Marjoram Essential Oil Constituents:


Sabinene: No current data available

Linanool: Linalool one of the terpene alcohols is widely distributed in the plant kingdom. Linalool has strong effects on the nervous system and is therefore widely used by aroma therapists and herbologists as a sedative, spasmolytic and local anaesthetic. It is also used against many skin complaints, mostly in the form of tea tree oil.


Carvacrol: A Monoterpene Phenol.

Found mainly in Thyme, Marjoram and Oregano, Carvacrol is a very irritant compound. Great care should be exercised with sensitivity and dosage.


Eugenol: Anaesthetic, antimicrobal, disinfecting, stimulant, aromatic and anticonvulsant.

Eugenol is a Phenylpropanoid in the Phenols group. Eugenol is widely distributed in the plant kingdom.

Potentially irritant. Sensitivity should be tested before using this substance or oil on the skin.


Thymol: A phenolic volatile oil.

Phenolic oils: Found only in a select few aromatic herbs Phenolic volatile oils are very potent and caustic, expectorant, antispasmodic and antimicrobial but very irritant to the mucus membrane. Phenols can be either Monoterpene (thymol, carvacrol found in thyme and oregano) expectorant, antispasmodic and antimicrobial which is very irritant to the mucus membrane or Phenylpropanoid  (Euganol which is widely distributed in plants) that is much more benign while having the same properties.

We at Beneforce are certainly not experts in the use of every herb or oil. In our studies and research we do come across warnings that a herb or oil should not be used in certain circumstances or for certain conditions and ailments. Where possible we will reflect these on our pages but cannot guarantee that our list of contraindications are complete or valid. We urge that you consult an appropriate and knowledgeable practitioner before treatment.
