Thyme thuyanol: Powerful yet Gentle

The different chemotypes of Thyme demonstrate a phenomenon that contributes mightily to the distinction of French Style aromatherapy. Among the many chemotypes of Thyme,  type thuyanol stands out as it combines the antimicrobial power of the phenolic Thymes with the gentleness of the linalool varieties. The oil has been so successful that now larger quantities are cultivated in areas of France beyond the Provençal region.

Wild Thyme

The Site: Haute Provence

Thyme thuyanol is a classic example of how the ambitious and holistically-oriented distillers in Provence are always searching for therapeutically exciting cultivars.


The original areas where this type of Thyme was first identified were most likely the Var valley to the north of Nice and the gentle slopes of the Département des Alpes de Haute-Provence.
