It’s about Thyme! The Remarkable Thymus vulgaris
Are you utilizing all of the extraordinary benefits of Thyme in your clinical practice? Have you been confused about which chemotype to use and when? In this presentation Valerie will start from the beginning – describing the historical significance and use of Thymus vulgaris, and looking into how the earliest physicians used the plant in traditional herbal and aromatic medicine.
An in-depth review of the five chemotypes from Provence, along with their unique differences, will be discussed in addition to detailed safety considerations. And from a totally holistic point of view, Valerie will present not only the scientific evidence-based research, but also the new and innovative clinical applications, and the bio-energetic and spiritual aspects of the Thymus species. Aromatherapists will increase their knowledge of this common herb and sharpen their skills in integrating the various chemotypes into their clinical practice with confidence.
