Words by Anny Schneider

This variety of thyme is the most widespread in the wild, and this throughout the northern hemisphere.  

This certified organic aromatic essence was extracted from Bulgarian Serpolet.

It is softer than thymol thyme but is nevertheless bactericidal, pectoral and general tonic.

Used as an adjuvant in a synergy if not very diluted in vegetable oil or liquid soap.

Origin of this essential oil

Essential oil of wild thyme (more commonly called serpolet) from Bulgaria obtained by distillation of the flowers of the plant.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.

More information

It is a sub-shrub used in cooking and as a medicinal plant that is native to parts of southern and eastern Europe.

Wild thyme is considered very rare in France.

The genus Thymus includes about 300 species.

It is emblematic of Mediterranean cuisine and is known in "le midi" under the name of serpoule or serpolet.

The ancient Greeks used thyme as incense in their temples.

The potion made from thyme was believed to give courage and bravery for battles (Thumos means courage in Greek).

The name could also come from the Egyptian tham, name of a plant used to embalm the body or from the Greek root thy, meaning "to exhale a smell".

Pliny already recommended it as an anti-infective.
