Thyme Essential Oil was one of the earliest medicinal plants to be used in Western Medicine. You may like to blend a few drops of thyme essential oil with one of our wide range of carrier oils or base lotions to create your own muscle rub or a chest rub if you're suffering from a cough or cold. 

Up until the first world war, hospitals would have used Thyme as a natural disinfectant and it is thought the ancient Egyptians used Thyme when embalming their departed loved ones.

It's purifying effects make it a great choice to burn if there are viral infections going around and its naturally stimulating aroma may be useful in offering a little energy boost throughout the day.

Thymus vulgaris Oil


Dilute to a maximum of 1% in a carrier oil and use as a muscle rub (you can also blend it with other warming oils such as Black Pepper or Rosemary for more effect). Add a few drops to a burner if suffering from a cold or cough. Add 2-3 drops to a warm bath to help ease the joints.

To diffuse in a traditional burner, simply fill dish with water and add a few drops of oil on top before lighting the candle. For electrical fragrancers, follow instructions given by the manual. For massage: dilute in a carrier oil and gently massage over the skin. Add a few drops to a handkerchief or inhale directly from the bottle if you are on the go. Dilute in distilled water and pour into spray bottle for an all-natural room fragrancer.
