Thyme – doTERRA Essential Oil

Tuesday Tip-off!

Thyme essential oil is cleansing and clarifying for the skin; however, due to its high phenol content, Thyme should be diluted with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil.


Thyme is naturally antifungal and antibacterial. Other antiseptic qualities make Thyme very useful as a disinfectant, especially useful as a suppressive for mold and fungus.  It has also been historically used as a remedy for toe fungus, often with Oregano essential oil.  Its antispasmodic qualities provide relief to some women suffering from menstrual cramps. Finally, it is a great cough and sore throat remedy. The dōTerra Essential Oil Thyme is of the botanical family Lamiaceae (Labiatae) and is grown in Germany with the oil being processed by steam distillation form the herb.
