Marjoram is a very good remedy for insomnia, especially when used, together with lavender, in a warm bath before bedtime… The sedative properties of Marjoram must not be abused, for it can dull the senses and cause drowsiness, and in large amounts is stupefying (Davis, 192).
It is used in treating high blood pressure and heart conditions, as it dilates the arteries, thereby reducing strain on the heart (Davis, 192).
A hot compress of Marjoram over the abdomen will ease menstrual cramps more effectively than anything else I know (Davis, 192).
By its action in lessening both emotional response and physical sensation, Marjoram has the effect of being an anti-aphrodisiac (Davis, 192).

Internal: Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.
However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (Schnaubelt 96).
All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
