It’s Thyme to Soothe Scratchy Throats!
Thymus vulgaris or common thyme is a well-known member of the mint family, botanically known as Lamiaceae. All the cousins in this family (rosemary, sage etc) have square stems, similar leaf arrangements, and often have potent aromatic oils that make them popular for flavouring cooking and also fabulously medicinal.
Thyme has antiseptic and soothing activity, which means it can soothe dry, scratchy tissue and tickly throats.
What more could you ask for in a formula for scratchy throats? What about honey? Not just any honey - thyme honey. New Zealand wild thyme honey has one of the highest antioxidant ratings of any honey, anywhere. It’s also a powerful antibacterial agent. It tastes amazing to boot.
