A cup of Linden tea

Hiding in this perfect cup of herbal tea, is an herb filled with  amazing health benefits. Linden, Tilia is the name of the genus that contains varieties of trees named linden, whose flowers, leaves, and extracts have been used for medicinal and decorative purposes for many years. The tilia genus members are often also called lime or basswood, and the different types lindens have slightly different components and effects.

Some of the most interesting health benefits of linden include its ability to improve the immune system, prevent certain forms of cancer, calm the body, detoxify the body, eliminate anxiety, lower inflammation, and lower blood pressure.

Health Benefits of Linden

Anxiety Issues: One of the most frequent uses for linden tea is as an anxiety aid, as its soothing properties have been known to reduce mental stress and anxiety. If you suffer from mood swings or unexplained chronic stress, a cup of linden tea can be a very wise addition to your health regimen. It has a minor effect on your hormone levels, inducing a state of relaxation for the body and mind.

Colds and Flu: In addition to stimulating sweating to break a fever, linden also contributes to other symptoms of colds and flu’s, such as inflamed or swollen membranes throughout the mouth and respiratory tracts. This can help to reduce coughing and irritation, which is why linden is often relied on to sooth sore throats and calm coughing. Linden tea can also help to eliminate congestion, making it a true triple-threat to colds, and represents a major boost to your immune system.

Inflammation: For those who suffer from tension headaches and other conditions causing inflammation, such as arthritis and gout, linden tea can help eliminate those painful symptoms. Just as it reduces the inflammation in the respiratory tracts, it also helps to lower blood pressure and remove inflammation in the blood vessels, thereby preventing the small capillary back-ups that so commonly lead to headaches, as well as the swollen tissue of arthritis sufferers.linden tree

A Final Word of Warning: There are some people who are allergic to these flowers, so speak to your doctor before adding linden tea to your favorite beverages list. Also, there is a maximum dosage, so avoid drinking more than 3 cups per day. Furthermore, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, it usually isn’t a good idea to drink linden tea, nor if you have heart disease, as this flower can negatively interact with certain pharmaceuticals.

Prepare for a change, is in the wind

In the next few hours we will be in the winds of change, are you ready?. As the new moon is getting ready to set it’s course, the atmospheric vibrational  changes will be happening in the energy force of the Earth.

What does this mean for you?

Simple things might seem different, your tolerance for annoying things might be “short”( becareful). You will become aware of the changes you need to make in yourself.

During this time of changes you may be reluctant, but it is time to “Shift”!

So write your abundance check on Friday night(when the new moon starts getting fuller) Light a while candle tonight and ask  the Angels to provide a clear and easy path, place a copper penny on each window sill to bring in abundance.

Open your heart to the NEW You who is coming in!
