   Introduction

Ancient Egyptians used thyme for embalming. The ancient Greeks used it in their baths and burnt it as incense in their temples, believing it was a source of courage. The spread of thyme throughout Europe was thought to be due to the Romans, as they used it to purify their rooms and to "give an aromatic flavor to cheese and liqueurs". In the European Middle Ages, the herb was placed beneath pillows to aid sleep and ward off nightmares. In this period, women would also often give knights and warriors gifts that included thyme leaves, as it was believed to bring courage to the bearer. Thyme has been used in cooking, medicinally as an antiseptic and for coughs and chest conditions, in pot pourri and as an aromatic strewing herb. Parkinson in Theatrum Botanicum in 1640, described Guilded or Embroidered Thyme, with green leaves, striped or edged with gold.


   Description

 

Thyme is a perennial shrub of the Mint familyy, with more than a hundred species to its name. Two popular species are Garden Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) and Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum). Whereas Garden Thyme has erect stems, Wild Thyme has snake-like stems that crawl close to the ground. Both varieties have thin grayish-green leaves that roll inward from the square, woody stem. Thyme has tubular flowers that grow in clusters and bloom in mid-summer, with various colors depending on the specie. Thyme essential oil is extracted from its flowering tops through water or steam distillation.
