Did you know that thyme, besides having amazing benefits to the general health, can also be used for oral health?
The same herb that brings a special flavor on our dishes can be a great ally in the treatment of diseases that affect oral health and airways.
In older times, the Sumerians and Egyptians used thyme as a medicine and also to embalm their corpses.
Also, the Romans believed that immersion baths with thyme brought vigor, and they also burned the herb to get rid of venomous animals.
Around the years of 1600, Nicholas Culpeper, the British herbal expert, found the powers of thyme to treat coughs and strengthen the lungs.
To him, this herb was the best natural medicine to treat whooping cough, eliminate phlegm, and alleviate respiratory troubles. Isn’t it amazing?
Rich in thymol, it helps kill the bacteria that cause tooth cavities, periodontal disease, and oral infections. All of that helps a lot with oral health.
For that, all you need is to use the essential oil of thyme.
This herb is contraindicated for pregnant or nursing women. People who suffer from heart failure, gastritis, ulcers, or stomach irritation must dilute the tea.
