I just bought a guide to get started in aromatherapy, since I have always been interested in this topic. I read that many aromas have great healing power. For example, thyme helps you recover sooner from a cold, because it has antibacterial and antiviral properties. I'm so lucky! I live on a farm in the countryside surrounded by thyme plants. This afternoon, I'm going to cut a little and I'm going to make a good homemade oil. We must take advantage of this opportunity that nature gives us.
