Botanical Name: Origanum majorana

A close relative to oregano without all the volatile oils, marjoram provides a different, gentler mouth feel, perfect for recipes calling for a delicate herbal spice. Origanum majorana, also called sweet marjoram, is a culinary herb in the mint family and can be used as a substitute for Mediterranean oregano. Marjoram is traditionally steeped as tea for its wellness supporting properties and can also be infused in oil, applied externally, and even used in herbal baths.

Marjoram is a culinary herb in the mint family. It needs a hot climate to develop its full aroma, but it loses some of its flavor when it is dried. Marjoram goes well with thyme, bay leaves, black pepper, and juniper berries. Marjoram is a Greek word meaning "Joy of the Mountain". According to Greek myth, Aphrodite said that the smell of marjoram was the smell of impending good luck. Greeks also believed that if it was growing on a grave, it was a sign that the departed soul had found happiness. Throughout the middle ages it was worn by bridal couples to signify love, honor, and happiness. It was used in England for many years as an ingredient in snuff, then as a somewhat exotic flavoring for beer.
