A Brief History of Thyme Summary


A Brief History of Thyme: From Magical Powers to the Elixir of Youth by Quentin Seddon

The Romans used it as a remedy for melancholy and bad breath. Monks in the Dark Ages got drunk on it and doctors and herbalists in the Middle Ages used it in their remedies for sciatica and gout. Amazingly, in the 1990s scientists have discovered its magical properties as an elixir of youth. Thymus vulgaris is, in truth, the most miraculous of plants. With a perceptive eye and beguiling humour Quentin Seddon tells the story of thyme- from its emergence thousands of years before Christ, when Egyptians first used it to preserve their mummies, and the Greeks and Romans as a fumigant and food flavouring. It includes recipes, tips on how to grow and distil thyme, and stylish cartoons.
