Linden leaf has been historically used in Europe and America for centuries for a wide range of complaints - mostly associated with its purported calming properties. The flowers are added to baths or teas and you'll still find Tilia europaea used in many herbal remedies today.
Linden is useful for supporting healthy blood pressure levels and is a gentle antispasmodic herb.* It is a mild analgesic (used to reduce pain) and can be used to address menstrual cramps.*
The Linden tree is found in both Europe and North America. There are many folktales concerning linden across Europe. One of the most radical is of Celtic origin that states that if you sit under the linden tree you will be cured of epilepsy. In Roman and German folklore, the linden tree is seen as the "tree of lovers", and Polish folklore tells that the wood is good protection against both the evil eye and lightning.
