Thyme- ( Thymys Vulgaris )

Thyme- ( Thymys Vulgaris )

Thyme is a small herb that is found in most kitchen gardens. These tiny leaves are often used as seasoning for meat, fish and vegetable dishes. The ancient Egyptians used thyme to embalm the dead. The Romans get credit for spreading this useful little herb throughout Europe, since they used it to purify their rooms and to flavor cheese and liqueurs. In the Middle Ages, a sprig of herb was placed beneath the pillow to ward off bad dreams. It was often included in the gifts ladies gave to knights as it was thought to bring courage. It was also used in funerals to help the departed gain passage to the next life.
