    For thousands of years, Thyme has been a superstar of the herb garden. As an antidote for poison, a plague preventative, a symbol of bravery in battle and a stalwart companion to the grave, Thyme has a far more exciting past than you’d think if you were walking past it in the supermarket today.

    Roman soldiers were said to have bathed in Thyme or pinned it to their garments before heading into battle to give them courage. In ancient Egypt, Thyme was used as an embalming aid to help the dead make their passage into the next life or the afterlife. Both cultures also burned thyme as a purification aid in both sick houses and temples.

    Our Thyme is grown in the Balkans using traditional methods. The farmers we work with are a part of the local community. There is a biodiversity plan for all the farms we work with to focus on soil health and water management.

    Fun Fact: A patch of wild Thyme in the woods was a sign that fairies had danced the night away on that spot. It was said that fairies slept in patches of Thyme, so gardeners would plant a patch of Thyme in their garden to serve as a resting place for ethereal visitors.

  • Directions

    For making Thyme Tea, use 2 teaspoons with 2 cup of hot water. Steep for 15 minutes. Add raw honey and lemon juice as desired for taste.

  • Uses

    - Thyme is most commonly paired with Rosemary and Sage, but it actually goes well with a variety of other spices, like Garlic, Oregano, Onion powder, and Cayenne Pepper.
    - Dried Thyme added right at the end of cooking to soups like lentil and split pea brings an aroma to the dish that is hard to miss. Just add the herb and immediately take the soup off the heat. Keep the dish covered, and when you are ready to serve, the soup will smell heavenly.
    - When baking bread, add a couple pinches of dried Thyme to the flour to make a herb bread that tastes great with butter.
    - Pasta and herbs are a great combination. When you have made your favorite pasta sauce, add a pinch of dried leaves to enhance your dish.
    - The use of Thyme and Rosemary for soft, silky hair goes back centuries. This herbal rinse keeps hair feeling great, and promotes a clean, healthy scalp.
    - Thyme’s natural antiseptic properties make it great for cleaning skin. Try this four-ingredient cleanser. Combine 1/4 cup pure honey, 1/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon chopped Thyme and 2 tablespoons liquid castile soap, and pour into a clean container.
