Origanum marjoram (Marjoram)

Having trouble identifying marjoram with oregano? Here�s a tip, marjoram leaves tend to cluster at the tips of the branches, whereas oregano leaves dot the entire stalk of the plant. Taste wise, oregano plants have a concentration of the aromatic compound carvacrol which gives it its savory flavor while marjoram is sweeter as it isn�t high in that constituent. Sweet marjoram is a good general tonic for both the digestive and respiratory system for example bronchial complaints, headaches due to stress, insomnia, anxiety, painful menstruation or as muscle relaxant.
