Note: This may be the last of Benchmark Thyme anywhere, for a while, or possibly again. We've spoken to the creator of this exceptional blend, Maggie Tisserand, and she does not know if she will be able to make it again as access to all varieties of the plants sufficient enough to craft the formula are not available.
About the Oil: Benchmark Thyme is not a single essential oil. It is a blend of four thyme species. This blend was formulated by Maggie Tisserand, a pioneer of aroma-medicine and author of "Aromatherapy vs MRSA". Tisserand created Benchmark Thyme to specifically treat infections after wonderful results from many years of research and analysis. We suggest reading all about it from the link below. It's a solid option among aromatherapists for getting rid of" superbugs" resistant to synthetic therapies, and for use in formulations. It's also a wonderful substitute or replacement for tea trees and can be used to alleviate stomach upset.
Aroma: It is a little bit "hotter" than the c.t. linalool, but not as hot as "red" thyme, the most common variety.
