The main active constituent of the thyme herb is thymol. It is very popular for its potent anti-septic properties. Its topical application is known to be beneficial in treating rashes, cuts, burns, sores and other skin conditions. Additionally, its anti-fungal property also makes it extremely effective against fungi, which are responsible for toe-nail infections. Thyme exhibits a stimulating action on both, the blood circulation as well as the nervous system; while relieving inflammation as well. This greatly helps in relaxing tired and over-worked feet muscles. Furthermore, the herb’s anti-oxidant property keeps the skin elastic; and along with its astringent action keeps it toned.
