Linden Flower (Tilia)
I like linden flower because it's excellent for detoxifying and purifying my liver, as it contains choleretic properties. It also works very well for chronic bronchial issues. Linden flowers are also very effective for digestive issues. As a tea, this medicinal flower has been used for centuries to help reduce hypertension and headaches. Linden flowers also have calming and sedative properties that can help prevent insomnia and produce a restful night’s sleep. This medicinal flower also has diaphoretic and fever reducing properties which makes it an excellent remedy for colds, flu, and respiratory infections.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use Linden flower for?
If I suffered with tension headaches or high blood pressure, linden flowers and leaves would be making their way into my herbal infusions. Linden flower is a soothing nervine that relaxes tension, and reduces blood pressure. If I was dealing with asthma, emphysema, COPD, gastritis, dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, or gall bladder problems—Linden flower would be making its way into my body.
If I was struggling with edema, water retention, bloating, or swelling, linden would be part of my healing protocol, as linden works as a natural diuretic. If I was experiencing anxiety, stress, irregular heartbeats, or indigestion, I would likely use this herb blended with other medicinal herbs such as meadowsweet and California poppy.
Mullein Leaf (Verbascum)
Mullein flowers and leaves contain powerful anti-bacterial and expectorant properties that have the ability to substantially remove phlegm from the lungs and mucous from the body. This makes it a highly effective remedy for those who suffer from bronchitis, (like I did). It's also very beneficial for those experiencing lung congestion, colds, flu, asthma, emphysema, whopping cough, or any other respiratory ailment. Mullein also contains anti-spasmodic properties which makes it helpful for reducing both menstrual and stomach cramps... Now, I may no longer suffer with these conditions, but needless to say, this medicinal herb will always be in my healing tool kit.
Historically, mullein was used as a treatment for tuberculosis as far back as the 16th century and some believed that if mullein was taken in the early stages of the disease, that it could bring about a full recovery. Mullein’s strong anti-viral abilities also make it a potent remedy for the flu, shingles viruses, herpes viruses, Epstein Barr, and Staph infections.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use mullein leaf for?
If I was dealing with digestive problems such as diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, hemorrhoids, and intestinal worms—I would bring mullein into my herbal infusions. If I suffered with joint pain or muscle pain, I would incorporate this medical herb into my herbal infusions. Mullein contains a compound called verbascoside, which is an anti-inflammatory and particularly useful in helping to ease joint and muscle pain. If I was a migraine sufferer, Mullein would be part of my healing protocol, as it’s known to be highly beneficial in providing migraine relief. If insomnia and anxiety were troubling me, I would use this healing herb in conjunction with California poppy and meadowsweet-- as mullein has natural sedative properties and has been used to help treat both of these conditions. Mullein oil (mullein extract in an olive oil base) is a highly effective remedy for ear infections and ear aches and can be safely used with children and adults alike.
