The healing effect of many Plants was already known to man before the Stone Age*).
Already at the beginning of human history Plants played an important role for humans, one could not go to the 'super'market like we do today and got everything they needed there.
He had to gather food, clothing and medicine in Nature, and he did !
And so he used the Plants for fibre production for ropes and clothing, for nutrition, for oil extraction for lamps and as food, as dye, as medicinal Herb or for psychoactive purposes.

This ancient, magical Herb is known for her healing properties especially for relieving cramp-like conditions, mainly of the smooth muscles.

But she is also a Plant of protection and Nature-essences.
The name 'Gänsefingerkraut' (literally - thus wrong translated to english 'Goose-Finger-Herb') is probably due to the fact that she could spread very well on goose pastures.
The Herb loves well fertilized soil and the geese fertilized these soils very naturally with their excrements.

The Herb also loves hard ground and the geese make this job wonderfully with their wide feet and love this Herb just as much as the peasant who uses Cinquefoil as a miracle cure for his animals - even with colic of the horses.
Silverweed helps very well with cramped menstrual problems.
You can produce an Essence with young girls that helps them to relieve their symptoms.
In the 15th Century, the Silverweed is mentioned by Johannes de Cuba in his Herbal books Herbarius and Gart der Gesundheit.

Cinquefoil as food
Cinquefoil is a versatile food and also a powerful remedy for cramps.
All parts of the Vitamin C-rich Silverweed are suitable as food.
Her delicate Leaves can be boiled in salt water until soft and then processed like spinach.
They have a rather mild taste and can therefore be mixed well with other Wild Herbs or vegetables.
They are also a good addition to salads or cream drinks.
The yellow Flowers can be used as edible decoration on a salad or vegetable dishes.
A Root vegetable can be prepared from the tasty Roots.
Grated raw, they are added to the salad.
It promotes the absorption of minerals and trace elements into the cell and should therefore be enjoyed together with Herbs such as Nettle [Urtica dioica, Urtica urens] or Coltsfoot [Tussilago farfara], especially in cases of calcium deficiency.

Stories and Myths
Cinquefoil is an ancient magical Plant.
It's connected to the creatures of Nature.
It was said that the Fairies and Elves liked to meet at the shiny silver Leaves to chat, celebrate and dance.
Cinquefoil is also an old protective and auxiliary Herb.
Like many other protective Herbs, bushes were hung in front of the house and yard to ward off unwelcome guests.
If one observes the Plant, one recognizes that it protects its leaves in rain around the yellow Flowers.
This kind of protection was also compared to the protective mantle of Mother Mary, the catholic successor of the teutonic-germanic Frigg (Saga), the celtic Brigid, the babylonian Ištar, the old-egyptian Isis, the old-greek Artemis, Demeter und Athene, the roman Diana, ... and the anatolian Kybele Goddesses.
So, Cinquefoil is one of the 'Marian' and Female Herbs.

In Folk Medicine, Silverweed was used to eliminate fever.
The Leaves were crushed, mixed with (then real, unrefined) salt and vinegar and then placed on the soles of the person suffering from fever with the help of an envelope.
For the treatment of calf cramps, in addition to internal application, the Leaves can be placed slightly squashed directly on the affected area.

properties and mode of action
costive at diarrhea

healing purposes
sore throats
gum inflammation and bleeding and the oral mucosa
diarrhea - cramps in the gastrointestinal tract
severe back pain
strong muscles and calf cramps
menstruational complaints
forms of diarrheal disease

She is native throughout the temperate Northern Hemisphere.
We find her in dry and sunny locations with nutrient-rich, well-fertilised soil.
This is why she often occurs at field edges or pastures.
Once she has settled in the garden, usually becomes a faithful companion.
collection tips
The Leaves and Roots of the Cinquefoil can be collected practically all Year round, but from May to August is the best Time.
Especially used are Flowers and Leaves.
We recognize Cinquefoil on her silvery, slightly hairy Leaves.
It is a ground cover Plant and grows only about 30cm in height.

Tannins, flavonoids, tannins, bitter substances, tormentol, calcium and Vitamin C

recipes for healing application
Cinquefoil milk decoction - against cramps
When the fresh or dried cabbage is boiled in milk, this drink helps very well with cramps of all kinds.

Tea for menstrual cramps
Together with Yarrowweed [Achillea millefolium], Goose Cinquefoil can be blended into a good menstrual Tea, which is particularly helpful for painful cramps.

cramp - pillow
Put the dried Herb into a pillow, warm it dry (in the oven) and place it on the belly in case of painful tree cramps.

Silverweed Tincture
An alcoholic extract of Silverweed helps very well with menstrual complaints and other ailments associated with spasmodic pain.

Wound - Herbal Milk
The most common way of preparing Cinquefoil in our ancestors, the ancient Teutons, was probably Herbal milk.
Boil fresh Silverweed in milk and leave to stand for a few minutes.
Milk is used because it contains fat and thus makes the fat-soluble ingredients more accessible to us.
In wounds, this milk was also drunk to protect against tetanus and blood poisoning and the Herb, boiled in milk was placed on the wound.

Baby Belly Oil
Crush 1 teaspoon each of Caraway [Carum carvi], Anise [Pimpinella anisum] and Fennel seeds [semen Foeniculum vulgare] and place in a lockable glass jar.
Add about a handful of slightly dried, finely chopped Cinquefoil and add 200 ml organic sweet Almond oil.
Leave this mixture to stand for about three Weeks.
Remove the Seeds and Plant parts and fill them into brown glass bottles.
For flatulence, warm the oil slightly and massage the baby's stomach.

Massage Oil for menstrual problems
Soak Mugwort [Artemisia vulgaris] and Silverweed equally in good oil and leave in the Sun for a few Weeks.
This oil helps girls very well when they massage it onto their stomach for menstrual problems.

Plants in the Wheel of the Year - July and August

Herbs and medicinal Plants in July and August are
Worm Fern, Club Moss, Foxglove, Fly Agaric, Thyme

The Wheel of The Year represents the Annual Cycle of the Seasons and their Midpoints.
It is traditionally associated with Heathendom but has its origins stretch very far back into Celtic Society where the coming and going of the Seasons, the shortening and lengthening of Daylight hours impacted strongly on this agricultural race.

Mythology and Legends from the Realm of Plants
In popular belief, many Flowers are closely related to the Elves.
In the old Legends you hear again and again that the Elves have control over certain Plants.
Elves also have their favorite Flowers and all kinds of Stories entwine around the interplay, because Nature was still a World full of Magic at that Time and the borders between the Realm of  Elfin and the World of Humans were fluent.

Since the Fairies and natural beings are so closely associated with the Plant Kingdom, it is not surprising that people assumed that Flowers and Trees were under the protection of the small people.
Those who wanted to find out more about the Nature-creatures stuck to the old Legends and searched for a four-Leaf Clover.
Because, it is said, the four-Leaf Clover brings us luck and leads us to the Elves...


Worm Fern (Driopteris filix-mas) Family of Ferns - Aspidiaceae [family Dryopteridaceae, incl. Aspidiaceae] (Wood Fern family), Basket Fern, Knotty Brake, Sweet Brake, Shield Fern, Bear's-Paw Root, Male Woodfern, Wurmfarn

Ferns are one of the oldest Plants in the World.
They've been around for 400 million Years.
In the Coal Age (carbon) there were even Ferns as big as Trees.
Together with the Lycopods (Club Moss) [Lycopodium] [family Lycopodiaceae] and Horsetail Plants [genus Equisetum], the deposits of these Plants formed the important basis for our hard coal today.
Today we enjoy the Ferns especially when we walk through the Forest.

