THYME HERBAL TINCTURE
You may be familiar with thyme as a cooking herb, used in many recipes for different cuisines. But thyme is also a part of traditional herb medicine, thought in medieval times to provide courage and strength to those who consumed it. Today, thyme is recognized for several properties that may make it of medicinal value.
Thyme Tincture contains a number of biologically active compounds. These include chemicals called thymol and carvacol, two oil-soluble components with medicinal value.
Thymol and other components of thyme act as expectorants that help expel mucus from the respiratory tract. They also have antibacterial activity, according to the University of Michigan Health System, which indicates that thyme may be helpful in treating bronchitis and dry, hacking types of cough. It may also be useful for whooping cough in children. In Europe, thyme is endorsed by federal agencies to treat respiratory problems.
Thyme Tincture may also help relieve digestive complaints, including heartburn and gas, possibly by lessening spasms of the intestines. Thyme may also help with bad breath, or halitosis, because its components are active against some bacteria that live in the mouth. Because of this property, thyme extract is a common ingredient in commercial mouthwashes.
A recommended dose is 20 to 60 drops of the tincture, three times daily. Thyme tincture is considered to be safe, with no known side effects. However, while the tincture is safe, do not consume pure thyme oil as it may cause vomiting, dizziness and difficulty breathing.
Ingredients: Thyme, Grain Alcohol, Distilled Water
How To Use Tinctures
The benefit of tinctures is that the medicinal value is easily assimilated in the body, they are convenient to use, the average shelf life is 5 years, and they offer a more complete range of medicinal properties than dried herbs or capsules.
The best way to use liquid herbal tinctures is to put the suggested amount in a glass of water, tea, or juice and drink the entire contents. Tinctures can also be administered directly into the mouth without the assistance of water however some tinctures are unpalatable which is why most people prefer to dilute it into a beverage.
