Thyme is an essential oil that I don’t really use by itself. In summer I blend Thyme with other essential oils to keep the bugs away as I showed you last week! As we get closer to the cold and flu season, Thyme is blended with other essential oils to combat congestion so you can breath freely all night and all day. You could also used Thyme essential oil for any recipe that requires Thyme! As always I caution you to use sparingly, one drop too many can ruin an entire dish!
Caution! When using Lemongrass it is advisable to dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, grape seed oil, or flax seed oil. Your skin could be sensitive to direct contact with it. I do use it directly but especially for children you should be careful! Data has also shown that Thyme essential oil should be avoided during pregnancy!
Did you know that Thyme is a member of the Labiatae (mint) botanical family?
Historically, Thyme was used by the Egyptians in their embalming rituals. In ancient Greece, Thyme was used to fight against infectious illnesses. It has also been used for respiratory problems, digestive complaints, preventing and treating infections, and more. doTerra’s Thyme essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves, stems, and flowers of the plant.
