Marjoram Historical Snippets:

Sweet Marjoram originated from the Mediterranean and North Africa. Its uses can be dated back to 2000 BC in Egypt. There are many legends surrounding the herb due to its representation of happiness by The Greeks and Romans. One being that the plant was given its scent by Venus, the goddess of love so the mortals would smell it and recall her beauty. There was another theory that if Marjoram was seen growing on a grave, then it symbolized the departed spirit had found happiness in the afterlife. In 1527, the herb appeared in the first ever herbal book – Banckes’s Herbal. It is here that it was recognised medically as a digestive, decongestant, antispasmodic and sedater.
