ETYMOLOGY / ANTIQUITY

Greek θύμον "thyme", from the sense ‘’plant having a strong smell’’. And it was primarily due to its aromatic properties only, that it was widely used in ancient Greece. It was burned as incense in sacred temples. Even ancient Egyptians made use of thyme for embalming. It was also used as a symbol of courage in the ancient times.

USAGE

Use 2 teaspoons of dried thyme per cup of boiling water, steep for 10 minutes, and drink three times a day.

STORAGE

Store the dried type of the herb in a cool, dark place for a maximum of six months so that its complete flavor is retained.
