The name has two possible Greek origins. The first being thymon which means to fumigate. This comes from the herb being used as an incense. The second is thumon meaning courage. Thyme was associated with bravery.
This oil may interact with certain drugs and may be choleretic. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
