I'd like to make it well known that when research is conducted via academic journals, Linden flower, and an endless number of others, are backed by science. 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 benefits through meticulous scientific research. A large portion of modern pharmaceutical drugs exists thanks to herbal remedies.
Hopefully this will detur someone in the near future from thinking of a wild herb such as Tilia europaea as a "weed" growing on the side of the road that should be mindlessly cut down and labeled as an annoyance. Remember that this "weed" uses the suns energy, and the biospheres water and c02, to produce an endless array of highly sophsticated organic compounds. I challange anyone to name one single chemist that can do this. The point is, plant based medicine does not get enough credit or respect for the work that it does. In essence, the Tilia europaea species is a highly intelligent chemist with knowledge far surpassing that of human beings.

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.
Ever heard of the over-the-counter medication known as "Mucinex"? It certainly sounds a lot like the name "Mucilage", doesn't it? I don't want any trouble.. I'm just sayin! Aside from the strikingly similar names, both medications perform the same actions. Does this not seem suspcious to you? If you conduct further research, you'll become aware of the fact that pharmaceutical companies obtain a lot of their medicine from chemicals that have existed in nature for centuries. Of course the synthetic versions may be altered forms of these drugs. This means there is an infinite amount of this and other natural medicines all around the world to be exlpoited by drug companies. Linden is just one source of mucilage.
Preparation And Dosages:
Despite its benefits, herbalists suggest no more than 2-4 grams daily. Teas and infusions are suggested for best results. This herb should not be consumed for too long of a period of time. For a sore throat, it's typically made into a decoction-like tea. For best results, add a small drop of oil to the water and cover the mixture. Try not to excessivly boil the Linden flowers. You want the water just barely boiling. In fact, once it starts to boil you can reduce the heat. Then, you should cover it. Cook it until the water has a nice rich color that resembles the herb. For other internal aliments herbal practitioners suggest the 'toss and wash', capsules, or tinctures ( which cou can easily make ).
Here's a little "folk lore" for ya. This botanical has been known throughout history as the "tree of lovers."
