CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. Thyme - ‘Thymus vulgaris’ With a specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system when used internally.Thyme is a potent, warm essential oil that holds powerful cleansing and purifying properties. Thought to impart courage to its bearer, Thyme was given to knights and warriors before they went into battle by ladies of the Middle Ages. During this same period, Thyme was often placed beneath pillows to help promote a peaceful sleep and to ward off nightmares. The ancient Greeks used Thyme in their baths and burned it as an incense in their temples while the Egyptians used it in their traditional ceremonies. 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 a carrier oil before application.
