Thyme, Red Essential Oil 10ml
The Thyme plant is an evergreen perennial shrub that grows up to 45 cm (18 inches) in height. It has a woody root system, a multi-branched stem, small elliptical greenish grey aromatic leaves and pale purple or white flowers. Thyme is derived from the Greek word 'thymos' that means 'perfume'. White Thyme can also be derived from this species if the Red Thyme is further distilled; nonetheless, White Thyme is more commonly derived from the Thymus Zygis species.
Woody, medicinal scent. It has often been described as sharp and warming.
Red Thyme essential oil has been used effectively as a bactericide, antiseptic, antimicrobial, astringent, antispasmodic, antitoxic, diuretic, antifungal, insecticide, tonic, and as an immune stimulant. Thyme Oil can assist with nervous complaints, respiratory problems, poor circulation and problems of the digestive system. It should also be noted that the active ingredient Thymol may crystallise in temperatures below 20 degree Celsius.
Directions for Use
We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state be sure to shake before use.
Thyme was used in ancient herbal medicine Greeks, Egyptians and the Romans. It was used as incense in Greek temples and the Egyptians used it in embalming. During the Middle Ages it was given to jousting Knights for courage, and a sprig of thyme was carried into courtrooms to ward off diseases.
