Every oil has an emotional component. Thyme essential oil is The Oil of Releasing & Forgiving. Thyme is one of the most powerful cleansers of the emotional body and assists in addressing trapped feelings which have been buried for a long time. It reaches deep within the body and soul, searching for unresolved negativity. Thyme brings to the surface old, stagnant feelings. It is particularly helpful in treating the toxic emotions of hate, rage, anger and resentment, which cause the heart to close. Thyme empties the soul of all negativity, leaving the heart wide open. in this state of openness, an individual begins to feel tolerance and patience for others. As the heart opens more and more, it it able to receive love and offer forgiveness. Thyme teaches, “It’s time to move forward and let go.” As individuals forgive, they free themselves from emotional bondage. Thyme transforms hate and anger into love and forgiveness.
