Thyme is one of the earliest medicinal plants in Western herbal medicine. Thyme was used as long ago as 2000 BC in ancient Sumeria. During World War I, Thyme was used as a disinfectant in hospitals. Throughout history, in many parts of the world, Thyme has been associated with courage, strong morale and clear thinking.
The name “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.
