Thyme Red Essential Oil

Thyme Red Essential Oil is also known as Thyme Linalool Essential Oil. This type of Thyme Essential Oil is potentially less irritating to the skin than other types of Thyme Essential Oil.

Thyme Red Essential Oil is profoundly antioxidant and possesses many health benefits. It is deeply antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, and is one of the best essential oils for maintaining and promoting hormone balance within both men and women due to its progesterone promoting and balancing effects.

In addition, when aromatherapy oils, with a shorter shelf life, are blended with Thyme Red Essential Oil, this helps to extend the life of the other oils used. Thyme Red Essential Oil positively influences the longevity of essential oils and carrier oils within the blend. This is due to the antioxidant concentration of Thyme Red Essential Oil.

Thyme Red Essential Oil Science

Current research confirms the broad spectrum of biological and therapeutic effects of thymol and thyme EO. Antibiofilm action includes bacteria such as E. coli, L. monocytogenes, P. putida, S. aureus and (MRSA) methicillin-resistant S. aureus. Antifungal properties have been demonstrated for Fusarium spp., Aspergillus spp., Candida spp., as well as C. neoformans and C. laurentii, which were distinguished by resistance to standard antifungal therapy due to their biofilm-forming ability. Activity against parasites such as L. infantum has also been observed. Thyme EO and extracts show diverse antiviral activity against such viruses as influenza virus, HSV-1, HSV-2, and HIV-1. In silico studies on the anti-Sars-CoV-2 activity of thymol are also very promising.

Thyme Red Essential Oil For Hormone Health

Thyme Red Essential Oil is known to promote the production of progesterone, making it an exceptionally important essential oil in this modern world. Sadly, both men and women are being swamped by synthetic oestrogens, known as xenooestrogens. We are being subjected daily to these oestrogen-mimicking synthetic substances.

Xenooestrogens leech from plastics into food in the food supply chain, especially when plastic is heated. The chlorine in our water is xenooestrogenic, as are all of the fire retardants on all of our soft furnishings. This includes our sofas, cushions, mattresses and pillows.

Thyme oil is one of the strongest antioxidants known, and it has been used as a medicinal herb since ancient times. Thyme supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous and other body systems. It’s one of the best essential oils for hormones because it balances hormone levels — helping women with menstrual and menopausal symptoms. It also protects the body from dangerous diseases and ailments, such as stroke, arthritis, fungal and bacterial infections, and skin conditions.

Thyme essential oil has progesterone balancing effects; it benefits the body by improving progesterone production. Both men and a lot of women are low in progesterone, and low progesterone levels have been linked with infertility, PCOS and depression, as well as other imbalanced hormones within the body.

Research discussed in the Proceedings of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine noted that of 150 herbs tested for progesterone production that inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells, thyme oil is one of the top six to have the highest estradiol and progesterone binding. For this reason, using thyme oil is a great way to naturally balance hormones in the body; plus, it’s far better than turning to synthetic treatments, such as hormone replacement therapy, which can make you dependent on prescription drugs, mask symptoms while developing diseases in other parts of the body and often cause serious side effects.

By stimulating hormones, thyme oil is also known to delay menopause; it also serves as a natural remedy for menopause relief because it balances hormone levels and relieves menopausal symptoms, including mood swings, hot flashes and insomnia.

Fibroids are growths of connective tissue that occur in the uterus. Many women experience no symptoms from fibroids, but they can cause heavy periods. The causes of fibroids include high levels of estrogen and low levels of progesterone due to obesity, hypothyroidism, perimenopause or low-fiber diets.

Because thyme oil increases progesterone levels in the body, it serves as a natural fibroid treatment. Rub two drops of thyme oil on the abdomen twice daily to treat fibroids and relieve symptoms of PMS and menstruation.

Thyme Oil Kills Infections, Increases Circulation & Balances Hormones

Other important hormone balancing oils include Clary Sage Essential Oil and Marjoram Wild Essential Oil.

Wild As The Wind carries several different Clary Sage Essential Oils. Alternatives include Wildcrafted Organic Clary Sage Essential Oil and Organic Clary Sage Essential Oil.

Thyme Red Essential Oil Blends Well With

Thyme Red Essential Oil Alternatives

There is another form of Thyme Essential Oil which is commonly available, called Thyme White Essential Oil. However, as I broadly advocate using properly diluted Thyme Essential Oil directly on our skin, Thyme Red Essential Oil is the better option for these purposes as it is less likely to cause any irritation when applied to our skin.

The compelling reasons to topically apply Thyme Red Essential Oil is because it:

  • Supports hormone health
  • Promotes progesterone production
  • Helps maintain progesterone balance
  • Helps to detox Xenoestrogens

***It is imperative to always dilute all Thyme Essential Oils prior to topical application. Please consult How To Use Essential Oils for more information about how to blend aromatherapy oils.

    I seriously love this oil, I have been using it for about 3 months now. I find it helps plateau my hormone imbalance from the menopause and I have found its easing my digestive / anxiety issues.
