Skittle, majoram is a mild herb/spice that most often is used in egg dishes. My DH's mom always used it in her stuffed onions and zucchini I love it and always use a lot in dishes I make even my ravioli. It you might say is a cousin to Oregano, just mild,sweet makes your mouth go emmmm

Fresh herb has high levels of vitamin C (ascorbic acid); provide 51.4 g or 86% of RDA per 100 g. Vitamin C is one of the powerful natural anti-oxidant help remove harmful free radicals from the body. Ascorbic acid also has immune booster, wound healing and anti-viral effects.
Marjoram herb contains exceptionally high levels of beta-carotene,vitamin A,cryptoxanthin, lutein and zea-xanthin. Carotenes, xanthins and lutein are powerful flavonoid anti-oxidants. Together, these compounds help act as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease processes.
Vitamin A is known to have antioxidant properties and is essential for healthy eye-sight. It is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural foods rich in vitamin A and carotenes are known to help the body protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.
