Wild thyme is an herb. The flowering parts of the plant are used to make medicine.

People take wild thyme for breathing problems including cough, bronchitis, and swollen airways. They also take it for kidney and bladder disorders, intestinal gas, and colic.

Some people apply wild thyme directly to the skin for arthritis and sprains.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Kidney problems.
Bladder problems.
Intestinal gas.
Arthritis, when applied directly to the skin.
Sprains, when applied directly to the skin.

More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of wild thyme for these uses.
