We are at a moment in time when our planet and nature need our help.
We aim to instil a love of nature and consolidate the understanding that in nurturing nature, we nurture ourselves.
It has long been established that nature inspires and nourishes, and spending time outside has many positive wellbeing effects. Each of our products encapsulates fragrances evocative of the wild, establishing a connection to nature wherever you are.
In a study undertaken by the University of East Anglia in 2018, scientists concluded that immersion in the outdoors positively impacted a myriad of ailments, reducing the risk of type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death, preterm birth, stress, and high blood pressure. This revelation inextricably links the wellbeing of the natural world to that of human life.
It is true that those who engage with nature are more likely to nurture it.
It has also been shown that exposure to nature triggers actions to help preserve it.
From the hazy fragrant swathes of delicate flowers and grasses to the birdsong and accompanying buzz, flutter and chirping of insects, a wildflower meadow is a wonderful thing, increasingly rare and threatened, they are definitely worth celebrating. In one square meter of wildflower meadow, the diversity of plants which in turn support the wildlife is astonishing, meadowlands being arguably Britain’s most biodiverse habitat.
With a glorious diversity of flora and fauna the water meadows at Thyme form an important wetland habitat. They are home to some breathtaking plant life, in June it is a sea of wild orchids and birdlife from a family of native barn owls to the reed warblers who have travelled thousands of miles from sub-Saharan Africa to hatch and raise their young.
With river mint at its heart, we have carefully blended botanical essential oils to create our founding scent, emblematic and in celebration of the water meadows at Thyme.
In the water meadows, the air is filled with the unforgettable scent of river mint, the deep green leaves readily releasing their essential oil as you brush past. A medicinally important plant, the essential oils promote respiratory health and deep breathing, with soothing, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-microbial properties.
