Thyme Sweet Essential Oil
Sweet Thyme Essential Oil (Thymus officinalis linalool) – This is a rare variety of the thyme species and it is steam distilled from tiny glands located in the leaves of this beautiful powerful herb. In ancient Rome, soldiers prepared hot, relaxing baths with Sweet Thyme to soothe the body and absorb the oil's essence of bravery and courage. Thyme was used by the ancient Greeks as perfume and deodorant. They used it as a pure plant shield against less than sweet environmental odorants.
Strong as it is soft, Sweet Thyme Essential Oil is known to revitalize body and mind while being mild enough to be used on sensitive skin, young children, and the elderly. This special variety of Thyme is a treasured ingredient in our gentle skincare serums. It is an effective agent of oral care to freshen the mouth and breath and Sweet Thyme also fosters focus for creative endeavours.
