HEALTH BENEFITS OF LINDEN FLOWERS

Linden flowers are rich in bioactive substances, among which the most important are flavonoids, mucilage and essential oil. They show many positive properties:

They work diagonally and support the body's natural defenses
Active substances contained in linden flowers, primarily flavonoids and mucilage, increase sweat secretion, which is why linden is used most often in light colds and at the first symptoms of flu. Not only the infusion works, but also the bath with the addition of linden flowers. In addition, linden infusions help reduce nasal congestion and alleviate a runny nose. Mucous substances are expectorant and protect the respiratory tract, therefore they help reduce throat irritation and bring relief from coughing.


- The infusion of linden flowers, due to the essential oil contained in them, has a sedative effect, in other words it has a soothing effect on the nervous system and facilitates falling asleep. Works on both adults and children. Lime infusions should be used in conditions of elevated tension and stress.

- Positively affect the functioning of the digestive system
The components of linden flowers support digestive processes by stimulating the secretion of gastric, pancreatic and intestinal juice. They also increase the influx of bile into the duodenum. This is especially helpful in digestive ailments such as heartburn, flatulence, and excessive fullness after a meal. In addition, the mucus present in linden covers the inner wall of the digestive tract, which helps protect it and soothes irritations.

- Help reduce eye and skin irritation
An infusion of linden prepared in the form of a compress helps to alleviate conjunctivitis and swelling around the eyes. Washing the face with an infusion helps reduce skin irritation.


WHEN TO USE LINDEN FLOWERS
- first signs of a cold and flu
- persistent runny nose and cough
- stress, irritability, nervous tension
- problems with sleeping

JASMINE BUDS

I have a problem here. The Jasmine Buds look so pretty, so do the Rose buds (which I purchased earlier) I and finding it difficult to put them in hot water. I simply enjoy their aroma and appearance. I guess if I purchase a larger quantity of both I will be able to drink their extracts. Thank you.
