         I'd like to make it well known that when research is conducted via academic journals, Linden flower, and an endless number of others, have bee studied by phytochemist. I'm not going to make medical claims but I want this to be known. To be specific, phytochemistry is the branch of science that peers into the mysteroius and magical microscopic realms of these natural wonders. These highly educated minds from Universities around the globe have been synthesizing, and researching pharmacological compounds produced by nature for ages. We understand their potential benefits through meticulous scientific research. A large portion of modern pharmaceutical drugs exists thanks to herbal remedies.


Linden flowers make a grea tea, tincture, and are even sold in capsules. Personally, I think they go great with other flowers and especially with some Ginger root added. The properties of Ginger I believe may add to their potential of this herb. Other herbals that it goes good with include: Marshmallow, Coltsfoot, and Mullein leaf. It's sad that cows sometimes graze upon these flowers. You can actually add them to salads.. As odd as it may sound, sometimes I like to dump the tea bags out and just wash the raw material down with a drink. This may seem pecuiliar, but it's essentially the capsules without the caps. Some Native Americans use it for easing anxiety and even anger, along with Elephant Head.


Benefits

Modern herbalists and other holistic or alternative practitioners prescribe these flowers for a wide range of conditions. Generally, Linden is used for sore throats, colitis, and even ulcers. A phytochemical produced by the plant known as "mucilage" is one of the the active ingredients. It coats mucous membranes to soothe inflammation and irritation. Mucilage is also found in many other plants. This is a very important fact to remember. Specific compounds are found recurring in a large number of different species, and even insects. In other words, Mucliage is a naturally reoccurring chemical produced by many plants.


The flowers of this Linden plant are just one source of mucilage. Herbs with this phytochemical are typically use in my observation upon years of research for topical applications, and upset stomach, and respiratory ailments. I'm not a doctor or scientist though these are just correlations. Sassafras is another plant that contains it and I would be curiuos to see what the two would be like together. I personally woulnd't use anything every single day. I think in general no more than 2-4 grams daily of this stuff but I have experience with it. For a sore throat, I actually enhale the vapor off of the hot liquid. It's soothing and very relaxing as well. I will leave you with a little "folk lore". This botanical has been known throughout history as the "tree of lovers."
