Benefits of Linden (Lime tree) flower tea (Tilia flos):

When the delicious tea prepared from these flowers is drunk, it instills the sun's warmth in the body, causing once to break out in perspiration. Natural healers have long exploited this effect. They give hot linden-flower tea to induce sweating-the body's way of cooling itself-to help reduce fevers, in fact, in folk medicine it is often referred to as "fever tea." The tea has many other health benefits as well: It helps to alleviate coughs and colds, stimulate the appetite, reduce anxiety, relive insomnia and ease painful cramps. Because this tea has so many uses, it is a valuable everyday remedy for any household.

Therapeutic effect
Linden flower contain the curative plant fiber mucilage, as well as many vitamins and the essential oil farnesol. When ingested as a bot tea, this medley of compounds reduces fevers. The tea is also a good pain reliever-especially for cramps-and it is a highly effective expectorant, which helps to break up mucus buildup and congestion. It is safe to drink a cup or two of the tea every day.

Flavonoids against fever
Linden-flower tea is highly valued for its ability to reduce fevers. It does this by inducing perspiration, which releases heat from the body. This effect is due mainly to the flavonoids in the blossoms, which act directly on the sweat glands. To maximize the tea's effectiveness, dress warmly and, if possible, stay in bed for 30 minutes or so after drinking the tea.

Mucilage against bronchitis
The tea's high mucilage content calms the cough receptors in the respiratory passages, thereby reliving bronchial problems. Mucilage also promotes healing of the airways.

Steep 2 teaspoons of dried flowers in 1 cup of hot water and cover it for 10-15 minutes. Drink 3 cups per day.
