Some think the name Thyme is derived from the Greek word thyo meaning perfume.
Others believe thymos (also Greek) is the correct origin, which signifies courage and strength. In ancient Greece the phrase to smell of Thyme
was used to praise those with admirable style. In medieval times it was believed to instill bravery. Ladies would adorn their knights with a scarf sporting an embroidered bee hovering over a twig of Thyme. The ancient Romans were some of the first to use Thyme in cooking, using it to give flavor to cheeses and liqueurs. The fresh or dried leaves of Thyme are utilized for their flavoring properties, but distillation of the leaves and flowering tops produces the oil that is employed for its therapeutic properties. The two main ingredients in Thyme oil are thymol and carvacrol, but thymol is believed to be responsible for most of the therapeutic aspects3,5 Internally Thyme oil is used for cough, bronchitis, and indigestion. Traditionally, it has also been used to stimulate menstrual flow and aid in resolving occasional childhood diarrhea and bedwetting. Externally, it has been used to treat fungal infections, help treat minor arthritis, gum disease and tonsillitis. Thyme is found in creams, lotions, perfumes, soaps and detergents because of its sweet-smelling aroma. Thymol is also found in toothpastes, mouthwashes and external analgesics for pain relief. Young Living Thyme has been studied for its antimicrobial properties. Recent studies show that Thyme may be effective against a variety of bacteria. Thymol is one of many constituents in Listerine but it has not been adequately studied as a single active ingredient in mouthwashes. Of interesting note, Thyme oil was recently studied in combination with Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood as rubbing oils for stimulating hair growth.How to Use (suggested usage instructions) for Young Living Essential Oil Single Thyme - 15 ml - 3650:
