Since it was believed to give courage to its wearer, in the Middle Ages ladies gave thyme to knights and warriors before they left for battle. During that same period, thyme was often put under pillows to help promote restful sleep and prevent nightmares. The ancient Greeks used thyme in their baths and burned it as 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 powerful essential oil that has cleansing and purifying effects on the skin; however, due to its high thymol content, thyme must be diluted with a carrier oil before applying.


    • Add two drops to vegetable capsules and take them during the winter to maintain a healthy immune system.
    • Use it when gardening to repel insects naturally.
    • Use a drop or two in meat dishes and main dishes to add a fresh herbal flavor.
    • Dilute with a carrier oil and then apply to specific areas of the skin to purify and promote healthy-looking skin.
