A great bushfood herb with a variety of uses. Native Thyme is a hardy plant once it gets going. Native Thyme is related to the Indian Sacred Basil Ocimum sanctum.
Grow your own native thyme. This perennial plant grows easily from seed and leaves can be picked throughout the year for garnishing or as a native tea. Once established this plant is very tough and will provide you with year round food. The plant grows in the same way as basil or mint and can be used in tomato dishes, soups, salsas, salads.
The German explorer Ludwig Leichardt called the plant “wild marjoram” and used the leaves to make a tea.
