Thought to impart courage to its bearer, Thyme was
given to knights and warriors before they went into
battle by ladies of the Middle Ages. During this same
period, Thyme was often placed beneath pillows to help
promote a peaceful sleep and to ward off nightmares.
The ancient Greeks used Thyme in their baths and
burned it as an incense in their temples while the
Egyptians used it in their embalming rites. Today, Thyme
is commonly used as a seasoning, but it also produces

Fractionated Coconut Oil before application. Thyme has
specific chemotypes that produce a broad-spectrum
activity in promoting winter-time health. Including Thyme
essential oil in food dishes or consuming one to two
drops a day will promote a healthy immune system when
seasonal threats are high.
