Thyme fro courage
Thyme, in Ancient Greece was as a source of courage, and was used as incense and infusions for bathing, and, to flavour liqueurs and cheese. Placed beneath a pillow, in sachets, it was said to aid sleep and ward off nightmares. Women gave it to warriors before they headed off into battle; it was placed on coffins to ensure a safe passage into the afterlife. Thyme is one of the few herbs which will retain all its flavour when dried, and is one of the herbs used in Bouquet Garni, a bundle of herbs, tied together and used to flavour savoury dishes. Oil of thyme is an effective mouthwash and antiseptic. As a tea, it helps coughs and bronchitis.
