Do you have Thyme?

Yes I said thyme as in the green herb that we often cook with.

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.

Bottoms up!
Enjoy your time drinking thyme!

  1. Hola,

    Gracias por este mensaje. This is really great – I am glad that you finally will have a place to put all the great things you have shared with me and many others over the years. You really inspire me, I don’t know how you do it all. Thyme, who would of thought, so we just boil it?

  2. Thanks Mariana for your willingness to arm us with the truth!
    I can tell you first hand that I’ve been drinking Thyme tea and I can attest to the benefits. I drink thyme tea 3 times a day including after dinner because I lose my desire to eat sweets and in turn lose those extra pounds!

    Thanks!
