Lemon Thyme
Botanical Name: Thymus x citriodorus

Flowering Lemon Thyme plant.

The lemon thyme herb is a very decorative and low growing plant. It's a hybrid and very common in many kitchen gardens. Has small, yellow-green leaves and whorls of light lilac flowers with leaf-like bracts.

The leaves have a wonderful and very intense lemon and thyme fragrance.

They are used to flavour various dishes, especially fish, stuffings and vegetables. Also used in tea making, to flavour schnapps, vodka and liqueurs - and for making potpourris.

The lemon thyme oil is considered less irritant than other thyme oils, and is used in aromatherapy for asthma.
