Thyme can invigorate the senses when directly inhaled or diffused. Thyme is known to have antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal properties.
For centuries, Thyme has been used for its remarkable natural properties. The Ancient Egyptians added Thyme to the embalming process. Thyme remedied nervous conditions and repelled insects in Ancient Greece. A symbol of courage throughout the ages, Thyme was added to the bathwater of Roman Soldiers to empower their strength.
