Ancient Greeks used it to calm muscle spasms, relieve excess fluid in the tissues, and also as an antidote to poison. Greek women also used an oil made with marjoram on their heads as a relaxant. In 16th century Europe, the herb was scattered on the floors of rooms everywhere to mask unpleasant smells.
