Personal Experience, Research, Possible Actions

 "The uniqueness of Benchmark Thyme is that it is a combination of aroma-chemicals (see chart below) that is unique in its overall composition. Some aroma-chemicals like terpinen-4-ol can be found in Tea Tree oil and some, like linalool, can be found in Thyme Linalool, but only in Benchmark Thyme do all of these aroma-chemicals (and more) come together in a synergistic combination; all from our four thyme cultivars".

Studies have been done to show the effectiveness against MRSA with great results in 2 hours.
