Organic Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris)
Thyme is an aromatic evergreen herb, with many traditional and culinary uses. The most common variety is Thymus vulgaris. It is a member of the mint family (Lamiaceae), and a relative of oregano. Thyme is commonly grown all over the world but originated in the Mediterranean. This organic dried thyme has a herbaceous, savoury flavour and a pungent aroma.
How to use
Thyme is a traditional ingredient in many cuisines and can be used in a bouquet sachet. Add thyme to use in soups, stews and sauces. Thyme is also a beautiful accompaniment for baked fish or fried chicken. It imparts a delicious taste to roasted pumpkin, carrots and potatoes. Mix thyme with a little parmesan cheese and crushed garlic, before tossing through cooked potatoes or sprinkling over focaccia. Dried thyme can also be steeped in boiled water to make a traditional herbal beverage.
Take thyme internally to relieve chest infections, dry coughs, whooping cough, bronchitis, asthma and laryngitis. It is also useful for the treatment of indigestion, gastritis and diarrhoea.
Externally, thyme is used for fungal infections, infected skin conditions, for thrush of the mouth it can be used as a mouthwash and as a douche for vaginal thrush. Gargle with thyme tea for tonsillitis.

This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
