General: Low-growing creeping thyme with tiny green leaves that have an intense caraway fragrance when crushed. Thyme grows best in a moist, well-drained soil and plenty of bright sunlight. Avoid overwatering.
Culinary Uses: Caraway thyme can be used as a substitute for real caraway in any recipe. It is especially nice in bread or cooked meat.
Medicinal Uses: Caraway thyme contains an essential oil that has antiseptic deodorant and disinfectant uses. It has also been used in perfumery and as mouth wash.
Ornamental Uses: Caraway thyme is low growing and releases a spicy scent when crushed which makes for a nice groundcover. It will produce starry purplish-white flowers that bees love. The trailing and wiry habit of the herb makes it an interesting addition to mixed pots and the longer leaves and stems make it look a bit more elegant than the common thyme.
