Thyme Essential Oil In Brief
Thyme Essential Oil is perhaps as equally important when it comes to hormone health as Clary Sage Essential Oil. And, Thyme Essential Oil is hormonally important for both men and women, as both are deficient in Progesterone. Thyme Essential Oil helps to restore optimal Progesterone levels.
The main reason why both men and women are often Progesterone deficient is because of our exposure to environmental Oestrogens.
