Observations & Anectodal Information
This special chemotype of Thymus vulgaris contains linalol, the sweet floral note contained in lavender. Because of the high linalol content, this thyme is softer and gentler on the skin without losing its powerful antibacterial and anti-infectious properties. It is a bronchodilator, opening the breathing passages and clearing congestion and respiratory inflammation. It is one of the most powerful antibacterial oils, and has been listed as a potential remedy for everything from strep and staph infections to anthrax and bird flu.
This oil can be taken internally (at proper dilution rates) to support recovery from all types of infectious dis-eases and conditions.
- Generally recognized as safe at normal dosage.
- Avoid essential oil contact with eyes. Some people find it to be irritating when diffused. If this happens, try diluting it with other, softer oils such as combava, petitgrain, rosemary, or lavender.
