Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is an evergreen perennial herb
native to Mediterranean regions of the world. Due to its useful properties and wide
range of compounds it was favoured by Greeks and Romans, subsequently Thyme was
cultivated and spread across the planet. Herbalists value it for the following compounds:
Thymol, p-cymene, myrcene, borneol, linalool and
its high Vitamin C and A content.
Of the three main extraction methods used to produce herbal remedies, decoctions are simply the best. Macerations use solvents which may leave harmful residues in the end product, tinctures contain alcohol which is a systemic poison. Decoctions extract mineral salts and bitter principles through simmering herbs in water for a prolonged period. They contain far higher levels of active ingredients, no alcohol and can be made from hard plant parts unlike infusions. Our decoctions are made in small batches from organic ingredients by our fully qualified herbalist. They are also a superior form of supplementation than tablets or capsules, as many of those have artificially made ingredients and contain filers, flowing agents, excipients binding agents and preservatives. Also they often contain only one active ingredient neglecting the fact that molecules work synergistically in the body.
Our qualified Herbalist uses only our own zero ppm quad filtered distilled water, all equipment used is stainless steel and our decoctions are bottled into steam sterilised UV resistant pharmaceutical grade glass bottles, which obviates the need to use preservatives of any kind.
Be very careful not to touch the top of the bottle or the inside of the lid against anything or decant it into any container or jug that has not been steam sterilised.
