Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 8 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Everything from herbs to some personal blogs. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

THYME...the essential oil!


See the source image





I have been seeing a lot of info on this awesome essential oil, so I thought I would put everything I have read together in one post for people to read & digest!!!

Thyme essential oil is produced with the leaves & flowers of the plant. It is a member of the mint family and has been used as a medicinal herb since ancient times. It's one of the strongest antioxidants known and there are more than 300 different varieties!! One of the most popular varieties is Thymus vulgaris. Remember to check the Latin to make sure you get the one you want. Do NOT use if you are pregnant or are allergic to thyme.

Thyme essential oil can increase circulation, boosts the immune system, protect heart health & so helps in regulating blood pressure, it's also helpful in removing toxins from the body as it increases urination.

It's an anti-spasmodic, so it can help with coughs, cramps and aches due to spasms. Thyme is an anti-rheumatic, antiseptic, vermifuge, stimulant, expectorant, carminative, stimulant & an all over tonic.

It's also a bechic, which is a new one for me so of course I checked it out and it actually means: pertaining to or relieving a cough. So it can help to cure infections in the chest, lungs & bronchi.

It's become one of the best essential oils to help balance hormones as it increase progesterone levels in the body. It can delay menopause. It can be beneficial for irregular periods. Also helps with mood swings.

Thyme is good as a bug repellant & treats bites and stings. It helps with stress, anxiety, anemia, low energy, arthritis, gout, headaches and more.

Wow sounds like this little essential oil can just about do it all huh??? It's definitely on my 'to get' list just to see what all I can use it for!!
