Thyme essential oil | Thymus vulgaris

Traditional use: Common thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is an herb with a wide range of applications, particularly in medicine and culinary art. For ages it has been used as a spice in soups, salads and meat dishes. Thyme also has a rich history as an addition to alcohol of different kinds. This herb is quite interesting for many other reasons, though. In natural medicine thyme essential oil is frequently used in order to strengthen the immunity of the whole organism. Thanks to its antimicrobial properties essential oil helps to fight infections. It also acts as an expectorant which is helpful when the upper respiratory tract is blocked because of the excess of mucus. All those effects make thyme an effective aid during seasonal colds with no particular side effects. It might be used in massage when applied with a carrier oil since it soothes pain in muscles and joints while moisturizing the skin and reducing soreness. The aroma of thyme oil is really complex, so it is hard to describe it with words. There are certainly some notes of pepper and camphora in the background, but it is mainly a warm, sweet and herbal fragrance. 

Occurrence: Common thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is a dwarf shrub that belongs to the huge family of Lamiaceae plants. It usually reaches a small size, growing up to 30 cm in height and about 40 cm in width. The whole shrub has a dark green, a little greyish color and widely spread stems. Small leaves are placed on two opposing sides and have a lanceous shape. The flowers are gathered in head-shaped inflorescences of violet, pink or white color. The ripe dark brown fruits are usually placed in splits 

Thyme comes from Southern Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. Originally, it occurred mainly in France, Italy and Spain. Essential oil available in our shop is produced from Spanish crops. Currently, thyme grows wildly in other areas, e.g. Middle East but generally it is cultivated all over the world. In Europe the flowering period occurs in June and July but on rare occasions thyme also grows in September.

Biochemistry: Thyme essential oil contains a lot of active substances that are responsible for its properties. They include thymol, gamma-terpinene and p-cimen. There are also: caryophyllene, d-limonene and beta-myrcene. 

The oil available in our shop is produced with a method of steam distillation from the flowers and leaves of common thyme. Thanks to that every drop is optimally condensed and has an aroma bouquet unique for this plant.

Aroma: Middle note of high intensity and low durability.

Fun fact: In the 16th century French monks from the Benedictine monastery Fecamp came up with a recipe for a high percent herbal liqueur with many aromas, including thyme. It is known all over the world as Bénédictine and belongs to the group of the most exclusive alcohols.

How does Thyme essential oil | Thymus vulgaris work?

Enhances intellectual performance: Scientific studies show that thyme essential oil is a valuable support for the proper work of the nervous system. The biologically active compounds found in this oil increase the activity of norepinephrine and dopamine – the neurotransmitters responsible for energy and motivation. Besides that, they help to maintain high levels of acetylcholine, which is essential for efficient concentration and memory. They also regulate the activity of GABA and serotonin. The first one stabilizes attention and mood, while both of them support stress resilience and mental comfort. Moreover, these compounds stimulate blood flow, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach the brain. In this way, thyme oil can help the mind to work effectively.

Supports the immune system: For centuries, thyme has been known as a plant that helps to deal with various infections. Thanks to modern scientific studies, it has been established that biologically active compounds found in its essential oil inhibit the growth of certain pathogenic bacteria. They also strengthen the body’s natural abilities to defend against uninvited guests. This is because they stimulate the production of lymphocytes – white blood cells that search for and destroy germs. At the same time, they show anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to reduce the spread of inflammation, but also alleviate muscle or joint pains.

Supports the digestive system: Masters of traditional herbalism use thyme not only as a support for immunity, but also to support digestion. Scientific results confirm that the active compounds present in the essential oil of this plant increase the activity of digestive enzymes. Therefore, they facilitate the absorption of valuable nutrients contained in food. They also normalize intestinal movements, counteract constipation and relieve bloating. Interestingly, these substances can regulate appetite when it is either too strong or too weak. In addition, they support liver function in producing bile and in cleansing the body.

Improves overall health: Thyme essential oil benefits the entire body. It supports the circulatory system, as it improves blood flow and helps to regulate blood pressure. In effect, all organs and tissues of the body can be properly nourished and oxygenated. Besides that, the biologically active compounds found in this oil facilitate breathing and relieve coughing, which might be particularly helpful during infections or allergic reactions. They also act as powerful antioxidants – removing free radicals and thus preventing damage to fragile cellular structures and premature aging of the body. Additionally, they benefit the skin, moisturizing it and soothing acne lesions. There are reports claiming that thyme oil can stimulate libido.
