Sweet Thyme has a clean, herbaceous, green aroma and is very useful during bouts of illness. It is a great oil for lethargy, digestive problems and respiratory conditions.
Try adding 1 drop each of Thyme, Lemon and Rosemary to the water in an oil burner to help create a 'germ-free zone' during times of family ills.
Blend 2 drops of Thyme, 3 drops of Geranium and 1 drop of Palmarosa in a teaspoon of Peach Kernel oil. Use as a body massage oil to help you get back on your feet after illness or if you are feeling run-down.
Did you know?
The distillation of the oil is mainly undertaken in Spain, but also occurs elsewhere in the Mediterranean region. There are many different species of Thyme and within Thymus Vulgaris there are a variety of chemotypes that change the constituent make-up of the oil significantly. The most common chemotypes are Thymol and Carvacrol, which contain high levels of toxic Phenols (up to 60% Thymol and Carvacrol). Absolute Aromas offers Sweet Thyme, which is sweeter, less toxic and less irritant than the Thymol and Carvacrol types, with a maximum 3% concentration of these components.
Method of Extraction:
Water and steam-distilled from the partially dried wild herb.
Do not use Sweet Thyme during pregnancy. Using Thyme in the bath may irritate those with sensitive skin.
