Does your immune system barely put up a fight? Are you always the first one with a sniffling nose and the last one barely breathing from stuffiness? Thyme will put your defensive line at attention.
Regularly used by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, thyme oil offers a number of health benefits. Thyme oil possesses natural purifying and cleansing properties that, when applied in small amounts, help promote healthy and clear skin.
The oil utilizes similar properties when it comes to bodily health by combatting harmful environmental elements and seasonal threats. The oil’s strong purifying and cleansing properties, along with its natural ability to fortify the immune system, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when your body’s in need of a pick-me-up.
To support the immune system, add 1-2 drops thyme to a veggie capsule and take internally.
For recipes, put 1 drop in meat or entrees if the herb is called for. Lastly, you can apply thyme topically to support skin health. Simply dilute 1-2 drops and apply gently over the affected area.
General Methods of Application
Apply diluted. Aromatically. Topically. Internally.
Those with sensitive skin should dilute the oil with a carrier oil. Avoid touching the eyes, ears, and other sensitive areas with the oil. People who are nursing, pregnant, or are receiving medical attention should consult their physician before use. Additionally, make sure to store the oil away from children.
