Being so common as a culinary herb, Thyme is often overlooked as a traditional ingredient for many minor complaints. Recognising this plant's potential Indigo Herbs brings you this lovely aromatic herb in the form of Thyme Leaf Tea, Thyme Tincture, Thyme Essential Oil and Thyme capsules to enjoy all its beneficial qualities. Not only can this ingredient be considered traditionally medicinal, it also has many interesting esoteric and magical uses that were prevalent throughout ancient Europe.

Thyme was used by the Egyptians as part of the embalming procedure to mummify the dead whereas the ancient Greeks used to burn the herb to purify their temples. This directly links with the meaning of the common name in Greek was ‘thymos’, meaning smoke or spirit. Among other attributes given to Thyme was the property of giving someone courage which was also a given character of the plant in medieval England. During the medieval period maidens would present scarves embroidered with the pattern of Thyme to their favourite knights so they wouldn't be over come with fear in battle. It was the Romans though who popularised this herb throughout Europe for its culinary uses. Other interesting esoteric characteristics include putting a sprig of Thyme under ones pillow to ward off nightmares and putting the herb in a coffin to confer the spirit swiftly to the next life.

Being a very small plant Thyme is well suited to being a ground cover herb with species being very low and spreading. Generally they grow to a height of around 8 inches in height and have small white to purple flowers. It is extremely aromatic with many of the species being bred for different tastes. These can especially be seen in the case of Lemon Thyme.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Pour a cup of boiling water onto 2 tsp of the dried herb and let infuse for l0 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.

Serving:

2g per one cup of boiling water, 3 times a day 

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Thyme Leaf Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under strict supervision and the soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

Avoid in the conditions of epilepsy, pregnancy and high blood pressure.

The product still hasn't arrived and it was to form part of a Christmas present. Goods from other companies i ordered later than this product all arrived before Christmas. Not happy. Especially as you have to wait 14 days to let them know a product hasn't arrived. Have only given a star to be able to write this review otherwise I would not give any star.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Thyme Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning the Thyme used to make this tincture undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Thyme Essential Oil is extracted using the "steam distillation" method. In this process the botanical material is placed in a still and steam is forced over the material. The hot steam helps to release the aromatic molecules from the plant material since the steam forces open the pockets in which the oils are kept. Molecules of the volatile oils then escape and evaporate into the steam. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled - just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. The steam now containing the essential oil is passed through a cooling system to condense the steam which forms a liquid. The essential oil is then separated from the water and bottled, resulting in 100% pure essential oil.

Avoid in the conditions of epilepsy, pregnancy and high blood pressure.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.

Thyme bears a lengthy history of use and is still enthusiastically enjoyed by many people today. A cup of organic thyme offers a refreshing aroma and a stimulating flavour that has made it popular among herbal drinkers everywhere. Yet another member of the diverse mint family, thyme is a uniquely fragrant herb which has been commonly used for a variety of culinary purposes. Historically, however, thyme’s use dates back much farther than its first appearance in the kitchen. Ancient Egyptians employed thyme for embalming, and in Medieval Europe, placing thyme under your pillow was thought to ward off evil. Today, when not added to a spice collection, thyme leaves are used to provide an aromatic and flavourful cup of thyme.