They shine in wonderful green and especially in Spring, when they unroll in a Spiral, they exert a special magic on us.
The most common is the Worm Fern, which occurs most frequently and is still known today for his healing power in forms of worm disease and other intestine parasites.

History and Myths
Ferns have always been revered as very mystical, magical Plants.
They were considered sacred Plants used for various magical purposes and related to the Elves.
For a long Time men could not explain the reproduction of the Fern.
Propagation by Spores was unknown.
I like to call the Fern a 'Witch's' Herb.
There are various reasons why people regarded Ferns as magical Herbs.
On the one hand, the Spiral form of the young Herb is probably responsible for this.
The symbol of the Spiral is a very old, very meaningful allegory.
It stands for continuous growth, for further development at an ever higher level, but also for the perpetual Cycle of Life.
The Spiral has always been an allegory of Life and happiness.
And so the Fern that unrolls in a Spiral was also regarded as a Life-supporting and Herb of Luck.
Special meaning is due to the Fern spores, which sit on the underside of the Fern Fronds and contain goldish-yellow dust.
They contain the secret of the Fern's reproduction.
After all, like other Plants, the Fern does not form any Flowers or Seeds.
This circumstance was also very 'enchanting' for the former man.
In any case, these Fern Spores were considered particularly magical.
The so-called Wish-Seeds (Fern Spores) were even attributed miraculous properties:
Among other things, the Spores were to help in the search for hidden treasures and to give the power of 40 men.
With Fern Seeds in their pockets, everyone became rich and happy.
Furthermore, with the help of Fern Seeds one could understand the animals and even become invisible, as it is described in the following Story:

From the rich treasure of Legends of Father Willibald Leeb
On Midsummer Night at Midnight from eleven to twelve the Fern Seeds are coming up, bloom and fall.
It has the property that it can make you invisible.
Once a man drove home with the oxen through the Forest at this time when the Fern Seed fell, and such a Seed of the Fern fell into his shoe.
Now that he got home, his people must have seen the cart, but they didn't see him.
Only when he had taken off his shoes inside the parlor did they see him again, but the shoes where the seed was inside remained invisible.
If you walk around in the long, white flowering Fern on St. John's Night (June, 24th) and such a Fern seed falls into your shoes, you are invisible'.

According to popular belief, the Fern protects from the evil eye and the Root of the male Fern was supposedly one of the ingredients of Love potions.
It is not surprising that Fairies feel particularly well between the majestic Fronds of these mysterious Plants.
Therefore, in ancient England, the well-intentioned advice was given to reveal no secrets near Ferns.
The Elves could finally retell these ...

healing purposes
anti-parasitic - for worm disease (ancylostomiasis)
Caution, the Fern is poisonous, under no circumstances should you dose it yourself, do not intake male Fern if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, or anemic, or if you have a liver or intestinal disorder

external (Tincture from the Root)
back pains
neuralgic pains

The Fern is widespread throughout Europe, also in West to Central Asia as far as North America and Northwest Africa.
He grows most frequently in shady, dense Forests, on humus-rich soils.
You can find the Worm Fern up to altitudes of about 2600 m.
Depending on the location, the perennial Worm Fern is 100 to 140 cm high.

collection tips
The Leaves of the Fern are collected from June to September.
The Root is excavated in August or September.

filmaron - an amorphous acid
filicic acid
ethereal oils

recipes for healing application
Fern Root Tincture
collect the Root of the Fern on an August or September Day.
Clean well and cut into small pieces.
Pour into a closable container and pour over with high-proof alcohol.
About half a liter to three-quarters of alcohol is added to a middle - size Root.
The glass is closed and should remain standing for about 4 Weeks.
The Tincture can then be strained and stored in a dark bottle.
This Tincture is used to treat back pain, sciatica, headaches or rheumatic complaints.

warm compresses also work very well
The Tincture is put into warm Water and a linen cloth is soaked in it.
You put this linen cloth on the aching place and wrap it with a firm cotton cloth or a towel.

Club Moss [Lycopodium] (Lycopodium clavatum), (a family of Lycopodiaceae), Ground Pine, Groundcedar, Gout Moss, Devil's Weed, Clubbear Lobes, Stag's-Horn Clubmoss,  Scapefoot, Witchweed, Bärlapp
Club Moss is one of the true 'Witch' Herbs.
Because his fine Pollen has always been used in Shamanic Cultures as 'Witch' Dust, which was thrown into the Fire for Rituals and could develop its pyrotechnical effects (bangs, explosions, strong smoke development).
Club Moss has been an appreciated medicinal Plant since the Middle Ages.
Today it has almost been forgotten and is more commonly used in Homeopathy.
I know a wonderful Lycopod place, which I sometimes visit to meditate and connect with the old Plant power.
I like these soft yet strong Plant cushions.

Stories and Myths
Club Moss has been regarded from the earliest times as a very effective Plant that fends off magic.
For example, he was nailed to stable doors to ward off evil spirits.
In addition, wreaths were woven from it, which were then hung over the beds as 'restlessness'.
In the bed rooms there was a constant breeze - if the Lycopod wreath stood still, one thought that an ogre had entered the room.
The shepherds also used the Club Moss during their forays.
They put the Plant in their hat and were protected against evil spells.
Club Moss was considered a very powerful protective Plant.

properties and effect

healing purposes
helps in many forms of skin disease - Club Moss powder can heal even the most serious injuries in a short time
for cleaning injuries
leg cramps

against all urinary system disorders
gout and rheumatism
constipation and hemorrhoids
liver disease - Maria Treben writes that a man who suffered from cirrhosis in the last stage, already abandoned by orthodox medicine, drank Club Moss Tea and after a short time almost completely lost his severe respiratory problems associated with liver disease.
liver cancer, cirrhosis

image by Encyclopaedia Britannica

The Plants are mainly native to tropical mountains but also common in northern Forests in both hemispheres.
Lycopods are evergreen Herbage with needlelike or scalelike Leaves and, often, conelike clusters of small Leaves, each with a kidney-shaped spore capsule at its base.
Generally, Club Moss grows in dry coniferous Forests, especially in northern parts of the Forest, or on the edge of the Forest.
It is more likely to be found at higher altitudes, around 800 meters above sea level.
Club Moss is a radium-containing medicinal Plant and can be easily distinguished from the other Moss species by its ropy Tendrils and the yellow Pollen of his Cobs.

collection tips - please observe Nature Conservation
The whole Herb can be collected from May to September.
The fine Spore dust is collected in August and September.
To obtain the Spores, the Fruit spikes are collected.
These are first left to dry in the Sun.
Then they are knocked out on a base with the Spores falling out.
These Spores are the well-known 'Witch' flour, which is used for wound-healing, but also for these 'magical' effects during burning.
Remember, Club Moss can easily be confused with other, sometimes extremely poisonous Plants.
Club Moss needs should therefore be covered in a pharmacy or, at an experienced Herbalist.

