Honey is a substance that is made from flower nectar that bees transform into a sweet, golden elixir as if by alchemy, but in reality, they do so through the less poetic act of regurgitation. This golden liquid has proven to be an effective aid in treating illnesses like a bothersome cough and painful wounds.
Thymol gives thyme its distinctive flavor. It has strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which is perfect for the lungs. Thymol is a strong antioxidant which destroys free radicals.
