Thyme is a Mediterranean herb in the mint family that belongs in every kitchen cupboard and home apothecary. The dried leaf adds a woody, slightly peppery flavor with a lemony finish to marinades, dressings, roasted meats and vegetables and tea blends. Thyme is as versatile in its use in cosmetics and wellness as it is in the kitchen. Organic certification ensures that all the goodness of thyme goes into your preparations and synthetic chemicals and pesticides do not.
