    Thyme Oil isn’t supposed to be used internally.
    Eugenol, the active antifungal substance is very aggressive to the liver.

    Thyme oil is safe to take internally IF you are using an oil that is 100% certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG). And the only brand that I know is CPTG is doTERRA.

    I am guessing you need to study a little bit more about it. Thyme Oil isn’t safe internally pure or not pure.!

    Okay, now I’m confused….like that’s a surprise. Jorge are you sure of what you are saying? I usually don’t doubt you one iota but, upon googling around it appears something is amiss.

    Eugenol is found in thyme as well as oregano, cloves and cinnamon apparently.

    Though, what you are saying about eugenol being toxic to the liver, might explain some issues which I just noticed have crept up which I’ve never experienced before which I’ve been thinking had to be associated with one of the supplements somehow or another. Perhaps eugenol is the issue. I’ve used a lot of oregano oil ….. perhaps I shouldn’t be? hummmmm……

    Jorge, do you have any studies about this subject?

    Blessings.

    Eugenol – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EugenolJump to Toxicityā€ˇ: Toxicity. Eugenol is hepatotoxic, meaning it may cause damage to the liver. Overdose is possible, causing a wide range of symptoms …
    ——————————————————————————-

    Abstract
    We present a 15-month-old boy who developed fulminant hepatic failure after ingesting 10 ml of clove oil. After 24 h, the ALT level was in excess of 13,000 U/l, with blood urea and creatinine of 11.8 mmol and 134 micromol/l respectively. The hepatic impairment resolved after intravenous administration of N-acetylcysteine so that 6 h later, the ALT level was approximately 10,000 U/l. His liver synthetic function and clinical status improved over the next 4 days. This is the first such case report of its kind in Europe. Analysis of a national database revealed a 14-fold increase in home accidents related to aromatherapy from 1994-1999. Clove oil has important hepatotoxic effects. CONCLUSION: Recent growth in aromatherapy sales has been accompanied by an unfortunate increase in accidental poisoning from these products. Clove oil warrants special attention. Ingesting as little as 10 ml causes hepatotoxicity which can be treated with N-acetylcysteine.

    Jorge, I was not saying that ALL Thyme oil is safe to take internally but I was saying that doTERRA time oil is safe for internal use. That is why I did back it up with a couple websites. There are plenty more out there if you would like more information on it.

    Liciabelle,
    The active antifungal compound in Thyme oil is Eugenol. Eugenol is very aggressive to the liver. It is hard for me to believe some Thyme oil be safe internally even when some “natural” focused websites promote it.

    Maybe Able can clue us into which type of Red Thyme Oil is intended as part of the protocol.

    I agree with Jorge, Thyme oil is very aggravating to the gut and irritating to the liver. Most essential oils are not a good idea to take internally for they contain harsh concentations of alcohol like chemicals in them. Candida sufferers can have sensitivities to the alcohol like chemicals in essential oils. Just like they are sensitive to strong odors, chemicals etc…The same kind of sensitivity can happen when ingesting it internally–an allergic type reaction to the alcoholic like chemicals in the oils.

    Some of the chemical constituents in thyme oil: Phenols,linalol, borneol, alcohols<14%, etcc...

    The issue with a lot of essential oils(internally) is the amount of aggravation that they can cause on the GI tract and liver because of the harsh alcohol like chemicals in them. Most of the oils are highly anti-bacteria and I don’t see any good long term research that has been done on the long term effects of some of these oils on your good flora. I think essential oils should be for external use only. They are too harsh to be used internally. The only acception might be someone who is fighting cancer—they use frankincense internally for brain cancer. My wife is a distributor for doterra oils, doterra is the best brand out there. She provided me an essential oil book that has the chemical composition of a lot of essential oils. I told her not do to any type of essential oil internally/especially not daily(even lemon oil—Lemon oil can have up to 12% aldehydes), because of their alcohol like chemicals and their potential effect on all bacteria(Good+bad).

    I just think there are better/less harsh approaches towards candida than using essential oils internally.
