While spices like garlic and turmeric may be better known for their medicinal effects, they certainly aren’t the only flavoring agents with healing properties.

If fact, most of the herbs used in cooking today were actually included in everyday foods because of their health benefits.

And thyme, which is often used but hardly ever acknowledged, is no exception.

Benefits Of Thyme

This popular culinary herb is typically eaten to treat bronchitis, whooping cough, sore throat, colic, parasitic worm infections, and skin disorders.

Additionally, it has the ability to treat most common stomach problems, like upset stomach, stomach pain (gastritis), diarrhea and parasitic worm infections. In children, the herb can be used to manage bedwetting and dyspraxia, a movement disorder in children.

Thyme can also be applied topically to treat hoarseness, swollen tonsils, sore mouth, and bad breath. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties are even used to fight oral infections, baldness and ear pain (1).

Other benefits include (2,3):

  • Increased urine flow
  • Appetite stimulant
  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Improves acne
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Suppresses cough
  • Boosts immunity
  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Boosts mood
  • Treats breast and colon cancer

Thyme also contains ursolic acid, which increases skeletal muscle mass and brown fat while decreasing diet-induced obesity, improving glucose intolerance and reserving fatty liver disease (4,5).

Another powerful compound, rosmarinic acid, has anti-inflammatory benefits which can reduce symptoms of arthritis and inflammatory diseases like lupus (6,7).

When taken regularly, thyme tea can help deal with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, hashimoto’s thyroiditis, vertigo, tinnitus, and multiple sclerosis.

How To Make Thyme Tea

If you suffer from chronic inflammation or an inflammatory condition, drink a cup of this tea first thing in the morning!

You’ll need:

  • A handful of dried of fresh Thyme
  • Boiled Water
  • A Teapot & mug


  1. Measure out 1 teaspoon of herbs per cup of water you’ll be using.
  2. Pour water heated between 208 and 212° Fahrenheit.
  3. Cover and infuse for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove tea strainer and enjoy.
