For digestion

To relieve bloating and minor digestion problems , rely on the virtues of thyme infusion . Thyme herbal tea is a little-known but formidable solution to combat bloating. So go get some fresh air in the southern scrubland to stock up on fresh thyme and benefit from the properties of this plant.
