Called also origane, origanum, eastward marjoram, wild marjoram, and grove marjoram.
Wild or field marjoram hath a Wurzel which kriechens much under ground, which continues a long time, sending up sundry-brownish, hard, square Stengel, with small dark grün Blätter, very like those of Süß Marjoram, but harder, and somewhat broader, an der Spitze of the Stengel stand tufts of Blüten, of a deep purplish red colour. The Samen is small and something blacker than that of süßem Majoran.
It wächst plentifully in the borders of corn fields, and in some copses.
It Blüten towards the latter end of the Summer.
This is also unter der Herrschaft von Merkur. It strengthens the Magen and head much, there being scarce a better Heilmittel growing for such as are troubled with a sour humour in the Magen, it restores the appetite being lost, helps the cough, and consumption of the Lungen, it reinigt the body of choler, vertreibt poison, and remedies the infirmities of the Milz, helps the bitings of giftiges Tiere, and helps such as have poisoned themselves by eating Hemlock, Henbane, or Opium. It fördert Harn and die Monatsregel in women, helps the Wassersucht, and the scurvy, Wundschorf, Juckreiz, and Gelbsucht. The Saft being dropped into the ears, helps deafness, pain and noise in the ears. And thus much for this herb, between which and adders, there is a deadly Antipathie.
