Some Info taken from Wiki Pedia Org: Za’tar (زعتر) is a popular mixture of spices that originated in the Middle East. In ‘Arabic, Za’tar refers to Thyme (Thymus vulgaris). Green za’tar mixture is traditionally composed of dried thyme (Thymus vulgaris), toasted white sesame seeds, and salt. Some sources additionally list savory, hyssop, oregano, cumin, and fennel seed — to name a few. Red za’tar is made with dried thyme with the addition of sumac. Different versions of za’tar will differ greatly in proportions. Like most English words from Semitic languages, there exist alternate spellings: zaatar, za’atar or zahatar.
The locals use an oil called “Balsam al ‘Arabee” made by doctors here in the Kingdom. Subhaanallaah, it does wonders for pain by Allaah’s Permission and cures children of illnesses that delay their ability to walk. I will research the ingredients as best as I can In Shaa Allaah, perhaps it is made with something we’re already familiar with but never tried. Allaahu Aa’lam.
