How To Make Thyme Seasoning

Thyme seasoning

Thyme seasoning, whose main ingredient is thyme, adds a delightful flavor to many dishes. It enhances taste with earthy, savory notes. I mainly use it for my favorite Mediterranean and French cuisines, including soups, sauces, and stews. Also, depending on the recipe, thyme seasoning is great for roasts and chicken breasts. 

Making thyme seasoning at home shouldn’t be a teary task. It involves blending the versatile herb with other common ones, including rosemary, sage, oregano, and basil. Mix the spices with onion, black pepper, garlic powder, and salt to taste. Let’s see the perfect way of mixing the above ingredients. You will need several items.


  • Three tablespoons dried thyme leaves
  • One tablespoon of dried rosemary leaves
  • One tablespoon of dried oregano leaves
  • One tablespoon of dried basil leaves
  • One teaspoon of dried sage
  • One teaspoon of garlic powder 
  • One teaspoon of onion powder
  • One teaspoon salt 
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper  


  1. Gather the Ingredients.
  2. Measure all your dried herbs and spices.
  3. Mix dried thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil, sage, and garlic powder in a bowl. Add pepper, salt, and onion powder and mix.
  4. Crush and blend the mixture using a mortar and pestle. If you have a spice grinder, it is a great alternative. Or, mix them well with a spoon.
  5. Adjust the salt and pepper (seasonings) according to your preference. You can also add more of any specific herb if you desire a more savory flavor of that particular herb.
  6. Transfer the thyme seasoning blend to an airtight container. Store it in an excellent, dark space to maintain its freshness.
  7. Label your jar with the date of preparation so you can keep track of its freshness.
  8. Enjoy your homemade thyme seasoning blend, ready to use! You can sprinkle it on roasted vegetables and meats or use it in soups, stews, and other dishes for added flavor. Remember to adjust the quantities and ingredients based on your taste preferences.
