This herb is a green delight in many gardens. Its latin name is Origanum maiorana. Its pharmachological name is Herba Maioranae. Its common name is sweet marjoram or knotted marjoram. Its Egyptian name is Mardaqoush, Mardaqush. This plant could be much confused with oregano, but still it is a well known herb used in many countries for many delightful dishes. The Ancient Greeks were the most known civilizations for using marjoram. The Greeks made wreaths and garlands of sweet marjoram for marriage and funeral ceremonies. It was believed that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, created sweet marjoram as a gentle symbol of happiness. Both the ancient Greeks and Romans would crown bridal couples with wreaths of marjoram to symbolize love, honor and happiness.


Marjoram has a very ancient medical reputation. The Greeks used it extensively, both internally and externally for fomentations. It was a remedy for narcotic poisons, convulsions and dropsy.
