Thyme Infused Oil
Label: Beneficial Botanicals

Thyme oil can be used as a gargle mixed with a little water to relieve sore throat, kill bacteria, and inhibit the growth of flu viruses.
As a powerful antiviral for topical application, the oil can be applied to shingles or herpes eruptions, drastically reducing the healing time to as little as 3 days. Follow up with Vitamin E Oil to minimize scarring. Combine with Infused Plantain Oil to effectively reduce burning and itching.
How to Make Easy, Effective Topical Salves:
For Herpes & Shingles Eruptions - Combine equal amounts infused oils of Thyme and Plantain with beeswax at a low heat, then cool.
For Poison Ivy & Poison Oak Rash - Combine equal amounts infused oils of Thyme, Plantain, and Jewelweed with beeswax at a low heat, then cool.
The antibacterial and antiviral effects of Thymus vulgaris have been documented in clinical studies. Interestingly, because of the slight variance in its chemical makeup from one batch to the next, unlike chemically constructed pharmaceutical drugs, it is believed that this is the reason bacteria and viruses are unable to develop a resistance to the natural plant remedy.
