Thyme is a powerful spice oil. It is a hard working hot oil. Remember to dilute it when using it topically. Be careful using it during pregnancy and with people who have epilepsy and high blood pressure. It is like the brother to Oregano oil. Use it for your respiratory, immune system, cleansing, and cellular support. Thyme oil is found in the DDR Prime oil blend assisting in cellular health.
“Thyme is thought to impart courage to its bearer. Thyme was given to knights and warriors before they went into battle by ladies of the Middle Ages. During this same period, Thyme was often placed beneath pillows to help promote a peaceful sleep and to ward off nightmares. The ancient Greeks used Thyme in their baths and burned it as an incense in their temples while the Egyptians used it in their embalming rites. Today, Thyme is commonly used as a seasoning, but it also produces a potent essential oil that has cleansing and purifying effects for the skin; however, due to its high thymol content, Thyme should be diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil before application. Thyme has specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system.”1

Thyme oil is the oil of Releasing & Forgiving. According to the Emotions & Essential Oils, the negative emotions Thyme oil helps to shift are as follows: Unforgiving, angry, rage, hate, bitter, resentful, emotional bondage.
When we hold onto anger, bitterness, resentfulness and other negative emotions we stop our cells from letting go of the darkness and negativity. This stubbornness comes from fear that we will be wronged and hurt again. In reality, we are the ones who chose to let it happen to us. Think of Thyme oil as a wrecking ball ready to demolish the old thinking to make room for the new. Developing a stronger sense of self-love and acceptance will help us release the anger and bitterness. One part of self-love is being forgiving and patient with yourself.
I know at times, I struggle to forgive situations and myself for not being better even though my mind wants to forgive. Your brain knows you should let go and change but your emotion just holds on too tightly. Then we get even more mad at ourselves for being hurt, for fearing or not forgiving and forgetting. Thyme goes inside you and powerfully helps you shift those physical and emotional bondage that you feel has a hold on you.
The positive properties we can incorporate are the following: Forgiving, tolerant, patient, openhearted, understanding, emotional release.
Mental Stimulating: 1 drop of diluted Thyme oil and rub over sternum (middle of your chest).6
Forgive: Thyme oil is found in the Forgive Renewal Blend. Smell regularly as you shift negative emotions out and receive positive renewing energy.
I have a new appreciation of Thyme. It is a powerfully liberating oils. Thyme oil is for those who are hard on themselves and often self-destructive. It is for those who feel that they need to explain themselves, defend, and justify to others, so people truly understand you or so people don’t misunderstand you. We mistakenly think that if we don’t ‘beat ourselves up’ we will repeat silly mistakes.
Thyme is a big brother that can help you along. Thyme reminds us to put things into proper perspective and that the harsh punishment we inflicted on ourselves isn’t necessary. We can be patient, tolerant, and understanding of ourselves. Thyme is protective and reminds us that it is ok to accept and love ourselves.
To help us be tolerant and patient with ourselves we can decide now to accept who we are. Accepting ourselves means we accept our weaknesses too. It doesn’t mean we settle for less, it simply means we allow ourselves to be human. We don’t have to wait till we strengthen all our weaknesses to be happy and confident.
Thyme allows us to keep moving forward spiritually as we release the negative and forgive ourselves. Thyme helps transform that hate into love and patience. Now we can truly begin to love ourselves and others at a deeper level.
