Yes I said thyme as in the green herb that we often use to make savory dishes.
Thyme unlike what many people are aware of makes a great tea to boost immunity, rid the body of infectious bacteria/viruses and has great astringent properties.
Thyme is an aromatic herb. It boasts antiseptic properties and is used as a circulatory stimulant when taken hot. It’s also a bronchial antispasmodic and expectorant.
Thyme is taken for fevers, colds and flu, coughs, bronchitis, asthma, bronchial spasms, and expectoration of upper respiratory catarrh. It’s also used as As a gargle for sore throat, tonsillitis and laryngitis and to relieve colic, flatulence and diarrhea.
It’s best to use Organic Thyme, you can purchase store-bought fresh Thyme or the dried leaves. If you use the dried leaves make sure to store in a cool dry and dark place. To make the tea just boil some distilled water and pour it over about a teaspoon of dried Thyme. Let it steep for about 15 minutes strain off the herbs then add the juice of one lemon and sweeten with raw honey. If you want you can also add some dried ginger root or the juice of fresh ginger root.
Enjoy your time drinking thyme!
