White Thyme is a perennial, evergreen shrub that grows spontaneously in rocky and arid coastal areas. It is easily found in the western Mediterranean region and is widespread in Italy. The thyme plant is about 50 cm tall, highly branched, and woody at the base. It can be recognized by its small lanceolate leaves, which are gray-green in color and aromatic, with a dense fuzz on the underside. The flowers are white-pinkish and have 5 irregular petals.
Being typical of Mediterranean regions, there is evidence of the use of White Thyme since ancient times. The Egyptians included it in the embalming process, while the Greeks burned bundles of it as a purification ritual during religious ceremonies and used it for massages before a competition or a fight to give courage and physical strength. In the Middle Ages, it was a tradition to embroider thyme flowers on the garments of knights, as it was considered the flower of courage, a valuable tonic for the mind and spirit.
