Thymus vulgaris L. / timó / thyme / thyme.

Thyme is one of the essentials in our kitchen, both as an infusion remedy (for coughs and flu-like processes) and to accompany roasts of meat, potatoes, etc.

Thyme is one of the most valued aromatic herbs Description

An aromatic herb in the form of a bush, between 10 and 30 cm high, with woody stems and populated with numerous narrow, lanceolate leaves, with tiny glandular formations. The flowers are pink and very small.

Quite common in dry meadows, rocky areas and low mountains and moors, it is hardy and likes warm climates. It is common in Mediterranean Europe.

Flowering takes place from March, then the flowering tops are harvested, which are then dried in the shade.


Thyme was already known and highly valued in ancient Egypt, where it was used in the embalming of corpses. It is now known that its ability to limit putrefaction and prevent the proliferation of bacteria is due to the presence of thymol and carvacrol, two powerful antiseptics.

Properties and indications

Thyme is rich in essential oil with thymol, carvacrol, flavonoids, phenolic acids and tannins. And its use as an expectorant in cough associated with colds and flu processes has been recognized by the European Agency of the Medicament (EMA).

As an antiseptic

Thyme is able to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which increases its antimicrobial action. It is therefore indicated in the treatment of infectious diseases, especially those of bacterial origin and that affect the respiratory, digestive and genitourinary organs.

Flu-like processes, cough and colds

Thyme is expectorant, antitussive and balsamic, which together with its antiseptic capacity makes it a good remedy to treat or relieve pharyngitis, bronchial colds and bronchitis, asthma and spasmodic cough. Depending on the case, it can be used both as an infusion and as a vapor or inhalation.

Skin infections

It is also very suitable for treating certain minor skin conditions, such as infected wounds, sores, ulcers, abscesses and boils, etc. In this case, the most appropriate form of application would be in the form of compresses or gentle washing of the affected areas.

The essential oil, thymol, can be toxic, so if you opt for this format, it is advisable to do so under medical supervision.
