Thyme Thymus vulgaris

With a specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system when used internally, Thyme oil is a potent, warm essential oil that holds powerful cleansing and purifying properties.*

Why Spain and Kenya?

Thyme grows best in a hot, sunny location with well-drained soil. We source our thyme from areas in Spain and Kenya that provide these growing conditions for the plant.

How does it work?

Thyme is a perennial herb in the mint family. It has woody stems covered with tiny hairs. The leaves are small, ovular, and slightly rolled at the edges. Thyme also grows tiny flowers that are bluish purple to pink. It is usually planted in the spring and grows through early fall. It tolerates drought well and is harvested all throughout the summer. The primary source of essential oil is in the leaves, which are steam distilled.
