  • My friend and fellow aromatherapist, Crystal, has personally used this oil in blends for clients fighting MRSA and stubborn, slow healing wounds and has seen great success.
  • One diabetic client in particular had trouble with staph infections on his arms that would not heal. He had been exposed to many years of antibiotics and no longer responded to them. Benchmark thyme in his wound healing blend worked beautifully and he was able to get all of the sores to heal.
  • Crystal has also recently used benchmark thyme and juniper berry in aloe vera gel for a horse who had been fighting thrush for 14 years unsuccessfully. His thrush cleared with just 3 applications! His owner was thrilled - as was Crystal! If you would like to try this the recipe is:
    1. 2 oz. Aloe Vera Gel
    2. 15 drops Juniper Berry
    3. 30 drops Benchmark Thyme
    4. Apply it 3x daily as needed.
