Linden Blossom hydrosol from artisan distillation in France of Tilia vulgaris flowers is the 'Mom' of hydrosols and a good choice for use with babies. Suzanne Catty writes that its synergy with Roman Chamomile is extraordinary.
Linden Blossom hydrosol is known for its calming effects on the nervous system and is one of the best hydrosols for use with dry eczema. Suzanne recommends combining with Yarrow, Witch Hazel, or both for psoriasis and eczema conditions where it soothes the skin with its anti-inflammatory effects. Interestingly she also writes that Linden Blossom hydrosol promotes lucid dream work and can help in achieving deep meditation. Beneficial Uses of Linden Blossom Organic Hydrosol:
