Herb of the Month: Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare)

Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare) has been used since ancient times as a remedy for poisonings with narcotics. One of the features of this plant that enables such a detoxification is that it is a “diaphoretic” which means that it will cause sweating. It is also a carminative, which is used for control of gassiness in the gut. And it is mildly stimulant, although not nearly so strongly as coffee or black tea (Camellia sinensis).

Marjoram has been used to return menses to a woman who has stopped menstruating, and it is has been used as a poultice to relieve toothache.

Tension headache responds to a tea made from the fresh leaves of marjoram, in which the volatile oils are released.
