Thyme has an invigorating effect on your mind and helps you to let go of tension and stress of all kinds and to breathe deeply, to feel freedom and to discover possibilities for yourself in this freedom. Thyme is great as an essential oil for a morning foot massage, when time is too short to massage the whole body. Mix a carrier oil of your choice, such as jojoba oil or almond oil, with 1 drop of thyme oil and massage it into your feet. You can also add a drop of thyme to your shampoo to stimulate your hair roots.
