Thyme Certified Organic Essential Oil
Thyme linalool — also known as Sweet Thyme — is gentler than other well-known Thyme chemotypes such as Thyme Thymol. However, this lesser-known oil is quite versatile and when diluted properly (up to 4.5%), it can be safely used on the skin. Because of its gentle nature, Thyme linalool is an excellent component in facial toners and cleansers. Unlike some other germ-fighting oils, it will help soothe problem skin without causing irritation. Thyme linalool has a woody, herbaceous scent and is often diffused to aid in respiration and digestion or to help ward off seasonal illness. It can also provide a much-needed boost to the immune system after a hospital stay or antibiotic treatment.

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 traditional ceremonies. Today, Thyme is commonly used as a seasoning, but it also produces a potent essential oil that has cleansing and purifying effects for the skin; however, due to its high thymol content, Thyme oil should be diluted with a carrier oil before application. Thyme oil has specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system.*
For topical application, dilute to 1-3%.
