Thyme was often used in the Middle Ages for many purposes, such as, given to soldiers going to war, to ward off nightmares, and for embalming.
"Today, Thyme is commonly used as a seasoning, but it also produces a potent essential oil that has cleansing and purifying effects for the skin; however, due to its high thymol content, Thyme should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil before application. Thyme has specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system.*"
