The linden is a tree that can be found wild in some of our forests, as well as even in some parks, quite appreciated for the shade that its large leaves provide.
The linden flower has sedative, antispasmodic and vasodilatory properties. It is also slightly diuretic.
It acts as a relaxant of the nervous system , which is why it is indicated in cases of stress, anxiety, restlessness, nervousness and consequently the insomnia to which these states usually lead. However, to achieve the relaxing effect of linden, we must consume it several days in a row.
Although less well known, the antispasmodic activities s of linden are also important, making it recommended for menstrual pain, contractures or intestinal spasms.
It is also slightly diuretic , favoring the elimination of liquids, acting as a mild cleanser.
Taken as an infusion, as we said before, it is a mild relaxant, perfect for situations of nervousness or stress or insomnia. Furthermore, due to its mild flavor, it is perfect for children . One option is to consume it after eating, either alone or mixed with other herbs, such as mint.
Another great time to drink it is an hour before going to bed: we will prepare an infusion of lime with milk and, if we want, a teaspoon of honey.
Due to its vasodilator effect, you can also make a hot bath, adding linden leaves, as a relief for varicose veins. And even in the form of steam for skin cleansing.
Other relaxing teas
When it comes to relaxing infusions, in addition to the linden, Valerian usually comes to mind. Leaving aside the medical conditions or particularities of each one, we could say that, in general, valerian is stronger than linden, and in terms of flavor ... well, linden has a mild and pleasant flavor, while Valerian is often considered by many to be one of the "least appetizing" teas.
