Thyme has been used for medical purposes for ages. The Egyptians and Etruscans used thyme in combination with other herbs for embalming their dead. The ancient Greeks used it to flavor food and as incense in their temples. The Romans appreciated this plant not only as a culinary herb but also for its medicinal properties.
Because of the disinfecting effect of thyme, they made soap and toilet water from it. They brought the spice to our region where it can be found in monastery gardens. Medieval noblewomen sewed sprigs of thyme on the clothing of knights to give them strength and power in combat. Among the common people, it was used as a remedy for bad odors and to fight diseases. Thyme and garlic were the "antibiotic" of the lower class.
Thyme is known as an expectorant, but also has a powerful antibacterial and antifungal activity. During the First World War thyme oil was used as a disinfectant.
Thyme oil stimulates mental concentration and has a relaxing and slightly numbing effect so it can be used well to treat insomnia and tensions. Thyme makes the (mental) sun shine again. Evaporate in living or sleeping area.
