Thymus vulgaris is perhaps the most commonly used species of Thyme. It finds its popularity pre-dominantly as an ingredient for cooking but does also see use in essential oils. The name Thymus vulgaris comes from the Latin vulgaris meaning ‘common’ in the sense of being widespread or abundant. There are many different chemotypes of Thymus vulgaris, with the thymol type being the most popular.
