The health benefits of herbs are amazing, including the herb thyme. Thyme is an herb that I tried out on one of our children when they had a cold. I wanted to see if it really made much of a difference with relieving his symptoms, and sure enough it did.
I made an herbal tea with some thyme I had saved. It was simple. I just took the dried leaves put them in a mug, poured in boiling water, and steeped for about 5 minutes. Of all the remedies, natural of course, that I had tried on him, he said this one was the most effective.
When adding it to tea add some raw honey for a sweeter flavor since thyme can sometimes be quite strong. Raw honey of course gives you an even more effective health remedy with its immune boosting, antibacterial, and easing sore throat abilities as well.
