Wild Avishane Thyme
from Mount Karkas

 

The region of Isfahan, at the heart of the Silk Road, in former Persia, is famous for its saffron trees, especially at the foot of Mount Karkas, 2100 metres above sea level.

This semi-wild area is very famous for its thousands of wild medicinal plants.

Its environment is pure, with no pesticides to be found.

Nature does its work and the villagers harvest all year round to supply local medicine sellers.

It is used in Iranian cuisine in salads, on grilled meat and fish or with minced meat. The elders also make it into a syrup after distilling it that is renowned for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, and more particularly to fight against Staphylococcus aureus.
