18 EGP

Description

Sativa Seeds from Italy (GMO-FREE DECLARATION)

Marjoram, also known as sweet marjoram, is an aromatic herb in the mint family and is grown as a culinary herb. Native to the Mediterranean region and western Asia, marjoram is also cultivated in northerly climates.

Marjoram is a bushy herbaceous plant that typically reaches 30–60 cm (1–2 feet) in height. The branching stems are densely covered with hairy ovate leaves, arranged oppositely in pairs.

It has long been used as a herbal medicine and contains several compounds that may offer health benefits.

General Info

  • It’s particularly powerful when dried but can also be used fresh. Fresh or dried leaves can be made into a tea or extract. 

  • Marjoram has been shown to have several anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Marjoram’s flowers, leaves, and oil are used as medicine. It is commonly used for runny nose, cough, common cold, other infections, and various digestion problems, but there is no good scientific evidence to support any use.

  • In foods, marjoram herb and oil are used as flavorings. In manufacturing, the oil is used as a fragrance in soaps, cosmetics, lotions, and perfumes.

  • Marjoram is particularly appreciated for the taste it lends to sausages, meats, poultry, stuffings, fish, stews, eggs, vegetables, and salads. 

  • Don’t confuse marjoram with oregano; while similar to oregano, it has a milder flavor and is often used to garnish salads, soups, and meat dishes.
