You’ve probably grown thyme at some point in your garden or herb pot, it’s commonly used as a herb in cooking. A member of the mint family, it is highly aromatic and a very hardy plant. Thyme oil is extracted from the leaves.
It vaporises wonderfully to release clarifying vapours, which is why aromatherapists choose to use it to help clear stuffy noses and coughs. Its cleansing scent is also a favoured choice for creating a pleasant aroma in the home. Some say that up until the First World War, thyme oil was used as a natural disinfectant in hospitals, so you could try adding it to your homemade cleaning products.
