Description: Thyme oil is known as nature's embalming oil because the ancient Egyptians would use it in their embalming processes. It has also been used for its natural anti-bacterial properties in different holistic health modalities. It is also found in many commercial respiratory salves. It is widely known throughout Greece for its ability to fight off insects and other pests. Aromatic practitioners will use it to add to formulas for combating seasonal illness. Thyme is often used in DIY anti-bacterial sprays. 1 ounce of distilled water combined with 20 drops of thyme in an essential oil safe spritzer bottle can be used to clean countertops and other household surfaces.
