Nothing much better than a big stockpot of chicken and thyme simmering away to help chase away the winter sniffles, and there is more to Grandma’s favorite remedy than just a delicious soup. From research published by Dr. Jean Valnet, it is documented that the herb, Thyme, is one of the most potent antiseptics in the herb world. His research has shown that Thyme can help to neutralize a broad range of different bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Thyme has been used throughout history for a variety of purposes. Seen as a symbol of courage, bunches of thyme were often given to young men going off to war. It was used to help cleanse houses and freshen sick rooms. Tonics were made for the ailing to sip. And especially during cooler weather, it was added to flavor stews and broths. They say an apple a day will keep the doctor away, but maybe it should be a bowl of thyme stew!
Due to the antiseptic nature, Beeyoutiful®’s Thyme Oil is a tremendous asset in your quest for optimal health. It can be used to cleanse the house, massage the back or freshen up your space!
Diffusing: Thyme Oil can be added straight to your diffuser or you can blend with your favorite essential oils. Beeyoutiful® suggests blending with Eucalyptus, Lemon, Rosemary, Orange, and Oregano.
Cleaning: Thyme Oil can be added to your favorite essential oil blend to help boost your cleaning power. Add a few drops to your laundry load to disinfect linens from a sick room, or when you have been out and about in cold season! For more recipes, see Thyme Oil Recipes.
Topical: Thyme Oil is a great addition to Sweet Almond Oil for a wonderful massage. It can be used on sore feet, tired backs and when you are run down. Great way to ward off germs, by helping to stimulate the lymphatic systems and increase blood flow coupled with the antiseptic properties of Thyme!
For aromatherapy use. For all other uses, carefully dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba, grapeseed, olive, or almond oil prior to use. Please consult an essential oil book or other professional reference source for suggested dilution ratios
Natural Essential Oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
Always dilute before any use, other than aromatherapy. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or lactating, consult a practitioner before use. Not for internal use.
I bought my first bottle of Thyme from Beeyouiful a couple years ago. First discovery: it is HOT! I use it as disinfectant, that sort of thing.. but it became pure gold this week! We have developed a terrible problem with tiny grease ants. I've tried ant treatments and other essential oils and nothing touched it. Only March and already I've had swarms of ants in the bathroom, kitchen and even the living room (where I am feeding a very young kitten in a pet taxi). I got out a tsp of coarse salt and added a generous amount of Thyme to it Let sit 5 minutes then add that to a squirt bottle of water and shake. I started misting the areas I was seeing ants. Every time I saw ants, I misted it again. This morning to my shock and delight, NO ANTS! NONE! Over the top success! I am low on Thyme and can't do without it now! (btw) I recently learned how to use essential oils better. Oil and water don't mix, so the oils want to float (in your bath, in a spray bottle, whatever) I like essential oil in witch hazel, peroxide, sometimes just water as a base. But I learned if you add it to salt first, it will bind to the salt and when it dissolves in the liquid will continue to bind to the salt (even when completely dissolved) and is now blended into all the liquid instead of floating on top. Wonderful to know!!
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.

An aromatherapy recipe I would like to use lists as one of the ingredients thyme with the Latin name "Thymus vulgaris ct linalol." Is this the same thyme that you sell? Thank you!
Question by: Tanya Mills on Feb 14, 2017 10:12:00 AM
The botanical name of the variety of Thyme essential oil we carry is Thymus vulgaris zygis. The gs/ms batch test results for what we currently have in stock has a linalool content of 50.85%. You can view the rest of the active compounds per batch test result by clicking on the "gs/ms" tab at the top of the product description.