Foxglove [Digitalis purpurea] (genus Digitalis), (Family of the Pheasant - Scrophulariaceae) sometimes called Red Thimble, Red Foxglove, Fingerhut
The Foxglove is probably one of the strongest domestic poisonous Plants.
Even very small amounts can be deadly.
That's why I have to warn at the Foxglove right at the beginning.
He must never be collected and used by oneself.
I recommend to visit and to encounter the Foxglove in Nature with the highest respect.

It is a natural wonder that there are any such powerful Plants.
Reconsidering that even 2 Leaves of this Plant can be fatal to humans, makes me generally thoughtful.
What our wonderful Nature spawns and how careless we sometimes deal with it.
As beautiful as the Foxglove looks, he can be so dangerous if is not used mindfully.

Stories and Myths
In various English and Irish Legends it is said that Foxglove is the headdress of the Fairies and the Elf People.
So it was believed that the Elves use the beautiful pink Flowers with their red dots as headgear and hats.
In England and Ireland, the Foxglove is also called 'Purple Foxglove'.
It was said that the Elves learned the foxes to ring the Flower bells to warn each other of the hunters.
There should also have been evil Fairies who gave the foxes Foxglove Flowers on their paws, so that they could quietly do mischief in the chicken coops.
In Ireland, the Foxglove was carried to guard against the evil eye in the old Days.

The purple-red Foxglove also finds his home in places where the Elves feel comfortable: so he likes to grow in Forests along paths and glades.
His color is pink with purple and shows his Flower bells from June to August and can grow up to 150cm high.

'... your purple dress shows who you are:
You'd not hide yourself, so shining bright
and show us the way to the Elves very fast'.

- Flower poem by Anke Junginger

Already since the 5th Century, the Foxglove is known in Ireland.
He was then called 'Fairie's Herb' and was used to heal 'bewitched' children, which often ended in death.
The knowledge of the healing effect was then spread by Irish monks across Scotland and England throughout central Europe.
Furthermore, a collection of recipes is known from the 5th Century, in which it was described that the Red Thimble is recommended for tumors of the abdomen, for ulcers, headaches, abscesses and paralysis.
Later, the English physician William Withering found out that the Foxglove can help very well with Heart failure.
Modern digitalis therapy goes back to him, because in 1786 he announced in a report how successfully the dropsy (edema), in connection with Heart failure can be treated by digitalis.

properties and effect
In Folk medicine, the Foxglove has been used mainly against Heart failure.
The active ingredient digitoxin increases the performance of the Heart.
The Heart then beats slower and at the same time gets an increased pumping power.

Throughout Europe and Asia.
Foxglove grows mainly on clearcuts, on stony Forest slopes and on lime-deficient soils.

in Forest clearings he appears plentiful.
Among other reasons, Foxglove has spread so much because he became a popular garden Plant.
Especially gardeners and garden friends should note that in gardens where toddlers live, no highly toxic Plants should be planted.

collection tips and usage
Since the Plant is highly toxic, I advise against any form of collection and use.



Fly Agaric [Amanita muscaria] from the genus Amanita, Fliegenpilz
Mushrooms are creatures as they belong to organic living Nature.
But Mushrooms are neither Plants nor are they animals or insects.
They form, in the biological sense, a very own kingdom.
Mushrooms seem to us as if they were site-bound, always in the same place where we found them last Year.
That is not so.
Mushrooms hiking.

In Popular Belief and Folk Tradition, Mushrooms are usually treated like Plants, so they should also find their worthy place herein.

We all love and fear the beautiful red Fly Agaric with its white spots since childhood.
He appears in many Fairy Tales, in many gardens he is an ornament and on New Year's Eve we often get a Fly Agaric as a lucky symbol.

But of course we also know the warnings of our parents: 'You can not collect or eat the Fly Agaric, it is very poisonous'.
Even today, I can well remember how skeptical my Mother has always looked at and processed the 'Mushrooms' collected by Papa.
Always in the fear that even a poisonous Mushroom could end up on the Family table.
Of course it is almost impossible to confuse with the Fly Agaric - so striking is his red color, with the white dots on it.
The energy of the Fly Agaric is more masculine, earthy.

Stories and Myths
In many Cultures the Fly Agaric was and is used as an intoxicant.
West Siberian Shamans like to use the Mushroom for his ecstasy-inducing properties and as a means of travel to immerse themselves in the Otherworld.
In some peoples, the Fly Agaric is considered materialized Divine flesh.
The priests of the Maya also used the Mushroom as an intoxicant to obtain visions from the Gods.
Also the intoxication 'Soma', which goes back to the Indian Vedas, is said to have contained the Fungus.
When consumed, you merge with the Spiritual World.
The Amarita Muscaria, so the Latin name, is a hallucinogen and as such the oldest drug of Mankind.
The knowledge of the intoxicating effect of the Fly Agaric is estimated to be more than 4.000 Years - which has given the revered and at the same time despised Fungus countless Legends.
Probably the lucky symbol Fly Agaric goes back to the experience of happiness in the intoxication.
The effect of the Fly Agaric can be described in such a way that one sees big things small and small things seem big.
Attentive readers of 'Alice in Wonderland' will learn more about the hallucinogenic effects of the Fungus.
Depending on which side of the Mushroom Alice breaks down a piece, she gets bigger or smaller.
Fly Agaric was also always considered a habitation of Dwarfs and Forest Creatures.
Especially Dwarfs like to hide under the red caps of Fly Agarics.
Because this has been the case for thousands of Years, the Dwarfs (garden gnomes) who dwell among the people are wearing red pointed caps.
Also many legends of the Germanic refer to a deep veneration of the Fly Agaric.
It is reported that Wotan, the Germanic God of ecstasy and knowledge is responsible for the genesis of Fly Agaric.
According to Legend, Wotan rides through the clouds at the Winter Solstice.
Wherever the drivel of his horse falls on the ground, Fly Agaric Mushrooms sprout from the ground exactly nine months later in Autumn.
By the way, Fly Agarics were considered elf tables or chairs.

The Fly Agaric - opener of the perception portal
Smudging with Fly Agaric
Among other things I use the (dried) Fly Agaric in moderation and very consciously in Trance Incenses, sometimes as Ritual Incense, but then only in Nature, not indoors.
In Shamanic Cultures, tobacco was smudged together with Fly Agaric.

The Fly Agaric is also the main ingredient of Witch's Flight Ointments:
They consist of Plant and Mushroom extracts, which are thickened and mixed with fat.
They are preferably applied to areas of the skin where absorption into the body through the skin is particularly effective.

The Fly Agaric is used homeopathically (and spagyric) for considerable neurological disorders such as MS, epilepsy, paralysis and delirium.

Fly Agaric poisoning
The concentration of active ingredients in the Fungi varies considerably (up to 100 times) depending on site and environmental conditions.
Fly Agaric poisoning initially manifests itself in symptoms similar to those of severe drunkenness:
However, there are also hallucinations, increased acoustic stimuli, changing sleep-wake phases, delirium, visions, synaesthesia (color hearing).
According to these symptoms, the poisoning usually leads to a deep unconsciousness or deep sleep with a possible duration of 10-15 hours, from which the affected persons usually wakes up without remembering what happened.

Since no deaths from untreated poisoning are documented, the risk of dying from contraindicated therapy is higher than from the Fungus itself.
If it is really necessary to give an antidote, then Physostigmine - the antidote to Hyoscyamine and Muscimol - is appropriate.

