Thyme Essential Oil (Red) - Botanical Name: Thymus vulgaris
Cautions: Red Thyme Essential Oil should be avoided during pregnancy, or if a history of high blood pressure exists. Red Thyme contains a high amount of toxic phenols (carvacrol and thymol) that can irritate mucus membranes, cause skin irritation and skin sensitization.
Red Thyme Essential Oil has been used effectively as a bactericide, antiseptic, antimicrobial, astringent, antispasmodic, antitoxic, diuretic, antifungal, insecticide, tonic, and as an immune stimulant. Thyme Oil can assist with nervous complaints, respiratory problems, poor circulation and problems of the digestive system. It should also be noted that the active ingredient Thymol may crystallize in temperatures below 20 degree Celsius. The more thymol present, the greater it's propensity for altering states. We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state be sure to shake before use.
Blends well with: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary and Pine.
