The leaves and flowers are antioxidant, antifungal, antiseptic, aromatic, astringent, circulatory stimulant, cleansing, disinfectant, refreshing and stimulating. Active constituents of thyme include: terpenes such as thymol (named for the plant), phenols, labiate tannins and flavonoids. Thyme is so powerful that during World War I it was used to disinfect soldiers' wounds. Recommended for blemished, combination and oil-rich skin, thyme is included in facial steams, masks, cleansers, toners, bath herbs, massage oils, soaps, deodorants and aftershaves. Healing for oozing acne and rashes from poison oak, ivy, sumac or general contact dermatitis, thyme also helps treat arthritis, eczema, insect bites, psoriasis, muscle aches, poor circulation, warts and wounds, and is highly recommended in the treatment of infectious skin diseases. It is used in antifungal preparations such as salves and washes to deter athlete's foot, ringworm, scabies, crabs and lice. It is also included in anti-dandruff products such as shampoos, conditioners and hair rinses and helps keep hair dark and silky. Used in mouthwashes for its antiseptic properties, it also prevents plaque formation. According to E.S. Rohde, this enchanted herb was a favorite of the fairies. This uplifting essential oil provides emotional benefits including ease of: fear and emotional and mental fatigue.
Alcohol is used here as a skin toner, absorption aid, preservative, carrier for aroma and suspension agent. This particular alcohol is 100% organic grain (U.S. grown corn) alcohol. There has been no addition of petroleum during its making (the main cause of alcohol drying the skin), or any other chemical that would disturb its integrity. In fact the only other ingredient added to denature it (a legal necessity, making it undrinkable) is lavender.
The tangerine is a type of mandarin orange. The tree originated in China, and was brought to Europe in 1805, then to North America where much of the world's tangerine essential oil is produced. The essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the fruit.

It is soothing, refreshing and uplifting. Emotional benefits include promoting happiness, peace and ease of: anxiety, depression, grief, nervousness and stress. It can also be used as an appetite suppressant. See Mandarin.
