Thyme

Thyme helps to relieve irritation of the upper respiratory tract.

The main active components of thyme are essential oils. Thyme essential oils can be divided into three main groups: thyme oil (contains phenolic compounds), 30-70% of thymol (Oleum Thymi), which has a strong antiseptic effect, then 3-15% of carvacol, while the third group is comprised of monoterpenes such as cineole, geraniol, borneol and linalool. Thyme also contains aliphatic alcohols, flavonoids, phenol-carboxylic acids (caffeic and rosemarinic acids), saponins and arabinogalactan.

Thyme dilutes mucus in the airways, makes it less viscous and easier to remove.

Anise and fennel

Anise and fennel help to relieve irritation of the upper respiratory tract.

Anise (Pimpinella anisum L, Apiaceae) and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare L. Apiaceae) are plants containing essential oils with anethole, which have a beneficial effect on the respiratory system.
