"Thymus (USDA Organic) English Thyme, Thymus vulgaris 'Thyme, English', has slightly pointed leaves ranging from dark green to woolly silver or variegated green. It is highly aromatic with woody stems. Aroma: Can be extracted to create essential oil for aroma therapy. Treats headaches, insomnia, and more. Cooking: Versatile seasoning for chicken, seafood, vegetables, and desserts. Cosmetic: Used to clear the scalp of dandruff. Medicinal: Shown to relieve coughs and clear congestion. Can be used to make a mouthwash to treat sore throats. Harvest small amounts of English Thyme throughout the season as needed. Cut back 2"" from the ground for your main harvest in late summer. Taking a second harvest before winter may make plants less able to survive a cold, wet winter. To dry, tie bunches and hang in a warm, shady, airy site. Or you can strip the leaves from the stems and dry them on a close-meshed screen. Store in a tight-lidded jar in a cool, dark place. Thyme can also be frozen. "
