HISTORY: Thyme is prescribed against impotence and frigidity. Weakened men may confidently resort to its leaves or to an erotic potion prepared from thyme and pepper, as this potion may restore their erotic vigor.
A folk saying about thyme goes as follows: “Whoever eats a lot of thyme, feels an urgent need to hold on their knees the most beautiful conquests.”
DESCRIPTION: Thyme is a semi-woody subshrub with aromatic, linear to oval, gray-green leaves, about a half inch long. In summer, thyme produces tiny lilac to purple flowers arranged in dense, compact heads. It is mainly spread in the western Mediterranean region and southern Italy. It is cultivated all over the world, from the fields to the mountains.

RECIPES: For the aphrodisiac effect, take sublingually the powder made of the dried and grind herb, in quantities of 1 gram, every six hours, four times a day, for five months, if you desire to obtain a long-term effect.
