Absolute Aromas Essential Oil: Thyme Sweet 5ml
Sweet Thyme has a clean, herbaceous, green aroma and is very useful during bouts of illness. It is a great oil for lethargy, digestive problems and respiratory conditions.
The distillation of the oil is mainly undertaken in Spain but also occurs elsewhere in the Mediterranean region.There are many different species of Thyme and within Thymus Vulgaris, there are a variety of chemotypes that change the constituent make-up of the oil significantly.
The most common chemotypes are "Thymol" and "Carvacrol", which contain high levels of toxic Phenols (up to 60% Thymol and Carvacrol). Absolute Aromas offers "Sweet Thyme", which is sweeter, less toxic and less irritant than the Thymol and Carvacrol types, with a maximum 3% concentration of these components.
