I found this informative little booklet all about the herb Thyme. It’s from Natural Herbal Living Mamma.
“Thyme is a well-known culinary herb that has been used in both food and medicine for thousands of years. It has been said that when eaten, thyme can help prevent or cure the effects of poison; the smoke is used to invigorate and strengt hen the spirit for battle; a sprig is used as a sign of respect and courage; and teas and poultices were used as remedies for The Plague. There is no way, even in an entire book, that we could cover all the ways over the years that thyme has been used in f ood and medicine. Out of my top 20 herbals, only three didn’t mention thyme in their materia medica. It is thyme to dig deep into this traditional herb, and learn more about its uses.“
