“…thyme has the effect of closing down the psychic mind in favor of the conscious intellectual mind. This may be particularly beneficial for people who tend to be dreamy, detached or immersed in their spiritual life to the detriment Of their physical wellbeing.” (Cunningham S. Magical aromatherapy. Llewellyn Publications Inc., USA, 1989)
Thymus serpyllum is native to Northern Europe and the Western Himalayan mountain area. It is a low growing small shrub, suitable as a ground cover in gardens. It has small tightly packed aromatic leaves, which stem from a woody evergreen bush that flowers in purple or purple/pink. Thyme Wild Essential Oil is steam or water distilled from the dried leaves and flowering tops of the plant. The color of the oil is pale yellow. It has a fresh, somewhat sharp-terpene, woody, herb-like aroma. Wild Thyme is also known as creeping thyme or mother thyme.
FACT: The word thyme is from the Greek word thumus, meaning courage – as the plant historically was associate with bravery. Roman soldiers bathed in bath infused with the herb before entering battle, and in the Middle Ages sprigs of thyme were woven int scarves of knights, departing for war.
