Thyme is an evergreen herb with many culinary, medicinal and ornamental uses. It has an ancient history, especially in Egypt and Greece, where it was used in baths, as incense and a symbol of courage. Thyme grows best in a hot, sunny location, and is generally planted in the spring after which it grows as a perennial. The leaves of thyme are used both fresh and dried as seasoning. The oil of thyme is commonly used as an antiseptic, in mouthwash, and to cure coughs and bronchitis.
