I use this with my patients and they report an instant release of tension. The sweet herbal smell is divine, it is one of my favorite oils aromatically and therapeutically. Patients request it!
This is my favorite Marjoram EO. It's scent is pleasant, and its energetic effects of consolidating and grounding are very helpful. Great for stabilizing a wobbly energy field.
