Linden Tilla europaea
Historically, used in cough and cold remedies. The active ingredients in Linden help promote sweating as well. They work well for soothing nervous tension, panic, stress, headaches and migraines, and high blood pressure. Linden flowers both thin the blood and improve circulation, and have a reputation as a prophylactic against the development of arteriosclerosis and hypertension. In France, Linden flowers are used in lotions to soothe itchy skin, and the sapwood of the Tilia is used as a diuretic, choleretic, hypotensive and antispasmodic.
