Marjoram, a medicinal plant to combat heartburn, bad breath, gingivitis, mucus, headaches or insomnia

The marjoram ( Origanum majorana L .) Is a woody herb, which can measure up to 70 cm with small flowers that can be white or pinkish and has a very pleasant and particular aroma, which makes it very attractive to have at home as in the orchard-garden.

It grows very well in sunny areas and is sensitive to cold and very humid soils.

In this article we talk about the wonderful medicinal properties of Marjoram and I also invite you to watch a video that I have left you below on natural remedies for heartburn or heartburn.

For its medicinal use the flowers are used when they are about to bloom or have already flowered, and also the leaves. They can be used both fresh and dried. In the kitchen, both the leaves and the flowers can be used to flavor your favorite recipes .
