Everything from flavoring sauces, meat rubs, salad dressings, and herb sachets, its’ uses in the culinary and medicinal worlds have been employed throughout cultures and ages for its effectiveness.  Thyme has antiseptic qualities, and has been used for colds, camps, bronchial problems, intestinal problems, skin inflammation and sores, as well as an expectorant.
