This chemotype or variety of Thyme is extremely high in thymol, a powerful antibacterial and anti-fungal. Its phenol content (over 50% between the thymol and carvacrol) makes it an oil to treat with respect, but in Robert Tisserand’s Skincare Course he mentions that in the various research project he reviews, Thyme Thymol is the thyme chemotype being used.

Thyme thymol is said to be helpful for broncho-pulmonary issues, powerfully anti-infectious (Jennifer Peace Rhind says especially chronic infections), anti-tussive and mucolytic, warming, and an immunostimulant.

Battaglia recommends Thyme thymol for its bronchopulmonary and immunostimulant properties and recommends it for treating colds, coughs, sore throats, bronchitis, and especially asthma and whooping cough because of its antispasmodic properties.

Historically, dried thyme was burned in hospitals to prevent the spread of infection. Our ancestors knew what they were doing. Thyme Oil’s powerful germkilling ability is well known. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory.

Ingrid Martin says it is is especially useful in combatting insect bites and rheumatic inflammation, perhaps by inhibiting the development of prostaglandins (produced by the human body as part of the inflammatory response). For either topical use or diffusion, please first blend with more soothing oils, and always dilute well for use on the skin.

Safety: Tisserand recommends a maximum dermal concentration of 1.3% and cautions against the use of Thyme Thymol orally in the presence of anti-coagulent medication, major surgery or ulcers and other bleeding disorders. Having said that, he also has cited research showing that a 2% dilution of Thyme Thymol in aloe vera gel, or in water(!) is very effective as a treatment for acne vulgaris. Please avoid use with children and during pregnancy.
