預防流感香薰三寶(二)

百里香精油(Thyme Essential Oil)是增強免疫力的良方,防腐、抗菌、抗病毒功效極佳,對於治療感冒、咳嗽和喉嚨痛均有助益,自古埃及、希臘和羅馬時代已經被廣泛用作防治感冒。

百里香的花語是勇氣,古希臘時代女生在衣服繡上百里香的圖樣或配帶百里香,即寓意要尋找愛人,等待追求者的示愛。害羞靦腆的男生喝杯百里香茶,就能鼓起勇氣追求真愛。

其英文名字來自希臘文Thumos,意指香味。百里香主要產自法國、西班牙、地中海地區和埃及,在中國亦被稱為千里香或九里香。精油來自蒸餾百里香的葉和花,顏色淡黃,帶強烈的藥草味。

古羅馬士兵出征前都會配戴百里香以激勵勇氣以及驅走毒蟲、毒蛇。而在瘟疫蔓延的中世紀歐洲,當時的公共場所都被灑上百里香水以防治疫病。第一和第二次世界大戰時歐洲各醫院都把百里香用作消毒劑。時至今日,味道辛香的百里香是烹調法國菜不可或缺的香料。

請注意必須稀釋後使用,另高血壓患者及孕婦忌用。不宜長期使用。
