Product Description

 Common thyme is in Latin named Thymus vulgaris. Thymus Capitalus is specie that grows in Greece. In western Mediterranean countries, common thyme is a form of cultivated wild thyme. Pliny recommended thyme as an antidote for snake bites, "sea creatures" bites and headaches.

Parts used therapeutically are leaves and flower tops, collected from June to August, on dry, sunny days. Leaves are removed from dried branches.

Thyme contains more than 1% volatile oil (which contains thymol, carvacrol, cymol, linalool and vorneol), bitter principles, tannin, flavonoids and terpenoids. It acts as an antiflatulent, expectorant, styptic and vermifuge agent.

Thyme is a helpful antiflatulent in cases of dyspepsia or slow digestion because of its volatile oil. This oil is also used as a potent antiseptic agent. It can be used externally as a lotion for infected wounds and internally for respiratory and digestive infections.

Thyme can be used in gargles for laryngitis and tonsillitis as it soothes sore throat and irritating cough. It acts as a fine expectorant against cough reducing spasms. It can also be used for bronchitis, pertussis and asthma. Because of its mild styptic action, it can be effective against child diarrhoea and night urination.

Remedy is prepared as an infusion. Pour a cup of boiling water onto two teaspoonfuls of dried herb and leave it infuse for 10 minutes. Drink three times a day.

Avoid use of thyme and thymol in case of pregnancy because thyme stimulates the uterus. Thymol should be well diluted because it can irritate the mucous membranes.
