Just be aware that simply planting thyme won’t do the trick. You need to expose the natural oils found in thyme in order for it to have any effect.

Also, some gardeners have found that the blooms of the thyme plant attract bees. So, if you want more pollinators in your garden these flowers may be a good way to go. Just make sure to let a few of your sprigs go uncut so they can grow enough to produce these bee friendly flowers!

Thyme Uses: Herbal Folklore

Did you know that herbs were such an integral part of life that there are even stories of folklore around some of them? Thyme was often thought of as a favorite of fairies. So, a new patch of wild thyme would’ve been where the fairies had danced. Also, there was some myth in German and Danish folklore that certain thyme oil could be used to allow us to see the fairies. However, this thyme oil would’ve had to have been gathered on the side of a hill where fairies were previously.

Also, English and French people thought that creating a bed of thyme in their garden would attract fairies to stay in their gardens. Plus, the fairy Puck in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream talks about the thyme on the bank of the river, which shows how important it was thought to be for fairies.
