Thymol – Terpene Profile
The primary flavor component of its namesake, thyme, Thymol is also found in an abundance of fruits, herbs, and cheese, including blueberry, mango, licorice and Gruyere. With a forest taste profile of wood and spice along with a gentle, sweet aroma, Thymol lends itself well to hard candies and dessert. As a natural disinfectant, Thymol is an established healing agent in septic, fungal, and bacterial disorders. As such, the terpene is a key component in oral healthcare products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
