Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Thyme is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, riboflavin, iron, copper, calcium and manganese, and doses of vitamin B6, folate, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc as well.
The oils in thyme include carvacolo, borneol, geraniol, and most importantly thymol, with powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties that have also been shown to have antimicrobial activity against a host of different bacteria and fungi, including Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, E. coli, and the deadly Shigella sonnei.
