Thyme Interesting Notes:

"Garden thyme is a universal herb that is so widely used for culinary purposes that it prompted the writers of the Grass Roots Herb Society Newsletter to offer the following to cooks - "When in doubt, use thyme." Indeed it is a favorite of cooks and used with all types of meat and vegetables. The leaves and flowering stems are used in sachets, and the dried flowers have been used to preserve linens from insects. Thyme is also reported to be a benefit as a companion planting to eggplant, potatoes, and tomatoes. Bees are attracted in great numbers to thyme when it is in flower. Gardeners who do not wish to welcome this insect should cut the blossoms off before they begin to open. The oil Thymol is used in pharmaceuticals." -Still, Steven "Manual of Herbaceous Ornamental Plants"

Thyme symbolized courage and energy to ancient Greek athletes, who would rub its oil on their arms before a competition. The herb's long medicinal history, including use in Egyptian embalming, is borne out in its proven antiseptic properties. As recently as World War I, it was used to clean wounds.
