Thyme Essential Oil Uses – Product Description
For centuries, thyme has been used across nations and cultures for incense in holy temples, ancient embalming practices, and warding off nightmares. Just as its history is rich with a variety of uses, thyme’s diverse benefits and uses continue today. Thyme is extracted from the leaf of the thyme plant and is high in thymol. The powerful combination of organic chemicals in Thyme provide a cleansing and purifying effect on the skin; however, because of the prominent presence of thymol, Thyme oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut oil before application. Thyme is commonly used to add spice and flavor to a variety of meals and can also be taken internally to support a healthy immune system.* Thyme also has the ability to naturally repel insects.
