About the Plant

Did you know that some plant species behave almost chameleon-like, producing essential oils with different effects depending on their geographical origin? Thyme, rosemary and basil are exemplary representatives of this unique phenomenon.

Thyme, with its different varieties, can be a real helper for the immune system - especially in the cold season.

It is really exciting: we are talking about one and the same plant, which simply grows in different places and produces essential oils. Yet these oils can have completely different effects depending on where they come from! Isn't that fascinating?

Thyme Cineol - for example, contains 32% 1,8-cineol (an oxide, also known as eucalyptol) with 11% camphor (a ketone). The oxide component suggests that this oil might do well in inhalant blends....

Thyme originates from France and Spain. In spring, the dwarf shrub develops stems and small leaves. The inflorescence shows lace-like arrangements, with flowers being pink, white or light purple. Flowering time is from May to June.

The fragrance can be described as spicy and lemony. The main chemical constituents are linalol, linanyl acetate, geraniol, geranyl acetate, beta-caryophyllene, alpha-terpineol, borneol, these constituents are known for their antiviral and antimicrobial effects.

It goes well with bergamot, lemon, lemon balm, lavender, lavandin, marjoram, pine, rosemary, etc.

The cosmetic and perfume industries use it as an ingredient in many products. In many food products the herbal substance is contained, especially in drinks and meat products. Thyme has always been one of the most important plants in natural medicine in Europe, used and praised for its ability to invigorate the mind and release tension. The herb has already been known as a useful remedy for the Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.
