(Thymus vulgaris)

This plant has flourished in the Mediterranean region and in Europe for at least two millennia. It was a symbol of graceful elegance, strength, activity and bravery during the European age of chivalry. It was used as a culinary spice, tea and oil and still is today. Abundant in the nutrient thiamine, Thyme also includes B-complex, vitamins C and D and trace minerals.

Ancient Romans used Thyme to treat coughs, digestive problems and intestinal worms. Thyme oil started to be used as an antiseptic during the 17th century and became common practice by the mid 1900ís.

Today Thyme is used in mouthwashes and decongestants. Although Thyme is still used extensively by modern herbalists as an external antiseptic, thyme oil may irritate the skin and cause allergic reactions.

Modern herbalists are also known to use Thyme to help relieve sore muscles, counter tiredness and to help ease depression. It is also taken internally to help poor digestion and to soothe sore throats, coughs and other respiratory inflammations.*
