The genus Thymus has more than 150 species distributed in Europe. They differ from each other by their chemotype (biochemical composition). Thyme is a small shrub belonging to the Lamiaceae family. It has very small leaves, of the order of a few millimeters, and its flowers formed in spikes varying from white to purple pink. Thymus vulgaris with linalool is the gentlest of thyme, both for the skin and for the mucous membranes.
Thyme is native to Europe and southern areas. Aromatic plant par excellence, condiment and medicinal, the use of thyme goes back to the dawn of time. In Ancient Greece, thyme was burnt as an incense in front of the altars of the gods. The Egyptians made ointments with thyme to embalm the dead. In the Middle Ages, witches made love potions with this plant. Finally, thyme is well anchored in Provençal “culinary customs”: Provence herbs, bouquet garni, dish in sauce, grilled meats, thyme liqueur.
