Linden Leaf & Flower – Tilia argentum
Linden leaf and flowers come from a deciduous tree called a lime tree, although it has no relation to the citrus fruit. Instead it is related to basswood and mallows in the Malvacea family. Linden’s mucilage and flavonoid content have often been used to make slaves, lotions, toiletries and cosmetics. Linden may also be found in soothing syrups and lozenges, it is non-narcotic and promotes relaxation, but users must beware that it may increase effects of anxiety medications or other prescription drugs.
