Thyme Essential Oil
Thought to impart courage to its bearer, Thyme was given to knights and warriors before they went into battle by ladies of the Middle Ages. During this same period, Thyme was often placed beneath pillows to help promote a peaceful sleep and to ward off nightmares. The ancient Greeks used Thyme in their baths and burned it as an incense in their temples while the Egyptians used it in their embalming rites. Today, Thyme is commonly used as a seasoning, but it also produces a potent essential oil that has cleansing and clarifying effects for the skin; however, due to its high phenol content, Thyme should be diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil before application. Thyme has specific chemotypes that produce a broad-spectrum activity in promoting winter-time health. Including Thyme essential oil in food dishes or consuming one to two drops a day will promote a healthy immune system when seasonal threats are high.
