First of all, what is thyme?
Thyme is an evergreen plant belonging to the Labiate family (which also includes rosemary and lavender), native to the western Mediterranean area.
It grows spontaneously in all regions in well-drained soil.
Thyme magical properties and Green Magic
Thyme is mostly used in green magic.
It comes directly from our Mother Earth, also called Gaia.
In this way, as with other magical herbs such as rosemary, burning thyme offers many more benefits than just flavoring the food.
However, for thyme to be productive, it is also necessary to know how to use it.
Sometimes it is as simple as keeping some dry leaves under the pillow to attract good health and drive away nightmares and bad dreams.
Other times, performing the spell requires knowledge, ingenuity, and wisdom. However, it is an inspiring plant.
The simple fact of having it at home will serve to flood your soul with courage and willingness to overcome how many vicissitudes appear before you.
Old origins of its magical uses and properties
Ancient Greeks considered thyme as a powerful plant endowed with magic. For them, this was an herb born directly from the tears of Helen of Troy. They believed that adding thyme into a liquid will enhance this liquid with exceptional medicinal and healing powers.
Historically, all societies have made wise use of thyme. Subsequently, it was the Romans who used it to perfume their products. Thus they managed not only to make them more appealing and fragrant, but they had higher invigorating powers.
Thyme was always present in historical societies. And so it reached the practitioners of Wicca magic.
Its users place branches in the corners of their homes. In this way, they prevent lightning strikes and expel bad influences.
Here’s how you can use thyme in magical practice
Rituals for boldness
Greek soldiers put thyme into bathwater to become more courageous.
Add it to your bathroom before an event that makes you nervous (anything from public speaking to a decisive game).
Relieve the emotional pain
If you’ve experienced a tragedy or the loss of a loved one, once you’ve gone through your deepest mourning phase, hang thyme’s bags over the windows and doors.
This will remove the heaviness of mourning from your home.
Once you’ve “freed the air,” bury the used thyme near the roots of a sturdy tree and think about the hard times you’ve been through.
Let the past go
Put the dried thyme in a box with the symbols of the part of your past you want to leave (photos, memories, etc.) and leave it there. When you’re ready, burn the box and spread the ashes over a bed of water.
Particularly appropriate for personal resolutions such as quitting smoking or quitting a job.
Honor the dead
Include the thyme in a funerary bouquet or (if appropriate) throw it on the coffin just before burial to help the spirit transition from one world to another.
Have it on your altar
The association of thyme with the element of water makes it an ideal addition to the altar to represent this element.
“Refresh” the water vibrations in your sacred space with a new branch of thyme from the garden.
Killing the negative vibrations
The ancient Mediterranean cultures used thyme to “disinfect” their homes and temples.
Burning the dried thyme in the family home after disagreements can help resolve disputes, erase negative emotional energy, and rebalance internal relationships.
Find lost items
European pagan traditions claim that fairies love thyme.
According to legend, they also love to make your things disappear just when you need them.
Fortunately, when asked politely, they usually don’t mind giving them back!
On the night of the full moon, leave an offer of fresh thyme and honey in the woods with the request that fairies should help you find something lost.
Enchant your moon ritual
Add the thyme to your Esbat of the Moon or Samhain, when forest spirits or fairies are said to be the most active, to enchant your circle with an atmosphere of change and mysticism.
Burn it in the cauldron, anoint your instruments with thyme essential oil or decorate your altar with some branches at the base of a candle.
At the beginning of the crescent moon, place several coins or a dollar (euro) bill with a thyme root, and bury it near a sunny spot in your yard.
Care for the plant as you would a good investment, watch it grow and attract prosperity!
Combine your wrists with thyme essential oil to embody an “otherworldly” quality or enhance your beauty.
How to use thyme for a relaxing and protected sleep
If you often have nightmares then try putting some sprigs of lemon thyme between the pillow and the pillowcase.
Say these simple words before going to sleep
“Mother Moon pamper me with your sweetness
Father Sun wake me up with your smile”
