Thyme essential oil, steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops, with stimulating, antibacterial and expectorant qualities.


Its astringent virtues help rebalance the pH of oily skin and for this reason it can also be used for the treatment of acne, pimples and blackheads. But the essential oil is also effective in relieving skin affected by eczema, dermatitis, herpes and fungal infections, being a powerful antiseptic. While as a diuretic, it is capable of draining excess liquids that cause water retention, abdominal swelling and cellulite blemishes. It is also an organic healer, therefore it can be used to naturally heal wounds, sores, burns and to calm the irritation caused by insect bites in general. Thymol , one of the compounds of the essential oil, is used in most mouthwashes, for this reason, a few drops can help reduce inflammation, gingivitis and stomatitis.

Thanks to its antibacterial properties, the essential oil obtained from thyme can be added to shampoos for oily or dry hair, as it is not only able to deeply cleanse the scalp, limiting sebum secretions.

Thymol and carvacrol are two phenols with an irritating effect on the mucous membranes, which is why thyme essential oil must always be used in moderation, preferably diluted.

To calm the cough and improve digestion, 2-3 drops of thyme essential oil are needed to add to a teaspoon of honey, while in case of airway obstruction, it is sufficient to add a drop of essence to the aerosol device.

If poured into water, this oil can be used for regenerating foot baths, while topically, prefer sweet almond oil or argan oil as vectors, in which to pour only a few drops of thyme essential oil. Furthermore, it is particularly indicated in the treatment of urinary affections and as an oil for massages: just dilute 10 drops of thyme essential oil in 100 ml of sweet almond oil for pain-relieving friction.
