You might have heard about thyme as a seasoning ally, but did you know that essential oil can also be obtained from the thyme plant?
Although you can use thyme as a herb in the kitchen, you must know you can also take advantage of its properties in other ways... Its many properties are present in foods, cosmetics, and also toiletries!
Thyme oil can be used as an essential oil, even though there is no research that supports its benefits using it alone. But you can add it to the list of your favorite oils due to its antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. Did you know it?
There is some evidence that suggests thyme oil can be helpful to fight bacteria that causes acne. This can be attributed to its antibacterial properties, although compared with other ingredients thyme oil might not be the most effective one.
Another use you can give to the oil is to fight hair loss. It can be combined with a carrier oil to massage the scalp. Remember that the results may be seen when associated with other oils.
Finally, some research about heart disease suggests that one of the compounds present in thyme oil, the carvacrol, can be helpful to face it due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
