Source: Origanum majorama originated in Asia but is now grown all over Europe and cultivated for oil in Tunisia, Morocco, Germany, Hungary and Egypt. Ours is sourced from India.

Extraction: Sweet Marjoram essential oil is obtained by steam distillation from the dried flowering heads of the shrub.

Aroma: Sweet Marjoram essential oil has a spicy, peppery, camphor and thyme-like scent.

Fragrance note: Middle.