The nausea that can occur at the beginning after eating Fly Agaric is part of a physical cleansing process, vomiting is a sign of physical-mental cleansing, so do not panic if a Fly Agaric should have slipped down once, because panic intensifies the symptoms and prevents a purposeful and professional possible cure.

In any case, prior you play unaccompanied with the idea, trying Fly Agaric, I advise you to get to know the Fly Agaric VERY well !
To have really shamanic experiences with this Fungus, one should know oneself really very well !
Otherwise it could be more of a trip to demons and/or horror !

Image by

The Fly Agaric is found in Northern Europe, North America and North Asia.
Very often we find him in coniferous Forests or at the edge of the Forest.
The Fly Agaric likes to seek the proximity of Birches [genus Betula] less often also with Spruces [genus Picea] and forms a mycorrhiza partnership with them.
The Fly Agaric prefers acid soils, so we often find him in granitic territory.
From July to October he can be found on acid soils - often in the company of Porcini [Boletus edulis] Mushrooms, which have similar location preferences.

Ibotenic acid - this disintegrates into muscimol when dried, which causes the psychotropic properties of the fungus
muscarin - gives great physical strength and endurance - but it also paralyzes the nerves.
bufotenin- is a psychedelically active hallucinogenic tryptamine alkaloid

Once again - don't worry about fatal poisoning - there is not a single described death by toadstool poisoning caused by Fly Agaric.

'All things are poison, and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing not poison'.

- Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Paracelsus) in Septem Defensiones 1538 Works Volume II, Darmstadt 1965

Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) - the breath of the Gods
Plant Family Lamiaceae, [Lamiaceae]
Thyme is an important medicinal Herb in severe forms of respiratory disease.

Thyme acts
reassuring (comforting)
Its germicidal and antispasmodic properties are especially effective for convulsive cough and deep-seated bronchitis.
Thyme is just a really good cough Herb.

I use it as Tea, as a cough Balm, as an addition to the bath Water or also very much as an essential oil.
With that I massaged my feet again and again (of course mixed with a good carrier oil like the quickly absorbed Sesame [(oleum) Sesamum indicum] oil) or I dripped a few drops of the oil onto the pillow or put it in an aroma lamp.
Thyme oil from Phytopharma can even be taken internally.
I did this in my Lyme disease in 2010.
Put a drop of essential Thyme oil daily on a small piece of bread and eat.
Is terribly gruesome - but helps – however, internally the Root of the Wild Teasel (more likely known as Fuller's Teasel) [Dipsacus fullonum] as a Tincture for several Months, is proved acting more profoundly and can also be used as a preventive measure against Lyme disease.

I have even smudged the house with Thyme over and over again, because even as an incense Plant, Thyme gives us valuable help.
On the one hand, it cleans the Air by killing viruses and bacteria, but also subtly frees from all negative energies.
On the other hand, Thyme acts as a smudging Herb strengthening and invigorating.
He gives new courage and confidence, which one can use well, if one is sick.
I think that Thyme, no matter in what form, is always very positive.
Thyme is a Plant that accompanies us especially well during the cold period.
He is currently growing in my garden and this alone is assurance enough for me to use Thyme and brew my Tea daily from the fresh Plant.
It is also possible now to buy a Thyme Plant, which serves as a houseplant over the Winter, so you have the healing properties of this fresh Herb constantly available.
Thyme is a Mediterranean Herb and as such is not native to us - i.e. central Europe, likes summer-hot climate.
The term 'thymus' comes from the Greek word thymos = Life Force and thus symbolizes strength and power.
Thyme is also an aphrodisiac, a bath with it cheers up lovers.
Wild growing, we find the Field Thyme (also known as Quendel or Creeping Thyme) [Thymus serpyllum], which likes to grow on dry grassland and now partly blooms.

I love Thyme because on the one hand it is a very tasty Herb, smells 'awakening' and on the other hand it has such a great healing effect that it is an almost indispensable companion over the Winter Months.
Thyme relieves respiratory ailments because it promotes expectoration, is mucolytic and anticonvulsant.
In addition, it inhibits viruses, bacteria, fungi and other germs in their growth.
Drinking Thyme Tea or Thyme Syrup regularly strengthens our body's defenses.

Stories and Myths
Similar to the Oregano [Origanum vulgare], the Thyme is a significant and very strong protective Herb.
Thyme protects against lightning, storms and even the 'devil'.
There are many Stories where 'devil' approaches a girl or a virgin and can not a moment too soon be stopped by a Thyme Plant.
Thyme was also used for the milk magic.
The Plants collected at the Summer Solstice were boiled and the resulting decoction was used to wash the udders of the cattle, so that the milk flows abundantly and the animals remain healthy all Year round.
The hens were put the Herb in their breeding grounds, so they were well protected and laid enough eggs.
It was also very popular with the Thyme smudged.
Protective Fumigation was carried out and in turn stables and sickbeds were fumigated to free from viruses, but also from bad energies.
The great protective effect of Thyme was also used in the Middle Ages, where Women sutured Thyme into their men's robes, so that they were well protected during the battles and raids.
The Roman legionnaires took baths with Thyme before a battle to give them strength and courage.
Like the Oregano, Thyme was also known for giving back a lot of Life and happiness to melancholy and sad people.

all Plant parts contain essential oils, as well as bitter substances and tannins

Thyme in the kitchen - a classic
In the kitchen, whole branches are used for garnishing or chopped leaves for roasts, marinades, herb bread and vegetables.
Who thinks whole Branches are exaggerated, can also take some Leaves - enough !

Thyme as a Fumigating Plant
gives self-confidence
makes brave, strong and confident
dissolves fears
gives protection when we feel discouraged, lonely and abandoned
is good for blessing and purifying rooms
strong protection against all negative influences
let us define well
cleans and disinfects the Air
strengthens our resistance and protects against illness
strengthens the sensual feminine, aphrodisiac
let us perceive inner abundance/wealth

Thyme clears the lungs, clears the airways, encourages you to breathe deeper and yet quieter, to widen your lungs, to open your lungs, to get more air, oxygen and space, to expand and to flow more energy in; a deeper breathing arises, you absorb more oxygen and energy; Through the deepening breathing more suppressed and repressed feelings rise.
Blocked and repressed memories are released in the lungs, repressed memories are released and can re-enter consciousness; repressed memories are 'released' through the lungs and breathing, and can be disengaged from the lungs.
- to remove slag from the lungs, to increase the expectoration
- feeling unable to breathe, having shortness of breath, something left me breathless (... is taking my breath away), I can not get enough air (I can't breathe), I think I'm suffocating, I'm breathing hard, (I feel constricted and restricted ...)
- when accumulated memories, 'slags' and 'dirt' in the lungs were collected.
- with restrained grief and pain in the lungs (when energy is withhold in the lungs); unlived mourning, unlamented tears, emotional pain and energy trapped in the lungs.

Thyme as a medicinal Herb
recipe for a cough Balm
100ml native, virgin, organic Olive oil, 50 gr. fresh Thyme, 10 gr. beeswax, essential, pure Thyme oil.
Collect the Thyme on a dry Day (or use dried Thyme) and warm in very good Olive oil.
The mixture should not cook, just 'simmer'.
Leave the Thyme oil mixture on the oven for about half an hour.
Then it has to cool overnight.
The next Day it is heated again.
The Plant parts are sieved and the beeswax added.
Once the wax has dissolved, you can put the Balm in small cans.
Three drops of high-quality, essential Thyme oil are added per 50 ml of Balm.
This is a very beneficial cough Balm which can be massaged onto the chest and thereby relieve persistent cough.

