his essential oil is often overlooked in specialist literature despite its richness. It has a long tradition of harvesting in Spain and there seems to be no shortage of it. It contains a significant amount of 1,8 cineole, but also various terpenes, monoterpenols and esters as well as traces of phenols. Do not confuse it with the sweet marjoram, in Latin: Origanum majorana!

The molecular architecture of this essential oil is quite symmetrical to that of ravintsara. It is anticatarrhal, expectorant, bronchopulmonary decongestant, anti-infectious and disinfectant. It is especially recommended for catarrhal bronchitis, viral bronchitis and sinusitis. It stimulates immunity. Esters and sesquiterpenes add their antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects.

A pure product of the earth and sky of Spain. This EO is an antidepressant that should be reserved for those whose essential vital resources - emotional, instinctive and mental - are in lethargy and are just waiting to spring up.
