Plant Description: The Thyme plant is an evergreen perennial shrub that grows up to 45 cm (18 inches) in height. It has a woody root system, a multi-branched stem, small elliptical greenish gray aromatic leaves and pale purple or white flowers. Thyme is derived from the Greek word 'thymos' that means 'perfume'.

This has a strong fragrance that is more herbaceous and medicinal (as opposed to use in cosmetics/perfumery). I use it for my hair and scalp, mixed with other essential oils and in a carrier oil. It has a brownish red color to it. Very good quality.
Amazing disinfectant qualities! Great to spray on your kitchen & bathroom counters as a natural alternative to harsh cleaning chemicals.
