Pure Thyme (Red) Essential Oil

Thyme essential oil has a warm and powerful herbal aroma.  Thyme has been used in herbal medicines in ancient times and even used during the embalming process by Egyptians.  Red Thyme contains more toxic phenols (carvacrol and thymol) and can irritate mucous membranes and can cause dermal irritation.  Use in low dilution only and in moderation.  Do not use during pregnancy or if under care of a physician.

Thyme has been used for many years for its antimicrobial, antirheumatic, antiseptic, fungicidal, parasiticide, and stimulant properties.  Blends well with bergamot, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, marjoram, pine and rosemary.

Latin Name: Thymus vulgaris

This essential oil may crystallize in temperatures below 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees F).  If this happens, place the bottle in a ziploc bag and into a very hot water bath until it is back to its liquid state.  Best to shake before use.

Essential oil is packaged in an amber glass bottle with dropper cap (orifice reducer cap) for easy application.  Essential oils will be packaged in a box with crinkled kraft paper for safe transportation during shipping.  Please see photo #5 for an example of packaging.
