Historically, dried Thyme has been burned as an aerial disinfectant in hospitals, applied in poultices, as an ingredient in teas and to flavour cooking.
Red Thyme/Thyme thymol has a very warming (read: spicy), herbaceous and stimulating scent profile. Sensitive individuals might experience intense reactions smelling Red Thyme directly from the bottle, so exercise caution when first interacting with this oil. We consider Red Thyme a precious oil as it is more expensive (lower yield) to produce. This complements the light hand we would utilize this oil with.
The active agents in Red Thyme are Thymol and Carvacrol (found in Oregano). These are the constituents responsible for its incredible fungicidal/bactericidal powers. Using this oil safely can seem tricky, but do not fear! Correct dilution (no more than 1.5%)/dosage of Red Thyme will ensure its efficacy. Use to ease flu chills, encourage blood flow, stimulate most of the body’s systems (digestive, nervous, immune, detox) and kickstart your immune system.
Our chilly dispositions (and faces) are warmed by Thyme Thymol, stirring up creative flow, getting us moving and melting the snow off our minds. It can ease feelings of frigidity and push us forward to Spring!
