Infusion of lime

The organic

Man, in his evolutionary and historical path that led him from being practically a monkey to what he is (that we are) still today, has gone from being an extraordinary fruit of the power of nature to wanting to fight it. In reality it is not a fight, both because nature obviously does not fight and because man would simply want to dominate and control it, but this cannot be done because it is nature that has created us and also all those means with which we would like to fight it. Recently, however, some groups of people have realized that not everything we artificially produce is good, on the contrary: we are talking about clothes (where we try to favor every natural and untreated fiber, such as cotton, linen, silk, wool and a few others), but above all food, where the “artificial” hand of man had really reached absurd levels. Part of this, which at times is a fashion, has also come to touch body care, both aesthetically and medically, turning the super effective creams and replacing them with very natural natural extracts, without the addition of even a dye, let alone derived active ingredients. All this, which is a true culture and a lifestyle, goes by the name of “organic”, better known to the general public and the media as “organic”: organic crops, organic agriculture, organic creams, organic food and much much else. let alone derived active ingredients.

The herbal teas of nature


A part of the organic culture that has really shown great effectiveness, combined with economy, so much so that it far exceeds artificially produced substances, is the world of herbal teas, extracts and infusions. All three classes of products just mentioned refer exclusively to the vegetal nature, that of plants and flowers, which are a mine of substances that are always beneficial for our body and mind. For example, everyone knows that there are very effective herbal teas to fight two big problems of our time, stress and constipation (or constipation); not only that, some even energizing herbal teas have been part of the culture for decades, already at the time of our grandparents, and we explicitly refer to tea, which is nothing more than an infusion of a particular plant containing caffeine, an energizing protein (which when contained in tea is called “theine”, but it is the same thing). Another natural herbal tea, this time not energizing but calming, is chamomile: it is extracted from various parts of the chamomile flower, very similar to a daisy and a gerbera, whose substances act as relaxants and are very effective on children in various situations, from stomach ache to restlessness that does not make them rest.

The infusion of linden

The lime tree is a herbaceous – shrubby plant that appears to be widespread in most of the European continent but not only, because it grows spontaneously also in the Americas and in much of Asia. What makes this simple plant famous is the infusion that is obtained with various parts of it (basically flower and leaf), with extraordinary effects. Let’s say first of all that the generic effect is of a calming type (just to contrast it with tea-like products), but the specific uses are very broad: antispasmodic, hypotensive, sedative, laxative and even expectorant. The fact is that like other plants belonging to the Malvaceae group, the linden contains proteins that act on the nervous centers of our body, relaxing them and thus helping both the psychological and physical phases. First of all, the linden infusion is a relaxing type of chamomile, to be taken in states of agitation, nervousness or just to relax before going to rest and try to do it at its best. These effects can also be used when nervousness and tension cause somatization, as we will now see in the next paragraph.

Infusion of lime: Somatizations and preparation

Somatization is the transfer of a psychological discomfort to one or more parts of the body, which begin to ache or otherwise malfunction. A classic example is the classic nervousness vomiting or anxiety palpitations: both of these phenomena are not dangerous (except if associated with other functional deficiencies or pathologies already present) for health, but they are annoying and evident symptoms of a profound suffering of everything. the organism. In these cases, nothing is better than a warm linden tea, prepared with the infusion method. Millet herbal tea producers collect the flowers and leaves of this plant in spring and early summer (until late June so to speak), then they leave them to dry slowly in the sun and in the air and then the whole is ground to produce a not too thin powder that will be placed in little filters not too different from those of the chamomile. These, immersed in boiling water and left to drain for a few minutes, will give color, flavor and above all effectiveness to the resulting herbal tea. If we are lucky enough to know and meet a linden plant we can collect the flowers and leaves ourselves, dry them and then immerse them in the pot of almost boiling water to let the effectiveness discharge, then filtering before consuming.
