Additional information

Indian Thyme Oil is extracted from the seeds (which are also the fruits) of the Trachyspermum ammi plant, a small annual herb native to India and the Middle East. It’s also known as Ajowan. The common name “Indian Thyme” is given because it has a strong, thyme-like aroma, but it is not a true thyme oil. True thyme oils are extracted from the Thymus genus of plants, while Trachyspermum ammi is a member of the Apiaceae family.

Both Indian Thyme and Common Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) are rich in Thymol. (In fact, Indian Thyme has a higher Thymol content.) Both oils contain gamma-terpinene, p-cymene, and beta-pinene, as well as other volatile compounds. Both have a similar strong, thyme-like scent, with Indian Thyme oil having a slightly more medicinal note.
Indian Thyme essential oil is an economical alternative to other Thyme oils and can be used in all the same applications as Common Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) oil.
Indian Thyme oil can be used in perfume compositions. It has a complex, aromatic scent that is both fresh and spicy, often used as a top note in perfumes, but also used as a middle note or base note.

It is used in skin and hair care products to cleanse and moisturize. It is used in oral care products.

Indian Thyme oil is a food ingredient that can be used in teas, soups, stews, sauces, and marinades. It is used as a food preservative to extend the shelf life and improve the nutritional quality of animal feed. (Note that it is not commonly used in human food preservation as it can alter the taste of the food.)

Because of its high thymol content, and thymol being a natural insecticide, Indian Thyme oil is an effective natural pesticide against a variety of pests, including ants, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Thymol works by disrupting the nervous system of pests, causing them to become paralyzed and die. Thymol also has repellent properties and can help to deter pests from entering your home or garden.

Note that Thyme Red is the first distillation of the plant. Thyme Red has a deep red color and is high in thymol, giving it a strong, pungent aroma, high in thymol. Thyme White essential oil is the second distillation of the plant. Thyme White is a pale yellow or colorless oil, lower in thymol giving it a milder aroma, but higher in linalool which gives Thyme White a more floral and citrusy scent.
