When and why you should use thyme

Indispensable in the mix of Italian spices: thyme. Thyme is actually an ancient medicinal plant and yet today we use thyme less for its effect than for its spicy aroma. But its relatives, sage, oregano, mint, marjoram and rosemary are not among our favorite spices by chance. They all belong to the labiate family, and for humans almost all species are medicinal plants. And are ones that will impress you.

Labiates - ideal medicinal plants for humans

The effect of labiates is very special. Because it refers to our consciousness. Only humans have a consciousness that surpasses all other living beings. But many problems arise from our consciousness. Fear of death, the uncertainty of the future and the certainty about the past, incriminating memories or the difficulty of functioning in society are only a few problems that our conscious life brings with it.

But this is exactly where the Mediterranean spice plants can help us, because they have an effect on our consciousness.

Labiates strengthen our ego and help us to control our emotions and feelings. Their focus is on fears and worries. Everyone carries fears and worries with them and it is difficult for us to put the fears aside, to let go and look at the future calmly. But this is exactly where the labiates support us.

"You are not alone" Spice

Feeling lonely and alone in this world. Almost everyone knows this feeling, but it is rarely discussed. But we are all single and individual humans and the feeling that we are alone from time to time is probably also quite normal. One also often thinks that in life we have to cope with everything on our own and have no help, left standing alone with fears and worries.

If these feelings occasionally occur, thyme should be quickly used. Thyme alleviates these feelings by showing us that we are not alone but strongly connected to nature, the world, other people and animals. It just seems like we are alone. In fact, we are not.

Loneliness makes one sad. And that is why thyme has long been a remedy for sadness. Thyme can be worth trying, especially for people who carry the feeling of sadness almost chronically and latently within them for many years.

"Out of the comfort zone" Spice

"Get out of the comfort zone." A saying we have been hearing a lot lately. It explains how we often have new goals and want to change things in our lives, but somehow we don't manage to achieve them. Perhaps we are afraid of change; maybe we are sometimes too lazy and too comfortable. We are conflicted that we actually want to do something, but at the same time cannot do it. In the long run, this makes one rather dissatisfied with oneself.

Thyme is the ideal little helper here. It supports our willingness and motivation to change. Means now. It reduces the fear and insecurity of new experiences and gives us a powerful boost of positive energy and self-confidence so that we can approach our goals more easily and with ease.

Thyme helps us to overcome the "inner couch potato" that keeps us on the sofa and in stuck our daily routines, and it sends us on an adventure. Thyme also ensures that we get negative feelings such as insecurity, fear or unwillingness under control and that these feelings do not overpower us. This makes it much easier for us to experience new things and pursue our goals.
