Thyme Tea

To strengthen the immune system:
A few sprigs of thyme
A slice of lemon
A teaspoon of honey
A delicious way to warm up on these chilly mornings.

Thyme, herb of bravery courage and strength. Rudyard Kipling once wrote that “wind-bit Thyme smells like the perfume of the dawn in paradise.” I think he could be right.

Thyme has also been used as a charm for seeing fairies. Collect thyme flowers from a hillside where fairies are known to gather and lay the flowers upon your eyelids. Legend has it you will be granted the power to see any Fae folk who happen to be nearby.