Thyme Wine
A handful of fresh Thyme Herb is put into a liter of white wine and left for 7 Days.
Then the Plant parts are strained and bottled in a dark bottle.
Every Day drunk a glass of liqueur is strengthening, calming and invigorating your immune system.
This wine can also lighten the mood a little bit.

Thyme Ointment
Put fresh, lightly dried Thyme in a good carrier oil and leave for at least four weeks in a sunny, not too warm place.
After four Weeks, this oil macerate is ready and can either be used as pure oil, or boiled with beeswax to a healing Ointment.
Thyme Oil can be used as a cough and breast Balm, but also as a massage oil for musculoskeletal disorders.
It appeals slightly warm, however.

Thyme Syrup
Two handfuls of fresh Thyme Herb, along with half a pound of wholesome sugar (or real bee honey), are added to three quarters of a liter of Water.
The mixture is warmed slowly and allowed to simmer for one hour.
You can let the syrup cool overnight.
The next Day is reheated and after a short simmering phase the Plant parts are strained and bottled the syrup.
This syrup can be used as a cough syrup, also be used to brighten the soul, or to strengthen the immune system.

Thyme cold Bath
Fresh Thyme Herb is mortared and mixed in a ratio of 1: 5 with (unrefined) natural Salt.
Leave this bath Salt for a few weeks and use it as a cold or strengthening bath.

Mrs Tilia speaks

In the course of Time, Stories and Legends have been written about our Folk Tree Linde in galore; much of what is said allows a look at erstwhile Cultures and their ways, their meaning of Life, their Traditions, their Folklore.

Perhaps the engagement with our Predecessors as well as previous civilizations may inspire us modern and so forward-oriented people to recognize the meaning and origin of our thinking, acting, even Life itself and... make some contemplation possible ?
Mrs Tilia is in any case a 'witness of Time' - and its constant change - and invites her human siblings to listen to her.
As a tour guide, she can tell us a lot of her wisdom from the 'lindian' consciousness and perspective and, who knows, provide a piece of advice for Life on our way...

With this Tree-portrait, I wish to express my utterance that we humans encounter Trees with mindfulness and reverence, as In the old Days again.
Brother (sister) Tree of the Plant-kingdom is a living being whose body is bound to a place, but whose Spirit is free and migrates.

I'd like you to invite to follow me, exploring in an in-depth journey the Linden and her so far mostly unrecognized wight.

parsifalrain, June 29                                                                                               

As an introduction, let us start our voyage with a book-excerpt, translated from German to English
'Living Trees and protective Spirits'

"The general view that the Tree is inhabited by a Spirit being whose Life is bound to that of his birth Tree, which dwells within it, but can also sometimes leave it in order to wander freely in its environment in an ethereal form similar to humans or animals, is firmly rooted throughout the earth, regardless of era, Culture, religion, politics, philosophy or fashion.
This view is one way of dealing with other forms of Life.
Do you stop feeding your cat when you've been baptized?

While the Holy Groves dwindled under the influence of the owners of religious and secular power, individual Trees or even smaller groups retained the status of Free Trees for a long Time, which should not be lumbered.

No one was allowed to harm such in any way.
Practical reasons for this increased - many Oaks and Beeches, for example, were indispensable for fattening pigs; Trees marking borders were also important (death penalty in medieval Switzerland for felling border Firs) - but other Trees, such as Yews or family Lime Trees, were simply 'untouchable' for older reasons that were not questioned.
'For those who live in Tree do not want to be felled', the Swedes said.

In Finland in the 19th Century, the Oak was called 'God's Tree' and Birch and Rowan were also kept sacred and planted by the rural population near the house.
A report from 1624 mentions a Grove in Sweden which should have been planted by a giant virgin (Nature).
In it stood a special Oak, the Gylde-Oak, where 'in the old days' much should have 'haunted'.
Still everyone who passed by greeted the Tree with homage:
'Good morning, Gylde!', 'Good evening, Gylde'.
Everywhere people spoke to the Tree creatures, to the Elder Woman (Mrs Ellhorn, Mrs Holle), to the Alder Woman, or to the Ash Woman, to name but a few.

Before the felling, loggers asked the Tree for forgiveness.
The early warning should give the Dryad the opportunity to change to another, younger Tree.
Due to the coincidental naming of the Ashtree (Ash) and Ash Wednesday, the Swedes were able to preserve the old Customs for Ash by declaring it the Ash Wednesday Morning Ritual.
Before Sunrise, because then 'the Spirits are active', the Elders went out to pour Water over the Ash Roots.
All these examples are presented in reports of the 19th Century in their present form - they were still very much alive.

The connection between Tree Spirit and Wood was gradually seen as the relationship between human thinking and the body, although the Dryad sometimes leaves the Wood and takes a 'trip'.
In Denmark, the Elder Dryads were known to walk around at dusk and take a look through the windows on occasion.
While Danish pastors lamented in letters the meaning of the mater sambuci (Latin for 'Elder Mother'), a North German colleague told of his youth in 1703.
At that time no one would have dared to cut an Elderberry, and if they had to cut him down, they would say a prayer beforehand: 'Mrs Ellhorn, give me something of your wood, then I will give you something of mine too, when it grows in the Forest'.

This willingness to one Day give Life to the generous Nature reveals the ancient understanding of Life and Death as a huge Cycle.
No wonder that the church could hardly bear such behavior and made every effort to change the situation.
The incessant explanation that all Nature Spirits were 'evil' ('demons and devils') slowly showed effect, the powers of the Tree Spirit, originally regarded as benevolent, were increasingly interpreted negatively.
The attitude changed from 'we thank the Spirits for their Blessings' to' the Spirits harm us if we do not appease them'.
The formulas for tree prayers changed accordingly in the direction: 'Here I sacrifice to you, do us no harm!'
Now the church could rightly free people from the burden of their superstition''.

check here for the English edition: (?) The Spirit of Trees - Science, Symbiosis, and Inspiration


I'm often asked how to get closer to Nature and her beings best.
One path is the way of amazement and the opening of the senses to the beauty and wisdom of Nature.
And there are beings here that are most similar to humans - the Trees.

One 'speaks' to Nature - or elementary beings not in the literal sense, but grasps what they mean in a, hmmm 'super-verbally' conceptual space, so to speak on the level of ideas or pure concepts.
One must first learn through long practice to reach into this level and then translate those messages into our human language.
So, when I have a term at this higher level, then I look for the image that corresponds to it and then translate this image into the word term(s) of language.
These terms and ideas are absolutely concrete.
They also have something of logic, because many of the Nature entities have a tad of strictly logical.

Those who open themselves lovingly and with interest to Nature's creatures and connect with the beings who penetrate the Stones, Flowers, Trees and Animals, redeem the beings enchanted in Nature in a mysterious way through their interest.  
Whoever takes himself back and opens to his counterpart without his own intentions creates the space for the other being to be able to express himself.

