Also known as Basswood, Lime tree, and the Peace Tree, Linden is a fast-growing tree that produces fragrant clusters of medicinal flowers in late Spring which are highly desirable to honey bees. These flowers and their adjacent bracts have been used for centuries as medicine1. Most notably, these blossoms bring calm to the nervous system and are especially helpful to ease unrest and anxiety in children2. Sweet and delicious, Linden also has a notable effect in releasing tension in the cardiovascular system, helping to mitigate hypertension3. All the while, the sweetness of Linden makes it one of the key demulcents in the herbal repertory, gently moistening the digestive tract and tissues.
