Thyme honey

Antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, useful in case of colds and coughs, helps to accelerate wound healing especially when combined with propolis
Thyme honey is an amber-colored honey with interesting anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and antispasmodic properties. Thanks to these characteristics, this type of honey is considered useful to counteract respiratory tract infections, cough but also to perform a healing action on open wounds (Imtara et al, Food Sci Nutr , Nov 2018 - Hashemian et al, Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol, Jun 2015). Moreover, thyme honey is highly antioxidant and antitumor, since a substance contained in it, trihydroxy ketone, helps to counteract the growth of some types of prostate cancer cells (Kassi et al, Phytomedicine, Sep 2014). With this statement we do not mean that it is possible to cure such a disease with honey but we think it is important to understand the strength and effectiveness of thyme honey. Let's see in detail the possible applications.

Cold and cough

This honey is particularly useful to decongest the respiratory tract in case of cold and to calm the cough (Ashkin et al, J Farm Pract, Mar 2013). For this purpose, you can prepare an herbal tea by mixing in equal parts, linden flowers, thyme, eucalyptus and mint leaves. Infuse a tablespoon of this mixture in a cup of boiling water and leave to brew for ten minutes, then filter and drink with the addition of a teaspoon of thyme honey.

Wounds

Scientific studies have shown that, thanks to its antimicrobial action, the application of thymus honey twice a day on open wounds is able to accelerate the healing processes (Takzaree et al, Iran J Public Health, Apr 2017 - Voidarou et al, Anaerobe, Dec 2011). In addition to this, the synergy between thymus honey and propolis was also demonstrated. In particular, by applying a combination of these two remedies on open wounds it is able to maximize the healing effects, to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the inflammatory phase compared to the remedies taken individually (Takzaree et al, Acta Med Iran, Apr 2016).
