Origin: Spain. Steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the herb. Middle note.


Thyme is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the herb not once but twice to help remove irritating substances in the plant. Some of its countries of origin are the Mediterranean and Egypt. A few of its active constituents are thymol and carvacrol (makes up over 60% of the oil).

Essential oil of Thyme may help to control the proliferation of bacteria and is a digestive stimulant. It is an intestinal antiseptic, making it helpful when treating gastric infections. Thyme is excellent when used against mouth and throat infections, especially when used as an inhalation.

As a urinary tract antiseptic and diuretic this oil is highly valued for treating infections of the bladder or urinary tract. What may be Thyme’s most valuable gift is its ability to stimulate the body’s production of white corpuscles, thereby strengthening the body’s resistance to invading organisms. Thyme is reported to help revive and strengthen both the body and mind and to stimulate the brain and improve memory in much the same way rosemary does. When mixed in with a hand wash, Thyme is a great disinfectant (actually stronger than many washes used in hospitals!).

This oil blends well with Bergamot essential oil, Lavender essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Marjoram essential oil and Rosemary essential oil.

Thyme can be found in the following blends:
