 Herbal Secrets




Thyme is a popular, easy to grow and refreshing scented herb used since ancient times both in cooking and in herbal medicine, as an expectorant and antiseptic. Thyme has a traditional association with bravery and courage.


Thyme is an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent, when used externally as a wash, especially when combined with vinegar. It is helpful for respiratory conditions such as colds, flu or asthma, when used as a cough syrup with honey, and promotes thinning and expectorating thick phlegm and helps ease the spasms of coughing


Avoid excessive use in pregnancy. Generally, no harmful effects reported, unless individual sensitivities occur.


Be sure of the identity of any plant before you use it. If a preparation makes you sick or gives you a rash, don't use it, and throw it away! If your condition does not improve, see your doctor. Be sure to let your physician know  EVERYTHING that you are taking!
