Thyme Essential Oil Distillation, British Thyme Oil

Our Thyme Essential Oil grown and distilled on the Surrey Hills of Britain

During June 2020 we harvested and distilled our Thyme essential oil, uplifting, clarifying and full of natural antiseptic and cleansing properties

Thyme essential oil has an uplifting and clarifying scent which energises and feels you with positivity. Studies have shown that Thyme Oil has an ability to clean bacteria, support heart health and alleviate inflammation in the body.

Thyme blends well with Lavender, Eucalyptus and Citrus Oils.

Our British Thyme Essential Oil and British Thyme Floral Water will be available to purchase online from mid July. You can purchase our British Thyme related products online and during the summer (from July 8, 2020) at our Farm Shop (Oak Tree Farm, Banstead, Surrey, SM7 3BE).
