Thyme oil is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties, as well as its ability to support immune and respiratory system health. It is extracted through steam distillation of the leaves and flowers of the thyme plant.
Thyme oil has traditionally been used to treat respiratory infections, such as bronchitis and coughs, as well as to relieve muscle and joint pain. It is also believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
It can be used aromatically, topically and internally, always diluting it adequately. By inhaling its aroma, it can help cleanse and purify the air, and can also improve concentration and mental clarity. When applied topically, it can help relieve muscle and joint pain, as well as insect bites and skin infections. Internally, it can help support immune and respiratory system health when used properly and under the supervision of a trained health professional.
