Most of us use Thyme in the kitchen with our cooking (if not, you are missing out. It is one of my favorites! SO good), but very few people know that thyme has medicinal attributes as well. The essential oils in Thyme are one of nature's most potent antimicrobial and antispasmodic substances. Thus, it is good to help cure respiratory tract infections from colds, flus, coughs, tonsillitis, and laryngitis.
Herbal Infused Tea Recipe:
