What is Benchmark Thyme?

Benchmark Thyme Oil is the result of many years of research and analysis into finding the best combination of different Thyme plants. It is a uniquely formulated blend of  thyme oils derived from four thyme cultivars. While certain aroma-chemicals such as terpinen-4-ol are present in Tea Tree oil and others like linalool can be found in normal Thyme oil, it is only in Benchmark Thyme that these and numerous other aroma-chemicals synergistically converge, making it truly unparalleled. This unique blend is powerful against bacteria but still gentle on the skin.

While you might associate this fragrant herb with the kitchen, it provides more than just flavour for your roast potatoes - there are a huge range of benefits that Benchmark Thyme can have on your body and mind.

During the pandemic we learned valuable lessons about viruses, the significance of social interaction, and the importance of maintaining proper hygiene. However, many commonly used antibacterial products can be harsh on your skin. If you're seeking effective protection that is gentle on your skin whilst promoting a healthy immune system, consider trying Benchmark Thyme. This natural antiseptic offers powerful antimicrobial properties, even surpassing Tea Tree Oil, to help protect you and your loved ones from viruses and other harmful agents whilst strengthening your immune system. What’s more, it can aid in resolving skin and scalp issues and contribute to the long-term maintenance of healthy skin and hair.
If you do happen to fall ill, Benchmark Thyme is great for respiratory health, with some clinical studies showing it can ease and soothe coughs and chest congestion. Remember that Benchmark Thyme is not a substitute for medical care or antibiotics though. If you have a serious health concern, it is best to contact your doctor.
