OVERVIEW: 

Linden is a soft wood tree related to the basswood and mallows and is deliciously fragrant. Linden flowers and leaves are gentle, mild and pleasant tasting. They are used by herbalists as a relaxing nervine safe enough for the entire family. Linden leaves and flowers make for beauty products, soothing syrups and lozenges and an intriguing and healing cup of tea steeped in health benefits. The gentle herb has natural diuretic and antioxidant properties and may soothe an irritated digestive tract. Historically, this drink has been called the "nectar of the kings" due to its widespread use for medicinal purposes.
