  • Do not include your photos within the body of your text. Please attach separately.
  • Articles are not advertisements for a specific product or service. Leave the plugs for your bio.


  • Accepted article length: 500-2000 words. We believe the article will end naturally when the story does.
  • Accepted language: English (USA)
  • Preferred format: Word .doc or .docx
  • High resolution photos must be yours (or include permission to reprint).
  • Please only submit articles that have been proofread and corrected for grammar and punctuation. All data must be fact-checked prior to submission.
  • When mentioning a plant, herb, oil, etc., please refer to it the first time using its botanical name, then the common name of the plant.
  • All references must be cited via numbered notations within the article and a full list of numbered references at the end of the article.
  • Articles should be informative and not a sales pitch.


Each author whose article is accepted for publication will receive the following in exchange for their article:

  • A complimentary copy of the issue in which your article is published
  • A 50% discount on extra copies. So, if you want 3 copies, the first is free then you will be charged $4.95 (instead of $9.90) for the second and third copy. There is no limit to the number of copies at discount, but we would need to know when your article is submitted so we can adjust printing numbers, if needed.
  • An author feature space – on our Contributors page – that includes your bio, photograph and contact information
  • Inclusion in the Business Directory in the issue in which your article appears ($25 value), as well as online.
  • Monetary compensation $50 for a 1,000-2,000-word article with photos


  • Articles submitted are not guaranteed to be published in the magazine. We will let you know, within 10 business days, if we plan to include your article in the magazine or if your article is not a good fit for our publication at this time.
  • Photos submitted with your article are not guaranteed to be included with your article in the magazine.
  • Please do not submit your article to other publications until one year after it has been published in our magazine. If an article published in our magazine is going to be published elsewhere after this period, please include the following statement in the article: “This article was originally published in the [specific] issue of Therapeutic Thymes Magazine.”


  • A brief professional bio (100 – 200 words approximately)
  • Your contact information (web address, email address, phone number, relevant social media links, etc. – however you’d like readers to be able to find/contact you)
  • A professional quality headshot (300dpi) + photographer credit/contact information (Please make sure you have the photographer’s permission to use the photo.)
