History

Thyme has been used as both food and medicine in ancient times. It was believed in Ancient Greek that Thymes is a source of power and courage (Thumus). The word “Thumus” in Greek means “courage”. It is told that Thymes was widespread in Europe thanks to Romans who used it for cleaning their rooms and aromatizing their drinks. They also believed that adding Thymes to water gives energy to it. This plant has been used as food and disinfectant for centuries.
