To diffuse in a traditional burner, simply fill dish with water and add a few drops of oil on top before lighting the candle. For electrical fragrancers, follow instructions given by the manual. For massage: dilute in a carrier oil and gently massage over the skin. Add a few drops to a handkerchief or inhale directly from the bottle if you are on the go. Dilute in distilled water and pour into spray bottle for an all-natural room fragrancer.
You may find that Thyme blends particularly well with Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary and Pine.
Native to the Mediterranean and Spain but now found throughout Asia, central Europe, China, Russia, USA, Turkey and Tunisia among others. The essential oil is mainly produced in Spain.
Dilute to a maximum of 1% in a carrier oil and use as a muscle rub (you can also blend it with other warming oils such as Black Pepper or Rosemary for more effect). Add a few drops to a burner if suffering from a cold or cough. Add 2-3 drops to a warm bath to help ease the joints.

Love the smell, especially when mixed with lavender essential oil. Really pleased with the oil and how it was packaged for delivery.

Probably my single favourite essential oil, strong, woody, pungent. I love this in the diffuser in the bedroom as an alternative to lavender, and it is surprisingly relaxing.
