Thyme Oil occurs as a colorless, yellow, or red liquid with a characteristic, pleasant odor and a pungent, persistent taste. It is the volatile oil obtained by distillation from the flowering plant Thymus vulgaris L., or Thymus zygis L., and its var. gracilis Boissier (Fam. Labiatae). It is soluble in alcohol, in propylene glycol, and in most vegetable oils.
Function: Flavoring agent.

Identification: The infrared absorption spectrum of the sample exhibits relative maxima at the same wavelengths as those of a typical spectrum as shown in the section on Infrared Spectra, using the same test conditions as specified therein.
Assay: Not less than 40%, by volume, of phenols.
Angular Rotation: Between −3° and −0.1°.
Refractive Index: Between 1.495 and 1.505 at 20°.
Solubility in Alcohol: Passes test.
Specific Gravity: Between 0.915 and 0.935.
Water-Soluble Phenols: Passes test.
