REMEMBER TO ALWAYS DILUTE THYME THYMOL IN A CARRIER OIL. NEVER USE NEAT!
Essential oil of Thyme is one of the most potently antiseptic essential oils. Thymol has been extensively documented for its antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal action.
Known as a powerhouse for its ability to fight bacterial and viral infections, Thyme Thymol is the oil to have on hand when cold and flu season arrives. Even when diffused in the air, Thyme Thymol is a healing agent unlike any other.
Thyme can also be called upon when headaches get the best of you and your stomach says to go back to bed. And for those with dry, itchy scalps? Thyme Oil may be just the addition to your hair care routine that will get your scalp and locks shiny and dandruff free.
When combined with Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Cypress, Pine or Tea Tree this is an essential oil that is capable of clearing the blues of depression and the room of germs.
