Thyme is a useful tonic for infections, whether in the throat, chest area, or feet (especially fungal ones such as athlete’s foot). Thyme is useful for bronchitis, whooping cough, and pleurisy. There are those who claim Thyme will kill lice. Perhaps a strong tea, applied frequently enough, would do this but I think that I would probably rely on the essential oil as my first choice. I think it likely that the many wonderful healing properties of Thyme are because of its wide range of nutrients. Thyme contains potassium, iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, and selenium. Thyme is also a rich source of vitamins A, K, E, C, the B complex vitamins, and folic acid. The active ingredient in Thyme, thymol, has been found scientifically to have antiseptic and antifungal properties.
