“Add two drops to veggie capsules and take during winter time to support a healthy immune system.* Use when gardening to naturally repel insects. Use one to two drops in meat and entrée dishes to add a fresh herbal flavor. Dilute with a carrier oil then apply to targeted areas on the skin to promote healthy-looking skin.”
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 traditional ceremonies. 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 a carrier oil before application. Experimental research suggests that internal use of Thyme essential oil may benefit the immune system, due at least in part to the thymol and carvacrol content.
Hi everyone, Krista Joy Palmer here!
I’m a big fan of doTERRA lemon essential oil, and I wanted to share some of the benefits I’ve experienced with it.
One of the things I love most about lemon oil is its energizing and invigorating aroma. It’s perfect for diffusing in the morning to wake me up and get my day started. I often say: Citrus in the morning to wake up and uplift, trees in the evening to calm, center and rest.
Lemon oil is also great for cleaning and purifying surfaces. I like to add a few drops to a spray bottle of water and use it to wipe down my countertops and kitchen surfaces.
Did you know lemon oil is an easy sticky tag and sticker remover? Try it!
And finally, lemon oil is a natural digestive aid. I sometimes add a drop to my water or tea to help keep my digestive system running smoothly. It’s a gentle detox every day. Consider 2 to 10 drops in your water every day, the benefits are amazing.
There is so much more to this amazing gift of the earth but that’s a start. One of the lowest cost essential oils, it is easy to take it for granted. But, the research keeps pouring in that this powerhouse is a must-have everyday.
