Lemon thyme is a small, shrub-like herb with tiny leaves growing in clusters along multi-branched stems. Natural compounds in Lemon thyme, like limonene and thymol, give the herb a citrusy flavor. The lemon flavor can mask some of the bitterness typically present in garden thyme. During the summer months, flowers with small, two-lipped, lilac blossoms appear at the ends of the stems. The flowers will remain until the weather gets cool. Lemon thyme flowers have the same smell and flavor of the leaves.
Lemon thyme is rich in iron, as well as vitamins C, D and B-complex. The essential oil in Lemon thyme contains natural compounds that provide antioxidant and antiseptic properties. Lemon thyme tea is often prescribed to children as a respiratory aid for its decongestant and relaxant qualities.
