Softly fragrant lime tree (or linden) flowers have been used to make an evening infusion since at least the 18th century. In the past, the bark tended to be used (also exploited for its textile fiber - lime bast), or even the root. A nervous sedative, linden helps reduce stress and promote sleep for most people. The nectar-rich flowers yield a honey that retains their scent.
The scent of the lime flower is a perfect accord that reveals all its magic from its green, spicy head note to its sweet orange heart and honey base. Rich in mucilage, it has refreshing, emollient and softening properties. It is ideal for delicate and irritated skin or skin weakened by harsh external factors.
