Cautions and comments
To be used with care because of the high phenol content and avoided in pregnancy. Red thyme is very effective against bacterial and viral infections. ‘Red’ thyme is called red because it used to be distilled in copper distillation units. The phenols reacted with the copper and turned the oil red. In reality, the oil is a brownish yellow.
