Thyme in a bottle

Thyme is a natural herb that has been used for centuries due to its medicinal and disinfectant properties.  This article by Healthy Food House reminded me of the many uses for thyme that I knew about, plus many I had never heard of.

 

In my home,  I use a product from the MELALEUCA line of products, called Soluguard, whose main ingredient is thyme.  I use my “thyme in a bottle” as a disinfectant on countertops, floors, walls, shower stalls, door knobs, and more.  It is a wonderful alternative to toxic household cleaners.  It also makes a great deodorizer (from garbage cans to stinky boots, shoes and sporting equipment) and stain remover all over the house.

In the garden, I use my thyme in a bottle to disinfect plant pots and to keep bugs from eating my plants.  It also makes a great disinfectant and skin soother on any cuts, scratches, stings and rashes I get from working in gardens all day.

My thyme in a bottle is amazing!
