Thyme and Mint, the pair of aromatic herbs you do not expect!
The Thyme is an essence known since ancient times for its medicinal uses. It was considered a natural antibiotic to treat all diseases of the respiratory tract. This aromatic herb has very small leaves with a strong consistency and an oval shape. In nature it grows in a bushy pattern and has a very delicate but immediately recognizable odor.
the Thyme is a plant that resists well even without frequent watering: it is sufficient even irrigation a week. It is used very often to prepare infusions, herbal oils and to flavor dishes.
Mint is a perennial herbaceous that can be found in different species. It is native to Asia, Africa and Europe.
The word Mint comes from mintha, the name of a nymph of Greek mythology. It was subsequently modified in Mentha by the Romans.
In the kitchen Mint is a constant, to flavor dishes, fresh drinks and infusions.
In the past it was frequently used as a healing agent, as with its leaves it is possible to produce a curative paste for wounds.
Mint needs fertile soil, better if mixed with humus and organic substance. Care must be taken not to irrigate it excessively because it fears water stagnation, but at the same time it is good to check that the earth is not too dry, especially if the plant is young.
Thyme and Mint are a duo that will certainly not go unnoticed!
