There is something undeniably enchanting about honey; the product of flower nectar transformed by bees, as if by alchemy – but in fact through the far less-poetic act of regurgitation – into a sweet, golden elixir.
This golden liquid has been shown to help fix ailments ranging from a pesky cough to a painful wound.
Thymol gives thyme its distinctive flavor. It has strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for the lungs. Thymol is a strong antioxidant which destroys free radicals.
- 1/2 jar honey
- 40g thyme, dried
Stir the herb into the jar of honey. If the mixture is too thick, pour in 50 ml of purified water. You can purify the water by boiling it first.
Stir well and keep the jar in a warm place for 2 weeks.
Stir the content once in a while. Strain the mixture using a gauze or tea strainer. Take a tablespoon of the remedy twice a day.
