I already wrote previously all about thyme and the many benefits it can provide. This thyme oil has many benefits and uses for human health too.
Wondering what to use it for? It is mostly used for homemade skincare products like hand cream, body cream, lip balm, lotions, and more. Check out the recipe about how to make thyme body butter. I always use easy recipes and try to explain the best I can, so be sure to check them out.
Also, you can use it for Alopecia Areata, do inhalation against cough and sinuses, headache, massage, and for bathing. Its shooting effect helps with irritated and dry skin.
It is well known that herbal oils are used in Italian and many other cuisines. This oil is one of the secret ingredients for very delicious spaghetti recipes. Of course, you can use it in many other dishes too.
The anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and calming properties of thyme make this oil perfect for skincare products. It softens the skin and reduces redness and irritation. You can read more about these uses and benefits in my previously mentioned article about thyme.
It is a very simple and easy recipe. I choose to use cold infusion like most of the time. There is also sun infusion – where you place the oil and herbs to infuse on direct sunlight, normally wrapped with something because the light can destroy the useful properties. Heat infusion – where you use medium heat to help to infuse the herbs to oil and it is usually is the fastest way to do this infusion.
You can use fresh or dried thyme. If you use the fresh herb, let it stand one night from the day it is harvested to evaporate the remaining moisture. That will prevent the spoiling of the oil too early. Lately, I use dried herbs for infusion, but you can use it both.
