Join Geraldine & Christine from the Herbal Extract Company as we discuss – Thyme, which is traditionally part of every herb garden, even the most modest. It has acquired such a wide medicinal and culinary reputation that it is a mainstay of the modern herbal materia medica.
Thyme has a long history as a treatment for coughs. It was used medicinally by Hippocrates (“the father of medicine”) over 4,000 years ago, and later by the first-century Greek physician Dioscorides, as a treatment for respiratory disorders. It continues to be one of the most recommended herbs in Europe for this indication.
