lemonIf you have already purchased your Essential Oil Kit, you will have lemon and marjoram essential oils on hand. Lemon essential oil is good for nervous conditions and blood pressure, among many other uses. It also has theraputic uses when blended with other essential oils for the treatment of tension headaches. Marjoram has been used for centuries in a variety of ways. Aromatherapists use marjoram as an alternative treatment for anxiety and high blood pressure.

  • Use 2-3 drops in a diffuser or add 8-10 drops to bath water before bed to treat anxiety, grief, hyperactivity, insomnia, nervous tension and stress.
  • Use 2-3 drops in a carrier oil for a full body massage or 8-10 drops in a bath to treat high blood pressure.

If you are pregnant, do not use marjoram for aromatherapy. It is also not suitable for use with children. If there is a diagnosis of depression, avoid using marjoram because it has a strong sedative property and overuse of the oil can cause drowsiness. I don’t know why anyone else would want to, but some religious institutions have used marjoram to suppress sexual desires and impulses because of its anti-aphrodisiac property.
