Surrender to Sweet Thyme Essential Oil as it extends it timely tendrils of gentle, loving care. Sweet Thyme is the lovely linalool variety and it is steam distilled from tiny glands located in the leaves of this hale and hearty herb. In ancient Rome, soldiers prepared hot, relaxing baths with Sweet Thyme to soothe the body and absorb the oil's essence of bravery and courage. Thyme was used by the ancient Greeks as perfume and deodorant. They used it as a pure plant shield against less than sweet environmental odorants. This sweet, buttery blessing is a cherished essence in our aroma-apothecary.

"The essences produced by different species of thyme have noticeable differences in their chemical composition. Some contain a greater proportion of thymol, others of carcavrol and others again of citral (analogous to the essence of verbena). Nevertheless, their properties are closely related."
~ Jean Valnet, The Practice of Aromatherapy
"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, quite over- canopied with luscious woodbine, with sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine."
~ William Shakespeare
