Thymus vulgaris is a flowering plant of the family Lamiaceae commonly known as Thyme, native to Southern Europe. The plant is indigenous to the Mediterranean and neighboring countries, Northern Africa, and parts of Asia.

People have used thyme for many centuries as a flavoring agent, culinary herb, and herbal medicine. The plant is useful as infusion to treat cough, diabetes, and cold and chest infections. It is also soothing for sore throat, as thyme is has antiseptic, antibiotic, and antifungal properties.

Thyme has a green color, an aromatic aroma and a leafy, slightly bitter flavor.

Medicinally, Thyme is used for respiratory infections in the form of a tincture, tisane, syrup or by steam inhalation. A tea made by infusing the herb in water can be used for cough and bronchitis. Because it is antiseptic, thyme boiled in water and cooled is very effective against inflammation of the throat when gargled 3 times a day. The inflammation will normally disappear in 2 – 5 days.
