Blends with Thyme Oil

Download PDF

Thyme oil has been referred to as one of the most important essential oils in aromatherapy. It is always important to be aware of the chemotype being used. I have been meticulous in sourcing the world’s finest thyme oils from Spain and Morocco. I am very proud to present the following three thyme oils:

Thymus zygis c.t linalool from Spain
Thymus saturejoides c.t borneol From Morocco
Thymus vulgaris c.t thymol from Spain

Very often the chemotype is not specified and a commercial grade of thyme oil with a high thymol content is used. This increases the risk of irritation and sensitisation to the skin and mucous membranes.
