what else you should know

thyme leaf

Thyme, also referred to as Garden Thyme and English Thyme, is a compact, spreading herb in the mint family that is native to southern Europe and the western Mediterranean region. It is an herb of antiquity, with a history of use that dates to ancient Greece and Rome where it was used to flavor wines, embalm the dead and ward off nightmares.

Thyme remains a popular culinary herb today. It is an essential component of bouquet garni and herbes de Provence. Combined with sage, rosemary, garlic and mustard, thyme adds warmth to poultry seasoning blends.

Because thyme contains compounds that exhibit antibacterial activity, the herb is used to make natural tooth powders and mouthwash as well as natural household cleaners. Infused in oil, powdered thyme is also useful in salves and ointments for troubled skin.