Such conversations go on easier if I had something sour before because the sour has a waking gesture.
When you eat sour or bitter food, you wake up; (dried Juniper berries [acinum genus Juniperus] awaken - also the spirits).
Anyone who eats sweet food can consciously slip away a little.
Sweet things go in the direction of dreaminess, sourness and bitterness opens you so that the I can get through better.

For once we look behind the curtain of the physical world - so that we learn to appreciate anew the great service that enlivened Nature provides for us humans.

I hope that our journey with and about Mrs Tilia is an enrichment for you to understand the nature of the Lime Tree, the Trees par excellence, both in more detail and to reopen to Mother Nature.
And if on your next walk you no longer walk passively or unconcerned past the next Tree, but stop, look at her/him, open up and perhaps remember details of our journey together, then our Lime-Tree succeeded in building a small bridge between Nature beings and man.

Lime [genus Tilia], Limetree, Linden Tree (Family Lindenaceae or Tiliaceae) genetically overriding belonging to to the Mallow family [Malvaceae] (Angiosperme Plants)
common names
Linden, August Lime, Lime Tree, Bast Tree, Bast Wood Lime, Basswood, Hard Lime, Spring Lime, Summer Lime, Late Lime, Stone Lime, Forest Lime, Winter Linden, Linde

Mrs Tilia is not related to the citrus Fruit called 'Lime' [Citrus aurantifolia], family Rutaceae.

To get atuned, let us rest a little and listen to a melody played in an old English way by Jürgen Wagner
'Linden': ca. 3 Minutes

The Lime Tree is one of the most beautiful and popular deciduous Trees in Europe.
However, we no longer find her in the Woods, but in parks, on roadsides, on village squares and meadows.
She grows throughout most of the temperate Northern Hemisphere as Tree or Bush and in Asia and is hermaphroditic, having perfect Flowers with both male and female parts, pollinated by insects.

country lore (in case of thunderstorm)
Thou shalt abate Oak,
You should look for Beech -
If you just can't find Linden

Mrs Tilia agreed with me that without going into the more than 50 individual species worldwide, I would like to try to make the Cultural and Mythological depth of this Tree accessible to the gentle reader.

The Lime Tree has always been considered one of the most important Tree species in European Cultural History.
It has long been the favorite Tree of the people and is not a Tree of the 'arrived', the establishment, such as Oak or Ash.

'Where would a Lime Tree be in German lands - and certainly it is in others countries as well - under which there would not be a settee or next to which there would not be a chapel? The beauty of her structure, the flysheet of her shadow and the sociable humming in her branches invite'.

- Adalbert Stifter

Like all deciduous Tree species, the Lime Tree appears in geological history in the Cretaceous period 130 million Years ago and therefore outlasts human History by eons.

The Lime Tree has a very special significance for humans.
From the Forests, she was brought to the villages and cities where she could grow excellently as a single Tree.
This gave man a 'motherly' Tree personality, with Heart-shaped Leaves, sweet Blossom scent and expansive crown, which has a special attraction and gives a feeling of comfort.
(Although Trees of the same species like to live together 'in families' out of all kinds of' 'practical considerations', she is not particularly fond of the neighborhood with other Linden Trees).

Already in the early Days, the Celts surrounded their places of worship with Winter Lime Trees.
The importance of the Linden as a Tree of lovers can still be found today in many Folk Songs and Customs confirmed:

'where we gather neath' the Tilia Trees, at evening time' ...

... or in the Middle Ages Walther von der
wrote about Love under the Linden
video: by Dulamans Vröudenton from Salzburg/Austria (in english, deutsche Übersetzung von Mittelhochdeutsch hier)


'… and sweetly sang the nightingale' (tandaradei)

and Heinrich Heine said,

'Look at this Lime Leaf! You will find it - shaped like a Heart, - that's why the lovers - also preferably sit under Lime Trees'.

In the old German card game first mentioned in 1472, the Linden Leaf shows the free peasantry.
In the 16th Century, the physician Lonitzer wrote in his New Kreuterbuch:

'Linde has the name [from her] 'Limelike-ness'
(lime-) in the sense of 'soft' or soothing)

The Lime Tree or a Leaf of her is considered an icon of justice, Love, Peace and loyalty and has a very
special meaning in German-speaking countries as a sign for the formidable values Homeland and Family, as a place of Community.
Aside from that, she's a symbol of the free status of landowners and cattle breeders.
1852 there were decrees of the royal government of Upper Bavaria for the protection and replanting of Lime Trees.
Burial grounds and monuments were and are often shadowed by Linden Trees.
In 1991 an imperial Lime Tilia Pallidia was planted in the Thuringian town of Niederdorla, the topographical center of all of Germany, as a sign of German reunification.
Also in memory of the reunification an imperial Lime Tree was planted near the Reichstag on October 05, 1990.

Franz Schubert - Der Lindenbaum (Winterreise, D.911,5)


Further Linden were planted along the former inner-German border to commemorate the peaceful changes within the GDR.
Nature and environmentalists use her as symbols, such as BUND Nature Conservation in Bavaria, which was founded in 1913.
To cut down an old Lime Tree without good reason would probably still give rise to indignation today.  

'If we see riders halting under the Lime Tree, this would be a sign of Peace.
Because under the Lime Tree we tend to drink, dance, be happy, because Mrs Tilia is the Tree of Peace and Joy'.

- Martin Luther

The (Summer) - Lime is the Plant that, with her flowering, announces the Full Summer in the physiologically and biologically based 'Phenological Seasons'.
In many villages she can be found in the village square (if there is not already a shopping center replacing the Linden as the former meeting place for conversation and relaxation).
You are welcome to sit down here, she is also a wonderful shade provider.
As the original Tree of our formerly great Culture, the Lime tree is connected to Venus.
And Venus is Aphrodite.
The Indo-Germanic language root 'lentos' emphasizes - in contrast to the firm Oak with his enormous tap root - her special flexibility and elasticity, her feminine grace.
Lime Trees have a so-called Heart-root, which carefully embeds itself in the soil via several main roots.
What the Oak embodies in male symbolic power, the Lime shows on the other side:
She stands for femininity, sweetness, fertility, Summer, cheerfulness, beauty and Love.

A strong Earth energy emanates from Mrs Tilia, and it is no coincidence that the power of the Dragon has found its pictorial expression in the name Lindwurm (Lindworm).
With its pristine Dragon power it guards Mother Earth at the foot of the Lime Tree.

In the Eifel, the 'May-marriage' auctions for Maids took place under the Lime Trees at the (annual) parish fair (Kirchweih), where a man was able to buy the privilege of going to all Feasts with this Maid for a Year.
If it turned out during the Year that the Maid was not worthy of this award (no virginity!), the Linden was 'scrubbed'; that is, the lawn or the pavement around the trunk had to be renewed.

In Germanic Mythology, her heart-shaped Leaf is associated with the Goddess Freya, an allegory of Love and Fertility.
From the Freya Lime Tree, by the - forced catholization, this name was transformed to 'Marian Lime Tree', more to this below.

Who does not know the scent of Lime Blossom ?
A vivid impression of the beguiling effect comes during the Lime Blossom Season in June, when crowds of humming insects populate the nectar-rich Flowers of the Limes to form a cosmic body of sound.

'Nature is wasteful in the number of Flowers. A Lime Tree is full of them'.

