Wild thyme (Thymus serpyllum, Lamiaceae) is included in herbal medicines for disorders of the upper respiratory tract. Its actions are similar to, but weaker than, those of thyme. Commercially, T. pulegioides and T. praecox subsp. arcticus are also offered as T. serpyllum. Wild thyme oil is used similarly.
