Characteristics: A top note with a strong aroma, Thyme has a woody, medicinal scent described as spicy and green.

Clinical Studies:

Indications: Thyme is a powerful oil and most aromatherapists do not recommend it for children. Linalool type is an exception and is a softer, gentler thyme while still carrying many of the thyme properties. Ideal oil for children. Used for acne, impetigo, abscesses, wounds, flu, and coughs. Thyme Linalool has a calming effect, yet can act as a stimulant. It stimulates the nervous system, and can help children with ADD. Taking a warm bath with Thyme Linalool can help relieve insomnia and it is thought to help slow hair loss when used as a hair rinse after shampooing. Other uses include compresses for sores, rheumatic pain, insect bites and stings.
