Thyme Leaved Savory
(Satureja thymbra L.)
The essential oil of savory is rich carvacrol and thymol that give it strong antifungal and antimicrobial properties. For outside use we dilute 25-30 drops of essential oil in 100ml of massage oil, St. John’s wort oil works really good with it. We can use the mixture in massages in order to relive rheumatic and arthritic pains. The massage oil can also be used on the skin against bacterial and fungal diseases.
It should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women and we should avoid inhaling it.
