Linden flower is considered valuable in the treatment of headaches, indigestion, hysteria, and diarrhea. It is also thought to be effective for treating epilepsy. Linden relieves tension and anxiety, aids sleep, calms restless and excitable children and reduces muscle tension. Linden blossom makes a good remedy for conditions associated with tension including headaches, period pains, colic and cramp. These relaxant effects combined with the beneficial action of the bioflavonoids on the arteries make linden blossom a useful remedy for reducing high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Linden blossom also relaxes the arteries of the heart, making it useful in the treatment of palpitations and coronary heart disease. Linden blossom is an excellent remedy for reducing fevers, particularly in children, and for clearing catarrhal congestion.
