Thyme is a common household spice with many medicinal uses. During the Middle Ages, Thyme was grown in monastery gardens in southern France, Spain, and Italy for use as a cough remedy, digestive aid and treatment for intestinal parasites. The active ingredient in Thyme is thymol, which comes from the oil of this herb and is used in over-the-counter mouthwash and mentholatum products because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties.
