History

Thyme’s reputation as a healer and protector dates back to the Roman era, where it was told that eating thyme before or during a meal provided an antidote to poison. In addition, it was said that a bath in warm water dosed with thyme could stop the effects of poison after it was inadvertently consumed. Thyme was also associated with courage, bravery and strength. Roman soldiers traded thyme as a sign of respect and nobility. Greeks and Romans burned bundles of thyme to purify their temples and homes, as well as to evoke a spirit of courage in those who inhaled it. Soldiers often also pinned thyme on their clothing or armor to ward off bad luck. Thyme has been used as a medicinal agent as an antiseptic, and today thyme is used in mouthwashes, hand sanitizers, and acne medications.
