Thyme, White Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Thymus Zygis
Plant Part: Leaves
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Origin: North America
Description: Influenced greatly by its surroundings, Thymus Zygis will produce very different oils depending on climate, soil condition and altitude. Most White Thyme Essential Oil being harvested comes from the zygis species of Thyme because of it’s more attractive cost and higher percentage of the active Thymol (45% or greater in superior grades).
Color: Pale yellow to orange-yellow clear liquid.
Common Uses: White Thyme Essential Oil is believed to have antiseptic qualities, as well as the ability to cultivate courage. Many aromatherapists credit White Thyme Oil with having stimulating, uplifting, and reviving properties. 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.

Aromatic Scent: White Thyme Essential Oil has a spicy, warm, herbaceous scent. It is very powerful and penetrating, with medicinal and green tones.
Directions to Use: 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.
History: Thyme was used in ancient herbal medicine Greeks, Egyptians and the Romans. It was used as an incense in Greek temples and the Egyptians used it in embalming. During the Middle Ages it was given to jousting Knights for courage, and a sprig of thyme was carried into courtrooms to ward off diseases.
