Thyme oil

CAS No. FRAG-9862-A

See below for more description

Standardised, redistilled thyme, from Thymus vulgaris grown in France but, as always with White Thyme, corrected to standard chemistry.

According to Arctander“White Thyme Oil, when correctly produced and genuine, is a pale yellow liquid similar in odor to … red thyme, yet somewhat sweeter, less terpeney or sharp. lt is also less herbaceous. Truly, it should be a redistilled red thyme oil.” 

“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.” 

He goes on to suggest that inferior white thyme may be a compound of pine and other oils or fractions containing little thymol – one of the largest components, and key to the odour character, of the true thyme oils.
