Lemon thyme has a definite citrus smell and flavour – alongside the herby flavour of regular thyme. Lemon Thyme leaves can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice or lemon zest or lemon flavouring. It’s a great way to season chicken, fish and vegetable dishes.
Use in stuffing, soups, sprinkle over vegetables – there’s plenty of dishes that Lemoin Thyme will enhance.
Like regular Thyme, this herb has antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that make it useful as a herbal tea to relieve colds, bronchitis, coughs, asthma, laryngitis and tonsillitis.
Many pharmaceutical gargles, cough drops, mouth washes, and vapour rubs contain thyme. Use externally for fungal infections, bites, aches and pains.
