Production

Despite the care taken during the production process to mechanically remove foreign material, there may still remain some. It is therefore recommended to make a visual control, and if necessary a sorting, before any use.

Recommendations for use

  • Herbal tea: put a nice pinch in boiling water and let infuse ten minutes before filtering. About 3 cups a day
  • In a bath for young children, linden flowers provide a good restful sleep, smell good, soften irritated skins and can soothe a bit too turbulent children : put a handful of linden flowers in a pan with boiling water, infuse 10 minutes, filter and add to the bath (eventually with a little lavender).
  • Bath for adults (ancient cure against nervousness): infuse for half an hour 500 g of flowers enclosed in a bag (loose cloth) immersed in 10 liters of hot water, add this preparation to the bath water and relax in it as long as possible.
  • Bath for a soft skin: infuse 100g of flowers in 1 liter of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes, pass and add to the eveningbath water.
  • Lotion for face and skin: make a decoction of linden flowers (40 to 50 g per liter of water, let it boil for 15 to 20 minutes) and apply as a lotion against wrinkles and cutaneous spots, as compresses (apply on the skin a cloth soaked in the decoction) to illuminate the complexion or to treat irritated areas.
  • Linden flowers are best known for their use as infusion but they are also consumable as such, have a rather mild flavor, can be added to different dishes (young linden leaves can be mixed with salads, more leathery leaves are to cook before consumption).

Precautions for use

  • Warning: too strong dosages may, contrary to the usual recommended doses, excite and cause insomnia.
  • Not recommended (due to lack of data) internally to pregnant and lactating women and children under 12 years.
