Uses for Thyme Tea
Thyme Tea is most often used to aid in relief from the common cold, brochitis, and coughs. Thyme has the ability to dry mucous membranes and relax spasms of the bronchial passage to provide relief from coughing. Thyme is also known to fight infections and has antiseptic properties.
As a result, Thyme Tea can be effective for the following chronic conditions:
- Thyme Tea treats Bronchitis
- Thyme Tea treats Emphysema
- Thyme Tea treats Asthma
- Thyme Tea treats Hay Fever
As a digestive aid, thyme is known to combat such parasites as hookworms and tapeworms. For digestive health, mix thyme with equal amounts of red clover, sage and rosemary. If you are treating naseau, add a little sliced ginger root to the tea.
Thyme has also been effective in reducing pain associated with rheumatic arthritis and arthritic pain in joints.
The most common variety to use for tea is Thymus Vulgaris, however Thymus Serpyllum contains a sedative property.
For generations, hot Thyme tea was taken to induce menstruation when it was repressed (which is why this herb should not be used during pregnancy).
Also, it is has been proven effective in increasing perspiration which is why it has been recommended to bring down a fever and help sweat out a cold.
Externally, a strong tea tonic made of Thyme steeped in boiled water (double or triple the recipe below) can be used as an antiseptic on external cuts and wounds. This Thyme Tonic also makes a good gargle or rinse for chronic gum problems. Thyme is used frequently as an ingredient in commercial toothpastes and mouthwashes.
