Thyme is a potent antibacterial and antiviral herb, one of my favorites for respiratory congestion, and I am so excited to bring you this conversation about thyme with Maia Toll. You’ll also receive Maia’s recipe for thyme za’atar, which is a delicious way to enjoy thyme with eggs, bread, fish, pasta, veggies, salads… almost anything, really.
Maia is the author of the best selling and award-winning Wild Wisdom Series including The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary, The Illustrated Crystallary and The Wild Wisdom Companion. The seed for this series was planted when Maia apprenticed with a traditional healer in Ireland where she spent extensive time studying the growing cycles of plants, the alchemy of medicine making, and the psycho-spiritual aspects of healing. Maia’s books build on this foundation, eloquently translating patterns and metaphors from the natural world to help modern seekers understand and grow within their own lives. She also owns an herb shop called Herbiary, with locations in Asheville, Philadelphia, and online.
