If using dried thyme, make sure it is of good quality and not too old as dried herbs can lose their effectiveness over time.  You can also add ginger (see below), lemon and half a stick of cinnamon to brew a tea that will fight even the most evil cold.

 

Method 2:

Use either the essential oil (just a couple of drops) or fresh thyme in the bath.  Breathe the steam from the bath to relieve congestion while the oil is absorbed into the skin to help strengthen the body.

Make a steam inhalation by pouring hot water into a large bowl, leaning over the bowl and draping a towel over your head to create a steam tent.  Add a few drops of thyme oil to the hot water and breathe deeply.  Keep your eyes closed as you breathe because the oil combined with steam can irritate your eyes.
