Thyme is an antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antioxidant, and has bronchial anti-spasmatic effects. It is used externally for infected wounds and internally for respiratory and digestive infections. Oil of thyme (thymol) is used in commercial mouthwashes (it is the main ingredient in Listerine) and toothpastes. It is not effective against nail fungus despite the fact that components in thyme, thymol, and thyme essential oil have antifungal properties.

Thyme baths are thought to be helpful for neurasthenia, rheumatic problems, bruises, swellings, and sprains. However, avoid whole-body baths except with a doctor’s permission in cases involving large skin injuries, acute skin illnesses, severe fever or infectious disease, or cardiac insufficiency. Aromatherapists consider the essential oil a powerful mood-enhancing herb for low spirits, fatigue, mental stress, and premenstrual tension. According to the German Commission E, thyme is approved for bronchitis and coughs.

Allergies, respiratory; asthma; and cough. The essential oil of thyme encourages expectoration of phlegm and quells spasms of the bronchial passages. It acts by stimulating the cilia, or hairs, lining the bronchial passages. The cilia push congested mucus outward. Inhaling the steam from thyme placed in hot water is said to give the same antispasmodic and bronchial-clearing effects as the essential oil.


Recommended Use

Thyme is available as an essential oil, both as a liquid and in enteric-coated capsules. A tea can be made using 1 to 2 grams of dried thyme herb steeped in 1 cup of hot water.

European authorities caution that thyme can cause abdominal contractions. Using thyme oil in bath preparations has, in rare cases, caused severe inflammation and hyperemia (an unusual flood of blood to a particular part of the body). Added to toothpastes, it can cause cracks in the corners of the mouth and a swollen tongue.

You should not use thyme if you have a duodenal ulcer or if you are pregnant. Thyme oil should be used topically only. Taken internally, it can cause vomiting and dizziness, convulsions, coma, and cardiac and respiratory arrest.

If you have any kind of thyroid condition, you should talk to a health-care professional before taking medicinal doses of thyme. Studies indicate that the herb suppresses normal thyroid activity. It can be used in normal amounts as a food seasoning, however.
