Thyme – Since ancient times, thyme has been considered a symbol of vital energy and strength. It dispels sadness, warms the heart, and gives a positive, even warlike feeling. Particularly recommended for use in winter or when the seasons change.
Thyme oil is one of the hottest and most 'alive' essential oils. The herbalist John Gerard described it in 1597 as 'hot and dry in the third degree (or even in the strongest fourth degree)'. It is an activator of body energy.
Thyme oils are divided into chemotypes based on the predominant compounds – thymol, carvacrol, thujanol, linalool, geraniol. All chemotypes have strong antiseptic properties, with thymol and carvacrol having the strongest antimicrobial activity.
Our thyme oil contains mainly linalool (20%), with a lower and fairly balanced content of other compounds (see chromatogram), with a very pleasant, sweetish, mild odour; the effect is strong but not aggressive, and it is suitable for use by children.
Not all the properties of this product are mentioned here. Unfortunately, due to the EU regulation of health claims, we cannot inform you in detail, even if the benefits of this product are scientifically proven.
As the seasons change, thyme essential oil can be used in winter as follows:
- For children, unless otherwise advised by a specialist: evaporate indoors, add when washing the house, put a couple of drops on the corner of a pillow or on a garment, dilute in vegetable oil at a ratio of 0.5 – 1% (e.g. 1 – 2 drops of essential oil to a teaspoon of almond oil), rub on the chest and soles. If the essential oil is not irritating to the skin, dilute a little and apply to the pannus (not the mucous membrane).
- Essential oils are not necessary for babies without a specialist's recommendation; babies receive their immunity through breast milk and aromatherapy can be used by other family members. If necessary, it is sufficient to just lightly diffuse essential oils in the room, add them when washing surfaces, and apply 1 drop to the floor away from the face. A baby's respiratory tract is very sensitive, so the smell should be barely perceptible in the room, and the rule of 'less is better' should be followed. It is safe for babies to use hydrolats – lavender, myrtle, tea tree, didramonium.
- For adults, these essential oils are also effective. It is great for steaming indoors, for use in massages, balms, breathing in hot vapours with a few drops, etc. When applied to the skin, it can be diluted to a higher concentration, e.g. 2%.
