Dealing with respiratory infections and a variety of skin conditions? Maybe it's time for some thyme! Go ahead and raid the kitchen or simply add this organic essential oil to your EO emergency kit.
Derived from the leaves and flowers of Thymus vulgaris, a flowering plant of the family Lamiaceae, this oil has a fresh and medicinal scent reminiscent of your garden herbs. Traditionally, the ancient Greeks used it as a purifying sacrifice to the Gods and to combat infectious diseases.
In modern times, Thyme has a wide range of therapeutic benefits owing to its antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, antiviral, and antiseptic properties. It's been known to help boost the immune system especially when you suffer repeated bouts of flu, colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, and other respiratory illnesses. Because of its expectorant properties, it's definitely one of the best oil to have on hand during the flu season!
Thyme also promotes healthy skin, improves circulation, and is great for hormonal imbalance. Dilute with your favourite carrier oil for an effective spot treatment for blemishes, acne, cuts and scars, rashes, sores, and other bacterial and fungal infections. Bracing yourself for the monthly period pain? Ditch the painkillers and apply Thyme oil on the bottoms of your feet and the lower abdomen to ease menstrual cramps!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
