Tips

 

 

 To make Linden tea, bring a mug’s worth of water to a boil in a teapot or kettle. Put a teaspoonful of Linden into a tea ball or place it directly into the tea cup. Pour boiling water over them in the cup. Allow the tea to steep for about five minutes. The longer you steep the tea, the stronger it will be. Drink it hot!

 

 

Linden is also great for soothing Rheumatism. Try boiling linden leaves in two liters of water, and adding them to your hot bath with a few leaves. Stay in the hot water for thirty minutes, and repeat three times a week for great results!

 

Remember:  If you are ill or you have any health concerns, consult your health practitioner. Do not continuously drink the same infusion for more than ten days.

 

When you use herbal remedies, be aware that they can be extremely powerful, and should you have any side effects when taking these infusions, immediately stop using the herb and consult your health practitioner right away.
