Thyme one of the world’s oldest cultivated plants and used by the earliest civilisations in medicine, cooking and perfume. Native to the Mediterranean, thyme 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. Throughout the ages, thyme has played a prominent role in funerals, where it was burned as incense and placed inside the coffin. It was believed the souls of the deceased passed to the flowers of the plant and including them ensured safe passage to the afterlife. According to legend, any place where thyme grows wild is a place blessed by the fairies and they would gather and dance there on Midsummer’s eve.
