Herb of the Day: Thyme

Herb Of The Day Thyme FB

It’s about time we talked about thyme (sorry, couldn’t resist!)  This flowery herb is perhaps best known for its use during the plague when thyme was often burned along with other herbs in hopes of keeping the disease away.  It was commonly used in ancient Greece as an incense and the scent is still very popular today.  Thyme is used by cooks, herbalists, aromatherapists and still burned for fragrance.

Traditional Uses

  • Digestion
  • Flatulence
  • Cough
  • Whooping Cough
  • Tonic
  • Asthma
  • Fungus
  • Menstrual Cramps
  • Immune support

The Plant

Thymus Vulgaris is an easy plant to grow in the garden or even in pots in the home kitchen.  It can grow up to 12 inches tall but usually stays around 4-8 inches.  Bees will flock to the beautiful flowers which may be white, pink or pale purple.  Thyme is a resilient plant which grows best in zones 5-8 but can be planted indoors in most climates.  Provide thyme with plenty of sun, normal amounts of water and keep trimmed to maintain the best growth.  Harvest as needed in the summer.  Thyme dries well and can be used fresh or dried.

TriLight  Health and Thyme

We use thyme in many different products.  Thyme can be found in Worm Out, Echinacea and Thyme, ASMA, BactaMune, NR Glow, Cold & Flu Daytime Kit, and the Immune System Builder Kit.  

Kate says this about Worm Out– “I am very happy with this product so far. It is easy to give my 4 year old, much easier than other dewormers we have used in the past. His bowl has seemed much healthier since using this product and so I am very thankful for this product.”

Ericka had great success with Echinacea and Thyme– “I started my son on this formula when he had just developed some cold symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, sneezing). After about 12 hours, he noticed that he was feeling better. In only a two days, his cold was almost gone. Very pleased!”

Jessica’s family loves ASMA “My four year old has always had weak lungs, any time he’d catch a cold we’d have to fight it going into the lungs. Last spring he had a bout of croup and while he recovered, he still had coughing fits at night for months afterward. I also started to notice he’d cough after running around or swimming. I knew I had to find something to build up his lungs or he was going to develop asthma. I decided to try ASMA and within a week of using ASMA three times a day, he no longer had a night time cough. He also stopped coughing after running and swimming!”

Lina uses BactaMune “I’ve had the chance to use BactaMune with two of my kids so far in the last few weeks when they were starting to get sick. They hardly got sick before they got better! It’s always nice to feel like you CAN do something to help them, and I love having this safer option on-hand.”

NR Glow helps Lenay’s family “I use this whenever my son starts to get a little dry skin. Within a couple days it is gone. I also use this when he has been exposed to sickness. Whenever I have used it, he has not become sick. I am not sure why, but when he is on it, he also seems to be more balanced mentally and emotionally. And of course, he loves the taste!”
