Thyme's high thymol content encourages expectoration and its warming effect reduces excesses of mucous and phlegm. When diluted in massage oil, thyme oil can help to enhance circulation and to aid healthy muscle and joint function. Thyme can also be used to uplift mood and to enhance mental stamina. Used in the diffuser with other oils such as conifers, thyme oil strengthens the nerves and enhances brain function, improving memory and concentration.
Caution: thyme oil is extremely dermo-caustic: do not apply directly to the skin. Do not use during pregnancy or if you have high blood pressure. May cause irritation to sensitive skin, so please dilute at 1% or less. Do not take thyme essential oil internally.
