Hi guys! This week I’m going to be discussing some of my favourite benefits of thyme essential oil! If you’ve been suffering from breakouts, you’re going to want to keep reading this. Thyme essential oil has quickly become one of my favourite essential oils purely for it’s skin and health benefits (not the biggest fan of the smell – it’s pretty potent). It is such a simple yet effective treatment which can not only get rid of blemishes but it can also be used to treat a number of diseases and keep us from getting ill.
- It is an amazing cicatrisant – it heals acne and scars. It is more effective than creams and ointments directed at clearing acne. This is amazing at getting rid of horrible spots; this has beaten my favourite oil up until now for curing acne – tea tree oil. It has once got rid of one of my spots within 30 minutes which is beyond amazing! It does however sting, I have to use literally one drop; anymore than this and my eyes will be watering up and my face will feel an intense burning sensation/pain. It is also great for getting rid of acne scars, scars left behind from injuries, pox, measles and sores.
- You girls are going to love this one. It’s great for relieving us from some of the horror and pain of periods! Thyme essential oil opens obstructed menses and provides us with relief from some of the symptoms that come with menstruation including period cramps, low blood pressure, nausea, depression and mood swings and fatigue. Supposedly using Thyme Oil regularly can delay menopause which keeps us women health, happy and fertile for longer and who doesn’t want that?
- Thyme essential oil is an expectorant which means that it can help to cure infections that can cause coughs and colds. We all need a little extra with this during Winter. It also drains congestion. It is great at boosting our immune system which helps fight off cold and coughs.
- It’s antiseptic properties keep wounds from sores and infections. It is one of the most effective herbal and domestic forms of natural medicine.
- It is anti carcinogenic. For those of you that don’t know a carcinogen is any substance that can cause cancer. Thyme essential oil is one of the strongest antioxidants which has been proven to kill 98% of breast cancer cells. There is also research that proves successful treatment of ovarian and oral cancer.
Overall thyme essential oil is an amazing antiseptic and antibacterial treatment that can be used to heal many wounds and sores as well as infections. It does any amazing job of killing off bacteria and keeping them away from our organs. It is also a great tonic which helps our circulatory system, heart, digestive system, nervous systems, skin and muscles. It also does wonders for our immune system. I get my organic essential oil from Naissance. I warn you to try be very cautious when using this because this stuff is lethal. Use to much of this at once and think the pain your eyes feel from cutting onions x 10. I use only one drop and sometimes mix it with another oil to lessen the blow. However it really is worth it, nothing I’ve tried has got rid of my spots quicker.
