Thyme

Thyme

Oil of thyme is derived from thyme, also known as Thymus vulgaris.

Thyme is a perennial herb, a member of the mint family and is used in aromatherapy. The medicinal properties of thyme come from its essential oils which are extracted through steam distillation of fresh flowers and leaves. The chief constituents of its essential oil are Alpha Thujone, Alpha Pinene, Camphene, Beta Pinene, Para Cymene, Alpha Terpinene, Linalool, Borneol, Beta Caryophyllene, Thymol and Carvacrol. Thyme essential oil is a good antiseptic and safeguards wounds and sores against infections. This is mainly due to the presence of components like Caryophyllene and Camphene in the thyme. The same Caryophyllene and Camphene, along with a few other components, give thyme essential oil antibacterial properties. As an Insecticide it can keep away insects and pests. It can be effectively used to keep away parasites that feed on the human body like mosquitoes, fleas, lice, bed-bugs, and flies, as well as insects that attack food grains and clothes like beetles and moths. The fungus Candida albicans is a common cause of mouth, gut and vaginal yeast infections. Researchers at the University of Turin in Italy set out to determine what effect thyme essential oil might have on Candida albicans in the human body. The team reported in the journal Planta Medica that thyme essential oil significantly enhanced intracellular killing of C. albicans. It helps with eczema, dermatitis, insects and other infections.
