Battaglia mentions that there are more than 300 different varieties of thyme with Thymus vulgaris being the most common. There are at least six different chemotypes with thymol and linalool being the most common. It should be noted that "White" thyme is mostly a blended oil and will contain synthetics. It is important with this essential oil to know your chemotype.

We will be adding to this information more history and botanical/herbal information.

This essential oil has the potential to be a strong skin irritant, the severity of which depending upon the chemotype. Due to the higher percentage of linalool in this batch, this lessens that possibility, but this oil MUST BE diluted prior to use.  We will also offer the thymol.

This oil has a strong odor profile, so consider that when adding to your blends. It is particularly good used as a chest rub (properly diluted at 1% or less) for respiratory issues and has been shown to be effective for whooping cough and bronchitis and also asthma relief. 

Any ingestion of this oil can cause negative interactions with certain medications. This particular essential oil inhibits platelet aggregation, so should not be used by anyone prior to or following surgery, especially in high or oral doses - or by anyone with a bleeding disorder.
