Thyme herb, known for its Latin name, Thymus Vulgaris is a perennial in the mint family of plants. Thyme is a fragrant aromatic herb and is just the right herb for a wide array of uses, including but not limited to, potpourri, herbal teas to aid in coughs and sore throat, seasoning for cooking meat, chicken, or vegetable soups, and even as mood-enhancing aromatherapy.
Thyme leaves are an excellent source of minerals and nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin A, Fiber, Iron, Calcium, and Magnesium. Thyme leaves are best used in food when rubbed together into stews, casseroles, soups, vegetables, and pasta.
Thyme leaves have been used for millennia for their healing, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiseptic properties. This makes it a natural ingredient to be used for throat infections and coughs to remedy upper respiratory problems like bronchitis.
To make thyme herbal tea, add a small teaspoon of dried leaves into boiling water, allow to boil briefly, and then strain into a mug. Add a spoonful of honey to help with coughs and sore throat. Overheating and over-steeping the herb will result in a bitter taste. To add thyme to your cooking, it’s best to rub the dried thyme together to release its fragrant aroma into your recipes.
