Is your concept of thyme limited to the kitchen? Now’s the thyme to expand your usage to every room in the house. Including the naturally occurring constituents thymol, para-cymene, and gamma-terpinene, Thyme essential oil should earn a top spot in your EO rotation.
What is Thyme essential oil used for?
So many benefits, so much Thyme! Here are eight ways to take advantage of every bit of this herby, extremely useful essential oil.
It’s Thyme for:
A cute complexion: Get red-carpet ready every day with a mix of honey and Thyme. Mix a quarter-size amount of raw honey with a drop of this skin cleansing oil and spread it over your face. Let sit for 5−10 minutes while the Thyme helps purify the skin, then rinse off.
A scalp scrub: Pamper yourself to the max with a little luxurious treatment. Add 1 drop of Thyme and Tea Tree to a small amount of hair oil and massage it into your scalp using your fingertips for a rejuvenating, feel-your-shoulders-drop-you’re-so-relaxed head massage.
A sumptuous soap: Just because showering is a daily necessity doesn’t mean it should be boring! Create a sudsy oasis by making your own DIY loofah soap scented with a sweet and springy Thyme, Bergamot, and Spearmint combo.
Lustrous locks: Give yourself shampoo commercial-worthy hair! Add 3 drops of Thyme to this recipe for an herbalicious addition to your hair care routine. Spray it on daily or when your mane needs a little extra maintenance.
A sparkly space: Want to add a little something extra to your cleaning routine? Dash a bit of Thyme into your Thieves® Household Cleaner while you’re scrubbing every surface. We especially adore this aroma in kitchens for a little homegrown nostalgia.
Pest-free play: Don’t let the great outdoors bug you! Whenever you head outside—whether it’s the backyard or a mountain trail—use Thyme-infused Insect Repellent. You’ll have nothing but fun since this adventure-must helps deter outdoor annoyances.
A meditative massage: Kick up your feet after physical activity with our Ortho Ease® massage oil. After your sweat session, use this massage oil, which features Thyme, to make sure you’re ready to conquer whatever else the day brings.
A fresh fragrance: Say see ya to stale odors! Add the homey scents of Thyme and Rosemary to crisp Eucalyptus Radiata and sweet-as-can-be Grapefruit in your diffuser. This aroma is familiar enough for repeated use but unique enough to make every guest jealous.
