I announce to you all that this is the last entry (double) of the home essential oils kit series, taken from our aromatherapy course. It’s a double entry because the Thymus family has quite a few members, and we’re going to focus on cousins Thujanol and Linalool. Be careful not to confuse with another very common of the same family: Thymol. It reminds me of a joke: Thujanol, Linalool and Thymol are on a boat …
it detoxifies the liver, which is called in scientific language: hepatocyte stimulant.
It is also antibacterial and antiviral like Linalool. In case of yeast infection, you can place a few drops of pure oil on the area and rub, with the two types of Thymus (2 g
out twice a day). Thyme Thujanol is mainly used in the following cases:
angina: then take orally 2 drops mixed in honey. Or by the cutaneous route: 2 pure drops to apply on the throat and the lymph nodes, 3 times a day for 3 days.
physical / mental exhaustion (because it contains a balancing neurotonic): in which case we have a massage with 3 drops mixed with 4 drops of vegetable oil on the solar plexus, 2 times a day. Take a week break after three weeks of use. All the same!
Even the teeth can benefit, if you have a problem at this level put two drops of pure oil on the tooth in question, twice a day until improvement.
Because it has warming properties, the Thujanol version cures certain cases of chilliness, here is the dosage: orally take 2 drops mixed with honey, 3 times a day.
In cases of ENT infections and fatigue, Linalool is used instead. In addition it is sweet (more than thymol and savory, other members of the Thymus family) so children, the elderly (not pregnant women) can use it. In diluted on the other hand. Even in its diffusion form, it must be mixed with other essential oils.
Its properties include:
So we will think about using it in case of sore throat or ENT infections:
2 drops in 4 drops of vegetable oil on the affected area, 4 times a day, until improvement.
or in the event of skin fatigue:
3 drops along the spine and / or on the solar plexus, 3 times a day. Observe a week break after 3 weeks of use.
In both cases, it is not recommended for infants under 3 months and pregnant women under three months. In fact, Thymus Linalool is not recommended for pregnant women throughout their pregnancy, which suggests that cousin Thujanol is sweeter than red thyme.
Let us not forget that Eucalyptus Radiata is also very useful in case of fatty cough and Ravintsara ideal for strengthening the immune system, even in the youngest.
