Thyme is a shrub with small silvery green leaves and beautiful pink flowers. It grows preferably in dry places, and is cultivated as an aromatic, or to extract an essence that is obtained by distilling the flowering parts of the plant.
The numerous essences and oils obtained are used in the perfume industry or in the pharmaceutical industry, depending on their degree of purification.
