During World War I, Thyme was used as a disinfectant in hospitals. The word “thyme” has two possible Greek origins. The first, “thymon” means to fumigate, coming from the herb being used as incense. The second is” thumon” meaning courage; Thyme was often connected with bravery.
About the Plant

The oval leaves are arranged in opposite pairs, and the flowers are in dense terminal heads, with the upper lip three-lobed, yellow, white or purple. Thyme is one of the earliest medicinal plants in Western herbal medicine. Thyme essential oils are extracted by steam or water distillation from the fresh or partially dried leaves and flower tops. Thymol is the active compound responsible for this aromatic herb’s deep healing power. Thyme is also widely used as a flavoring and preservative.
