Thyme is native to the Mediterranean and was spread throughout Europe by the Romans, whose soldiers added it to their bathwater to increase bravery, strength and vigour. In medieval Britain, ladies embroidered sprigs of thyme into their knights' scarves and infused tea with it to increase courage and keep away nightmares. According to legend, any place where thyme grows wild is a place blessed by the fairies and it can be used as a smudging herb to purify the space used for a magickal ritual.
