The essential oil of thyme (Thymus vulgaris) contains 20-54% thymol. Thymol belongs to a naturally occurring class of compounds; “biocides”. They are substances that destroy harmful organisms including cancer cells. When mixed with olive oil, it enhances the availability of hydroxytyrosol, olive oil’s most potent anti-cancer compound.

Several research and studies have claimed that the essential oil of the herb Thyme is known to kill lung, ovarian cancer and breast cancer cells.

The essential oil of common thyme (Thymus vulgaris) which usually known as “oil of thyme” contains 20-54% thymol. Thymol belongs to a naturally occurring class of compounds known as “biocides”. They are substances that can destroy harmful organisms. When thymus is used alongside other biocides, such as carvacrol, it has strong antimicrobial attibutes. Scientists tested thyme for its antibacterial activities in vitro toxicology against three human cancer cell lines. What they found is that thyme kills lung cancer cells, oral and ovarian cancer.

Thymus Vulgaris – Herb that helps counter cancer cells:

Thyme got its name in Greece, and is a native to the Mediterranean. It is most commonly used in cooking, mixed with olive oil. When mixed with olive oil, it is known to enhance the availability of hydroxytyrosol, olive oil’s most potent anti-cancer compound. Probably, this is one of the reasons behind the low cancer rate in Greece as that compared to Europe and the rest of USA.

This herb is claimed to kill about 97% of human lung cancer cells. It also finds its place in Ayurveda and traditional medicine. The oncologists at Celal Bayar University in Turkey conducted a research study to analyze the effect of Wild Thyme on breast cancer cells. The study authors concluded that Wild Thyme “may be a promising candidate in the development of novel therapeutic drugs for breast cancer treatment.”

It also contains strong antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. You must also consider adding thyme to your healthy diet focussed on organic fruits, vegetables and whole foods.

If anyone has cancer their best chance is conventional medicine. Complimentary therapy can be used alongside. Never rely on natural remedies for something so serious.
