One of the earliest nutraceutical plants, Thyme is native to Spain and the western Mediterranean region, extending to southeastern Italy. The flowers are born in clusters near tips of shoots in early summer and then distilled either by steam or water with oil yields peaking in hot summer . Thyme oil is mainly used in flavoring applications in the processed food industry. It can also be tried to fragrance soaps and detergents where its characteristic fresh, antiseptic aroma is desired.
Botanical Name:Thymus vulgaris
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Consistency: Medium and Slightly Oily
Perfumery Note: Middle

Use: A second distillation mellows Red Thyme into White Thyme. Milder than its intensely herbaceous red counterpart, this variety is a bit safer for sensitive skin. [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1995), 57-67.]
Constituents: a-thujene, a-pinene, camphene, B-pinene, p-cymene, a-terpinene, linalool, borneol, B-caryophyllene, thymol, carvacrol. [J.

Avoid contact with sensitive areas, such as eyes. Citrus oils are photosensitive and should not be applied prior to sun exposure. During pregnancy, use only with advise from a trained aromatherapist. For external use only. Keep all bottles out of reach of children.
USAGE: Add 1-3 drops of Bianca Rosa® essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil for massage or skin care needs. Add 5-15 drops (depending on strength desired) to bath water. Add a few drops of oil to a water-filled spray bottle to create a refreshing room spray, or add to diffusers to create warm room scent. CAUTIONS: Always do a test patch when applying oils to the skin (particularly citrus oils) to determine if itching, soreness, or redness develop. Store away from heat and light.
