Oregano/Wild Marjoram/Origan/Marjolaine Sauvage - Origanum Vulgare
A native Mediterranean plant, high in antioxidants. A useful sedative for calming the nerves and anxiety. A tonic and diuretic herb that helps clear the system of toxins and aid a sluggish liver. A gargle will help mouth infections and sore throat, in tea it soothes chills, colds and flu. A poultice reduces swellings and sprains and finally an inhalation can relieve both migraine and a stuffy nose.
I’m collecting wild marjoram at the moment to make Four Thieves Oil.
