Linden Blossom tea is most commonly associated with having a fever and being ill with the flu due to that fact that it contains mucilage. Mucilage is a sticky substance that helps soothe irritated membranes in the mouth or throat, resulting in a decrease in mucus production. In folk medicine, it is used to activate excessive sweating that quickly gets rid of toxins in the body. Linden blossom tea is ideal for combatting stress, anxiety and promoting overall relaxation. Although it has been around for centuries, linden blossom remedies are only now starting to gain more support in the modern world.
