Thyme, that’s nice

It’s autumn again, the time to catch a cold! We stock up on cough syrup, nose drops and dampo again. And fortunately Mother Nature has also produced a very good remedy: THYME Thyme is a semi-shrub of 30 to 40 cm high, everything is small but nice about this herb. The leaves are arranged crosswise on the stem and the flowers bloom from May to August in the leaf axils of the upper leaves. They are white to light purple in color. Thyme has nutty fruits. You can find thyme in the south of France along the west coast, in the south of Italy and in Greece. The plant mainly grows among the shrubs on the rock slopes. You used to find thyme a lot in monastery gardens, because it is a wonderful herb for cooking!
Thyme smells wonderful, the flower stems mainly contain essential oil. If you run your hand along the stem , your whole hand will smell spicy. When you burn some of the leaves, your house will smell fresh and like nature. The scent is not overpowering but does linger for a nice long time.
Thyme is well-known in the kitchen, in fact every dish tastes good if you add thyme to it. But fresh leaves in the lettuce especially increase the taste of the salad. Thyme has an antispasmodic and antiseptic effect on digestive problems and is therefore often used in the kitchen.
However, thyme is best known because it is used in, for example, cough syrup (thyme syrup). The herb dissolves mucus, relieves coughing and is anti-septic. It helps to breathe easier in asthma or emphysema but does not cure these conditions. You can drink an infusion of the crumbled herb three times a day, a teaspoon in a cup of water. There is an alcohol extract as a dermatological agent that you can use for skin rashes, athlete’s foot, abrasions, etc. And in your bath, the herb helps
to strengthen and refresh tired muscles after a day of sport, play and effort .


Thyme is a versatile herb that smells nice, enhances the taste and strengthens and relaxes. A good color to further relax and enjoy the sun, water and herbs could be blue. There are so many shades of blue that there is definitely one for your bathroom. If you have a small bathroom, stick to a light shade of blue; that gives space and light.
With a large bathroom you can of course experiment, the narrow wall dark , the long wall light gives a longer effect. Conversely, long becomes dark, narrow becomes light, giving a square effect. But be careful, a blue bathroom can also feel like an aquarium!!!


The best stone for the effect of thyme is aquamarine. The name comes from Latin and means water and sea. Many people with respiratory conditions go to the sea for treatment. The color of aquamarine is almost colorless to bright blue, and from crystal clear to almost opaque. The stone works well against throat and mouth conditions such as toothache, sore throat, bronchitis, shortness of breath and sinusitis. With an aquamarine on your wrist or neck you feel confident and self-confident, no wonder because this stone has a positive effect, you feel it and you see it!
With this combination of fragrant, versatile herb, color and stone we will get through autumn well.
