What is Thyme and how do i use it?

Thyme is an herb. The flowers, leaves, and oil are used as medicine. Thyme is sometimes used in combination with other herbs to heal the above mentioned ailments and many many more.

Thyme is a robust, shrubby herb with trailing green-gray leaves and an intense aroma and flavor. This herb is native to the western Mediterranean, and it extends to drier, sunnier climates around Western Asia and southern Europe. 


How to Prepare Thyme Tea

To enjoy the health benefits of thyme, you can easily prepare it as a tea. You can choose to make your tea using fresh leaves or ground thyme powder. You can also use dried thyme, but remember to strain the leaves from your drink to avoid unpleasant textures. 


For fresh leaves, add several sprigs of thyme to a cup of boiling water and let steep for 5 to 8 minutes. If any leaves fall off the sprigs and into your water, you can strain them before drinking.

For powdered thyme, add about 1 teaspoon of the powder to a cup of boiling water and stir to combine. Ground thyme is similar in texture to matcha green tea powder, and you may need to stir several times to ensure thorough mixing. 

Thyme is available in fresh form, dried form, tea form, tincture form and supplementary form. That makes it a must for everyone to have at home.
