Thyme is a perennial shrub of the Mint family, with more than a hundred species to its name. Two popular species are Garden Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) and Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum). Whereas Garden Thyme has erect stems, Wild Thyme has snake-like stems that crawl close to the ground. Both varieties have thin grayish-green leaves that roll inward from the square, woody stem. Thyme has tubular flowers that grow in clusters and bloom in mid-summer, with various colors depending on the specie. Thyme essential oil is extracted from its flowering tops through water or steam distillation.

Thyme essential oil is believed to have a fortifying effect on both mind and body. Like Rosemary, it is used to improve memory and stimulate the brain. Thyme oil can be used to treat any form of infection and its ability to increase the production of white corpuscles helps strengthen the body's immune system. It also improves circulation, thus raising low blood pressure. Thyme essential oil is also an antiseptic, and it is a valuable treatment for bladder or urinary tract infections.

Including Thyme oil in baths can help combat insomnia. Though it has a stimulating effect, the natural and balanced efficiency of Thyme helps enliven the user when alertness is required and aids relaxation when sleep is necessary. It is best-known as a pulmonary disinfectant and is a traditional cure for colds, coughs and sore throats. Thyme essential oil is excellent in treating all mouth, throat and respiratory infections. Even as little as 0.1% in mouthwash is effective against bacteria which cause mouth and gum infections.

Thyme essential oil has an intense, sweet scent. Its fragrance has green and slightly herbal top notes rounded off by spicy, medicinal undertones.

Those who feel "spaced out" can use the stimulating fragrance of Thyme to energize and revitalize their physical vigor. Thyme essential oil has a gentle and warming scent that fortifies and protects. It is best for people suffering from lethargy and melancholia, and can be used to strengthen both the mind and the spirit.
