Thyme (/taɪm/) is the herb (dried aerial parts) of some members of the genus Thymus of aromatic perennial evergreen herbs in the mint family Lamiaceae. Thymes are relatives of the oregano genus Origanum, with both plants being mostly indigenous to the Mediterranean region. Thymes have culinary, medicinal, and ornamental uses, and the species most commonly cultivated and used for culinary purposes is Thymus vulgaris. – Wikipedia
Thyme Oil Red (aromatherapy)
Red Thyme Oil is a brownish-red, orange-red or grayish-brown colored liquid, rich and powerful, sweet, and warm-herbaceous in odor, somewhat spicy and distinctly aromatic. The flavor is equally warm, somewhat biting, but not bitter or tarry. A sharp and lasting mouthfeel is accompanied by a spicy-herbaceous taste and an outstanding richness in body. There should be no bitterphenolic, cadelike or tarlike notes detectable, but there may be a short bite of terpeney, cymene-like topnotes in poorer oils.
