Description

Also known as “wintersweet” or “joy of the mountains,” Marjoram was known to the Greeks and Romans as a symbol of happiness. Commonly recognised for its ability to spice foods, Majoram essential oil is a unique cooking additive. The herbaceous flavouring of Marjoram oil can be used in soups, stews, dressings, and sauces. In Germany, this herb is known as the “Goose Herb” for its traditional use in roasting geese.
