It was already back at the year 3000 BC that thyme was mentioned in anceint egyptian writings.

The Egyptians grew the spice and believed that the thyme would persecute and keep away the evil spirits.

While we are not sure whether thyme actually does this, we do know that thyme provides wonderful health benefits to the body.

Here are seven reasons why you must always have a thyme at home.

1. Lowers blood pressure

It has been shown that the thyme that is grown in Pakistan and Afghanistan reduces heart rate in rats with high blood pressure. It is mentioned in this study.

Thyme acts as an antispasmodic ingredient and can soothe abdominal and intestinal cramps. The spice also reduces gases and promotes better digestion.

3. Eliminates parasites

Thyme oil, which is produced from thyme leaves, works great against a wide variety of bacteria.

In fact, thyme is effective as a disinfectant like bleach, only non-toxic, according to a paper published by the Environmental Protection Agency.

If you suffer from candida, try drinking a mixture of thyme, sage and echinacea (crimson hedgehog). Their combination helps get rid of the fungus.

4. Helps against cough

To this day, thyme is used for cough syrup (for example, tummy syrup). So if you have a cough, you may want to drink thyme tea.

Drink 1-3 cups a day (1 teaspoon thyme and 2 cups boiling water, let the tea cool for 10 minutes, stir and enjoy), for eight weeks and be amazed by the results.

In addition, thyme is an excellent natural remedy for digestion and diarrhea.

Pour a glass of boiling water over 1-2 dry thyme leaves, cover, leave to cool for 10 minutes, and drink a hot glass between meals three times a day.

6. Relieves menstrual pain

It may be hard to believe, but studies have shown that thymine can be as effective as ibuprofen.

In the study, 84 women received ibuprofen, thyme oil, or placebo to deal with menstrual pain. And the results showed that those who received thyme oil suffered from the least pain of all groups.

7. Keeps healthy flowers
