Best Thyme Honey of Lefkada
Thyme is a Mediterranean herb. In particular, the wild thyme grows in the Eastern Mediterranean countries. People use thyme for culinary, ornamental and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. For example, Ancient Egyptians used thyme and other appropriate herbs to preserve the dead bodies by keeping them intact. Also, Ancient Greeks used to burn thyme in their temples or in their baths to purify and give a very special aroma in these rooms. Moreover, the oil of thyme, thymol, is an antiseptic liquid. In particular, it is used in several medical products today like mouthwashes. But its own flowers, which are a nectar source for honeybees, give a great value to thyme.
