Description

For thousands of years, Thyme has been a superstar of the herb garden. As an antidote for poison, a plague preventative, a symbol of bravery in battle and a stalwart companion to the grave, Thyme has a far more exciting past than you’d think if you were walking past it in the supermarket today.

Roman soldiers were said to have bathed in Thyme or pinned it to their garments before heading into battle to give them courage. In ancient Egypt, Thyme was used as an embalming aid to help the dead make their passage into the next life or the afterlife. Both cultures also burned thyme as a purification aid in both sick houses and temples.

This  Thyme is grown in the Balkans using traditional methods, with farmers and farms who are a part of the local community. There is a biodiversity plan for all the farms we work with to focus on soil health and water management.

Fun Fact: A patch of wild Thyme in the woods was a sign that fairies had danced the night away on that spot. It was said that fairies slept in patches of Thyme, so gardeners would plant a patch of Thyme in their garden to serve as a resting place for ethereal visitor
