rose.
As an herb of love, it nourishes the place from where neediness springs, helping to restore our power to give; it is a distillation of Mother Earth’s compassion. Sweet Marjoram is one of the main essential oils that possess an ability to both strengthen and relax.
It has very distinct antispasmodic and analgesic properties.
