Thyme belongs with wild-thyme to the genus Thymus. The Greek "thymos" seems to come from the Egyptian "tham", the name of related species used in embalming. Very aromatic, it grows throughout the French Mediterranean region, Portugal, Spain, southern Italy and Greece, on arid slopes, rockeries and in the maquis. It is mainly found on limestone and clay soils. Like basil, sage, oregano, or rosemary, thyme is part of the labiatae family, these aromatic plants with powerful and evocative aromas from around the Mediterranean.
