About Thyme

The history of thyme can be traced as far back as during the lifetime of Hippocrates around 460BCE to 370BCE. This was a time when herbal medicine was prominent and people grew plants and herbs in their gardens. There are different species of thyme but the most commonly cultivated and edible specie is known as “Thymus vulgaris”. Thyme is a perennial plant that comes from the mint family “Lamiaceae”. Its flowers vary from white to pinkish. Its leaves are small and oblong and it usually grows as a small shrub reaching an average height of six inches.

Thyme was used in ancient Egypt as a preservative for dead bodies. It was also used in ancient Greece as incense for their temples and placed on coffins during funerals. The popularity of thyme across Europe is attributed to the Romans who used it as a flavoring for cheese and liquor. They also used it as purification for their houses. In the medieval ages, the Europeans put the herb under their pillows as protection against nightmares. The medieval age was also the period of the Black Death and the European women gave it to their knights and warriors as it was believed to bring courage to the bearer.

Over the years, thyme has been used for several medicinal and culinary purposes. Its native habitat is in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean where it grows on wild rocky highlands. Its different forms such as thyme essential oil, cough syrup, infused honey, infused vinegar, tincture and culinary spice have been used to help poor digestion, burns, whooping cough, wounds, diarrhea, menstrual cramps and urinary tract infections. More than any other herb, thyme retains its flavour even when it has been dried.
