Thyme is a lovely herb to have in your home. Grow it in your herb garden….or you can even use the dried leaf form found in the supermarkets – organic is better if possible to avoid unwanted pesticides.
It’s a great antibacterial, antifungal & expectorant & antispasmodic – making it perfect for that annoying cough or common cold, shifting catarrh & phlegm. You can simply make your own infusion by adding a couple of teaspoons of dried leaves to a cup of just boiled water & let it steep for 10mins before drinking.
Sip 3-4 times a day for a cough or cold, or use the cooled version as a gargle for tonsillitis or laryngitis. Add a dash of Manuka honey that has had garlic steeping in it for that extra antimicrobial hit!!!
Isn’t it time you had some Thyme in your kitchen?!