Basswood, the Folk Tree
Social life took place around the village Tree.
In earlier times, court was held beneath Lime Trees.
The squabblers were - infatuated with the Lime Blossom fragrance - to reach out and join hands in the village Feast.
Some judgments ended with the final formula:

'Given under the Linden … !'

In some villages are still such courts and dance Linden (for weddings and other Festivals in the Wheel of the Year)
More here and here.

Markedly court Trees are called 'Femelinden'.
Meetings of the local councils were also held under their roof.
They took decisions, held elections, administered taxes and governed the people.
It was also the Tree of gathering and exchange of messages.

Many of the Linden Trees react very sensitively to car exhaust fumes and really suffer from air pollution, which is why nowadays some ancient Linden Trees have disappeared on village squares and crossroads.

Mrs Tilia can live for more than a thousand Years due to her special ability:
Although she become rotten at an early stage and cavities form inside, she forms inner Roots from the Treetop down that feed on the Tree's own decomposition products.
These inner Roots can become so thick that they in turn fill the cavity created by decay with wood mass and a new bark.
Thus an aging Lime tapers again.
And again, this is a sign of the Cycle of Life: Birth, Growth (Regeneration), Death.

This brings us to the healing properties and benefits for the people
Linden wood is soft, light and long fibrous with a fine structure.
Due to its softness and elasticity it is particularly suitable for carving and turnery and has been used since long for images of saints and altars.
It was used for making wooden shoes, bowls, spoons and other household appliances as well as for the soundboards of pianos and organs.
Due to its properties, it is excellently suited as carving wood and also has its main use there.
In our Forests but she is no longer planted because her wood does not achieve good prices.

'The Lime Tree radiates cordialness and warmth in her appearance'

Accordingly, the healing effect of her Flowers and Leaves, which can alleviate some pathological complaints'.

Lime bark can be used well for Smudging Ceremonies and also provides bast for tying and twining, clothing, bowstrings, beehives and saddlery.

The Bark of the Lime is rich in bast fibres, which can be easily removed in strips.
Since time immemorial, this woody shell has been placed in cold water, similar to flax production.
This allows pure bast to be separated, dried in the Sun and then processed.

please note:
Always consult a doctor before using healing remedies and read disclaimer at the end of my abstract.

Mrs Tilia is an outstanding Sunlight collector
Lime Blossom Tea and honey products as well as fragrance essences and cosmetics are extracted from this Tree.
Especially young Lime Leaves are mild, nutritious and tasty and can be used in salads.
One only has to consider that Lime Leaves suck liquid.
Older Leaves are no less valuable, but require more chewing work.
The Leaves of the Linden Tree were already known in antiquity as a medicine:
Hardly anything is as strongly underestimated as the positive properties of the Plant dye chlorophyll.
It contains Sunshine - Light energy: Biophotons that encourage the body in many Life-supporting processes.
They transfer high-quality Light energies from the Cosmos straightforwardly into cells and tissues of the body and sustainably promote cell respiration and cell metabolism.
Chlorophyll also significantly supports the precise function of the brains, the nervous, hormonal and cellular systems.
Wherever it is present, there is always cell-available, cell-permeable (and thus organically) iron and magnesium.
The stronger the colors, the more iron, the richer the green, the more magnesium.
As early as 1913, the chemist Richard Willstätter recognized that chlorophyll is able to build up living substances from dead matter with the help of the Sunlight stored in it.
He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1915 for his work in analyzing the molecular structure of chlorophyll.

'The Linden
The powerful chose the Oak,
The eagle, lions on top of that
The people planted a Lime Tree
They met there and had rest

People used to dance to some of the Festivities
Her roof sheltered all of the guests
Her scent awakened their Hearts
And has delighted Lovers
The village courts met there
And she was happy to be consulted
A Tree of Life was in the middle
Wasn't the Deity here with her?

She alleviated the needs of the sick
She stood by side of the sad
She protected house and farm, Family
With the lonely, she was à deux'
- Jürgen Wagner

The Lime represents a motherly, warm being.
She spreads her arms wide to receive the man in her bosom.
Mrs Tilia is a symbol of cordiality, security and nest warmth.
With these characteristics she has conquered the sympathy of the people since earliest Time.

Of all indigenous Tree species, the Linden Tree helps us to awaken the dormant Nature in us - and to take a path of healing due to her deep, parable-like collective memory of human beings.

It is not for nothing that the German word 'Linderung' (alleviation) is anchored in vocabulary.
In times of unrestrained overexploitation of Nature, she really offers us comfort and protection under her buzzing canopy of leaves:

'When we gather neath' the Tilia Trees'.
'No fairer Land
There is no land, near and far,
More beautiful than ours at this time
When we gather
Neath' the Tilia Trees
As night falls...'


How deeply Tilia is rooted in Folk Life is also shown by the large number of field- and Family names.
The Linden Tree gave her name to many towns, villages, streets (and restaurants) and also went into many coats of arms as an adjunct of bravery and victory, as well as into those of some German noble families.
About 1100 villages have their name in the German-speaking area: Lindau, Linden, Lindenwood or Lindenthal.
Linz is the Linden-grove, Leipzig comes from Lipkso and means Linden-site.
Linn near Brugg owes its name to a Centuries-old Tree that is still alive today.
The Celtic and Old French 'til' is the origin of place names in western Switzerland such as Tilliez, Montillez or Muntelier.
Lindner, Lindacher, Lindenfels, Lindenberg, Terlinden, Lindström are common surnames...
Even different names of girls remind of the Lime Tree: Gerlinde, Gieslinde, Sieglinde and many more.

In former times there were numerous avenues, which had existed on both sides with Tilia Trees, street names still point to it today:
'Unter den Linden' or 'Linden Avenue'.
With increasing road traffic, however, the population of Lime Trees declined sharply - they do not tolerate car and industrial exhaust fumes, and atrophy.

in Sweden, Families had their protection Trees.
The Linné, Lindelius and Tiliander Families derived their names from the same three-stemmed Lime Tree.
When the Lindelius ceased, one of the shafts dried up; after the last daughter of the famous botanist Linné had died childless, the second did not shoot out any more, and when the Tiliander family died out, the whole Tree passed away....
For the Nibelungen hero Siegfried, too, the Lime Tree was a Tree of fate: 'as Siegfried bathed invulnerably in the blood of the slain dragon, a Lime Leaf clung to his shoulder, preventing complete protection, and under a Lime Tree he died from the hand of the fierce Hagen'.

The botanical name is related to the Greek tilos, fiber.
The richness of bast fibres in the Bark is a speciality of the Lime Tree.
The pile dwellers once woven their clothes of linen fibres and Linden bast.
Lime bast porridge was used to ease (lindern) burns.

Today there are reinforced concrete-multi-purpose halls in the villages; in former Times there were Lime Trees.
The Village-Lime Tree (Dorflinde) is defined in Meyer's dictionary of conversation:
'The Summer Lime Tree, which often only blooms at the age of 15-30 Years, was the classic center of the villages, the meeting point in the place where people's social Life took place'.
In some places she was even converted into a 'dance hall' - the wide branches of the 'Dance Lime Tree' were formed - often over Decades - into horizontal wreaths of Branches.
Boards were laid over it, along with railings, ladders and supporting posts - and the outdoor dance hall was ready.

'It was already full around the Linden and everything was already dancing, how great'

wrote Goethe.

