Description

Lemon thyme

Lemon thyme or Thymus x citriodorus. It is a variety of thyme that we know and that is used in cooking to spice. This plant is a sub-shrub.

From the lemon thyme, not only the flower is edible but, as in the common thyme, the bud is also used for flavouring. The buds are dark green with a yellowish tone and they offer an intense lemon scent. It is ideal to give a citrus touch to recipes.

Pairing

The good thing about lemon thyme is that it can be used for any recipe: in a salad, a stew, with fish, meat and sauces.

Medicinal properties

From this plant, essential oils containing thymol and monoterpene volatile phenols are extracted, which act as an antibacterial and antifungal agent. But in addition to this, the lemon thyme has other properties, standing out the following ones:

  • It favours the digestion since it is a magnificent depurative
  • Fights against anaemia: the Lemon thyme is high in iron, which can help raise blood haemoglobin levels.
  • Contains Lysine, which facilitates relaxation.
  • In high concentration, it can be used to treat oral and gum diseases.
