This plant is actually wild growing thyme, but is known as Spanish Wild Marjoram. It belongs to the lamiaceae family of Spain and is not the same as sweet or French Marjoram; neither is it oregano, which is also called wild marjoram.

This oil is said to be more effective than that of
sweet marjoram when used as an expectorant for
respiratory tract infections and spasms, as it has antiseptic properties for the upper respiratory tract, but is not a muscle relaxant or a sedative, as sweet marjoram is. Spanish marjoram oil is commonly used in aromatherapy and blends well with lavender and bergamot oils for creating a relaxing environment. When used in an oil burner or in a massage oil, this herb is said to calm the nerves, and fight loneliness and rejection. It also aids digestion.

Spanish wild marjoram is known to have been used by herbalists since ancient Greece. Ancient Greeks and Romans crowned bridal couples with wreaths of marjoram to symbolize love, honour and happiness. Marjoram tea with honey was used by singers to preserve their voices.

An entire group of citrus fruits come under the umbrella of Mandarin oranges, including Satsuma, Clementine, Dancy, Honey, Pixie, and tangerines.

This oil is very gentle and is hence said to be used for treating even children and pregnant women, one of the few oils to be used this way. With its tonic and stimulating effect on both the stomach and the liver it is helpful for digestive problems. Mandarin oil is also useful for treating acne, oily skin, and spots. It is supposed to help ease problems such as fluid retention and obesity as well. The oil, diluted around 1-2% in a carrier oil, is massaged gently on a child's tummy to relieve a tummy ache. A few drops in the bath calms hyperactive children. Used in an oil burner, it dispels depression and relieves anxiety.

The Mandarin oranges are so called because they were traditionally offered as gifts to the mandarins of China. In France, the Mandarin is considered a safe remedy to treat indigestion in children, and for the elderly as it helps strengthen the digestive system and the liver. Native to Southern China and the Far East, the Mandarin orange was brought to Europe in 1805 and to America in 1845.

Lime oil has a sharp, citrus smell that immediately perks up one's mood on smelling it, and is pale yellow to light olive in colour.

Lime oil, when used in an oil burner, stimulates a tired mind and helps ease anxiety, apathy, and depression. It is useful to reduce fevers associated with colds, sore throats, and flu. It increases immunity while easing coughs, bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma. It is said to be helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and poor circulation, as well as for obesity and cellulite. This oil is good for the skin; it reduces oiliness and acne, helps with herpes, insect bites and cuts. However, the oil that is obtained by cold expression (as opposed to steam distillation) can cause photosensitivity and irritate the skin.

Limes are originally from Asia, but they are now grown in most warm countries like Italy, the West Indies, and the Americas. The lime is green when raw and ripens to yellow, and usually measures about two inches in diameter. It was introduced into Europe by the Moors and from there it migrated to the Americas. The lime is said to have a lower Vitamin C content than lemons do. People often carried limes on long ship journeys to prevent sailors getting scurvy from Vitamin C deficiency.

Essential oils are all sourced from plants. Different oils come from separate parts of the plant such as roots, stems, leaves, flowers, seeds and fruit. They are usually obtained by cold pressing or distillation of the appropriate part of the plant. Some plants like Lavender can give a high yield of oil whilst Rose needs an incredible amount of rose petals to achieve the same amount hence the high costs of some oils. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and should never be taken internally and when used on the skin should be diluted with a base oil.
