Researchers at the Technological Educational Institute of Ionian Islands in Greece tested essential oils against drug-resistant staph (MRSA, aka a super-bug). Read the full article here to find out which essential oils killed almost all of the bacterium within an hour! (Okay, so the image to the left is a BIG clue.)
How to Use Thyme Essential Oil:
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris CT thymol), familiar to most as a common seasoning for cooking, produces an essential oil that has valuable cleansing and clarifying properties. It is also notable for its broad-spectrum activity for winter health. dōTERRA’s CPTG Thyme Essential Oil comes from thyme plants grown and harvested in Germany.
To apply topically, dilute thyme with dōTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil before applying.*
To diffuse, add 1-2 drops to diffuser. Can be blended with other oils as an air purifyer (lemon or Citrus Bliss are ideal). Can also be added as an ingredient to homemade cleaners for deep cleaning in the home or office.**
For internal use, dilute and add to capsule. Can also be added to foods as a seasoning (Note: Use a toothpick to swirl in the flavor, not a full drop.)
*Avoid eye contact. May cause skin sensitivity.
**Homemade eco-friendly cleaner with Thyme Essential Oil:
Fill a spray bottle with two cups water ; add 25 drops dōTERRA thyme essential oil and two teaspoons castile (natural soap). Use on hard-to-clean bathroom and kitchen surfaces.
