Thyme, Organically Grown: Morocco (Thymus vulgaris)
In many ancient cultures, Thyme was use as a general tonic. It was given to warriors to instill virtues of strength, energy, and courage. The Egyptians used it for embalming and the Europeans believed the plant attracted fairies. Today, Thyme is used in cooking, mouthwashes, perfumes, ointments, elixirs and other products. There are several different types of Thyme with their own unique chemical makeup. The vulgaris species is highest in phenols and therefore the most therapeutic Thyme to use for killing bacteria and viruses. Thyme is actually a member of the mint family and the essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves.
