Thyme is mainly used in cooking, but it can also be used as an infusion due to its therapeutic properties. In ancient Greece the elderly would drink thyme tea to invigorate their mental abilities, whereas Cretans would rub it on their gums to treat gingivitis. Today research has proved that gurgles with thyme infusion are recommended to treat gingivitis, sore throats and acute coughs. Thyme infusions are soothing, aid digestion, comfort the stomach and relieve anxiety, while they strengthen the immune system. Thyme baths are also recommended to those suffering from rheumatisms.