The Linden gave shelter from thunderstorms and evil spirits.
Forms of disease were transmitted to the Lime Tree (sympathetic Plant) i.e.:

'Gout flow, thou shalt stand, thou shalt go by, shall disappear, like the foliage of the Linden'.

An oath was sworn under Linden, where the court took place and where deliberations were held.
Many documents prove the old 'judicum sub Tilia', which was practiced until the end of the 18th Century.
It was believed that the pure Truth came to Light under the sacred Tree.

'Blood-Linden' bear witness to unfair convicts:
The legend of the Blood-Linde from Wiesbaden-Frauenstein/Germany
Near Wiesbaden stands a huge Linden Tree at the Frauenstein Castle, from which the Legend goes that once sadness took place in its place.
A young Lady loved a lad who was not coequal to her, and often met him strolling outside the castle in the evening, in a shady spot near the castle wall.
Then her hard and proud father perceived these meetings, was furious, surprised the lovers and slew the lover with his own hand.
The daughter broke a young Linden-Sprout, stuck it through the running blood of her lover in the ground and never again spoke a single word to her father.
Every Day she cried for her slain lover, but Linden's Sprout struck Roots and shoot and became a Tree, and as long as the grieving lover lived and cried, blood flowed from the Linden-Tree's branches as someone tore off a Leaf or Branch.
But no one did that anymore, for the people stood in awe, and so the Blood-Linde grew to a mighty height and thickness, and four men can barely embrace the Tree.
- Ludwig Bechstein - Deutsches Sagenbuch, Leipzig, Georg Wigand, 1853
(Today the age of the Lindentree is estimated by the Nature Conservation authority at 800 Years).

did you know that the Lime Tree is a Plant with play-value ?
When you're out and about with children in the great outdoors, you can engage them in simple games that we've played as children, pointing out the beauty of Nature in the most beautiful colors:
The smaller Winter Lime, one of the best bee pastures, offers good carving lumber; the Fruits of the larger
Summer Lime can be used as small 'helicopters'...
In both Lime Trees, the matt-green Leaves turn bright-yellow in Autumn.

The Germanic and Slavic peoples regarded the Linden next to the Oak as a sacred Tree whose wood was used for ritual cremation of the dead.
As said above, the Oak, however, has generally always been attributed to the authorities and was never ever the Tree that inspired Mankind.
In German-speaking countries this function was performed by the Linde.
People lived with her.

According to Sigmund Freud, in the dream interpretation (oneirocriticism), Lime stands for healing and as a place of strength to recharge one's batteries.

In Legends, Linden Trees often appear as a meeting place for the so-called 'Witches'.
In the course of Christianisation, the Freya Lime Tree became the Marian Lime Tree, to which pilgrimages also took place, where some 'Leaves possessing sacred power' were taken along.
The Lime Tree was considered in the Middle Ages as the holy Roman empire's bee pasture and stood under strict spell, because at that time honey was the only sweetener.
The wax was also used for altar candles, writing tablets or seals.
Even today, the catholic church demands beeswax for the sacrificial candles and the Lime Tree is an important beekeeping Plant for apiculturists.

My grandmother had a wall hanging in the veranda with the song 'Am Brunnen vor dem Tore' on it.
We used to sing it with her when we were kids.


The Linden Tree in the art of healing

'The Water burned from the Flower is highly praised against the falling addiction [epilepsia] of the young children: but if one wants this potion a little bit stronger one should add one third of peony Water (peony) [Paeonia officinalis]. It is also used otherwise against the stroke, dizziness and other cold behaviors of the brain. If the stroke has hit, take Lime Blossom Water and black cherry water (black wild cherry) [Prunus avium ssp. Avium], mix them together and drink one ounce each time (about 0.03 liters). This Water drunk, is good for the diseased intestines, is given by some also for the stomach. The Water of Lime Blossom exterminates the patches in the face'.

- recommended Tabernaemontanus (Jakob Dietrich) in 1625.



collecting tips
The Tree Blossoms for a few days between June and July, then everything must go quickly:
After harvesting or collecting - depending on whether it is your Tree or you are in the Wild - you dry the Flowers, until they take on a yellow-green color.
(Picking and quickly on the shade, laid out on a linen cloth, dry).
The mature, open Flowers exude an incredible fragrance and indicate that they should now be picked in just four Days.
The concentration of active ingredients is highest during this time.
Do not just collect the single Flower, but also the almost translucent Bract.
Only pick as much as you need for a Year, because the healthy ingredients volatilize on prolonged storage.
Since the Linden Flowers are very sensitive to Light and air, you should dry them quickly and keep them in dense and light-protected - or in dark glasses.
From the end of May you can pick their tender Leaves, from July their flowers and later, when the Seeds have turned brown, these too.

that's how the Linden Tree will help you
The diverse healing range of Linde is really impressive (mentioning just a few fields of operation)
rheumatism, lumbago and gout pain relieving
migraine and headache
stomach and abdominal pain
lowers blood pressure
soothing to cough
anti-inflammatory for sore throat
preventively to increase the immune defense
refreshing and against hot flashes during menopause

In Naturopathy, Lime Blossoms are used to prevent colds, are an important remedy for flu and fever; a Tea of Lime Blossom drives sweat, stimulates appetite, has a nerve-soothing, anxiolytic and -> therefore sleep-promoting effect, in rheumatism (the Lime can also help when conjuring – (invoke) the Tree in gout), lumbago, indigestion, as well as kidney and bladder stones.
Lime blossoms are also antispasmodic.

Lime Blossom Tea
A 'House Tea' from the Lime Blossom is prepared from granny's pharmacy, which can also be mixed with other Herbs.
The Lime Blossom Tea, which is popular with children and adults, tastes very mild and smells like the Flowers at the time of collection.
Add 10 g dried or fresh Lime Blossoms to boiling Water and leave to stand for 5 minutes.
Pour through a sieve in cups and sweeten with real bee-honey.
Drunk hot in Winter and cold in Summer, it is very refreshingly garnished with Peppermint Leaves [folium Mentha piperta].
If you double the amount of Flowers, it is a shvitz healing potion for colds.
The anti irritating-cough effect is due to the amount of mucilage contained in the Lime Blossoms.
It also contains high levels of essential oils, manganese, tannins, Vitamin C, Vitamin P (which is important for the energy balance in the body cells, it inhibits inflammation and detoxifies the body).

Caution: Long-term applications with Lime Blossom Tea (over 6 to 8 Weeks) should be avoided, as sensitive persons could react with nervous heart complaints.
Generally, no Tea preparation should be drunk for more than 6 to a maximum of 8 Weeks as it may lead to an accustoming effect.
It is therefore worth considering whether taking a Tea that has not achieved the desired result even after 6 Weeks is effective and whether another Tea preparation or other form of therapy would be appropriate.
However, in case of prolonged symptoms, I strongly recommend to consult an experienced physician, Homeopath or alternative practitioner in Naturopathy !

Lime Blossom Syrup
To do this, boil 840 g of brown sugar in 1.5 L of water.
Add 150 g organic honey and a handful of fresh lime blossom.
Allow the syrup to cool.
Add 2 slices of organic lemon and 30 g of citric acid (drugstore or pharmacy) and leave to soak in a cool, dark place covered for 5 days.
Then strain the syrup into dark bottles.
Closed tight, it lasts about ½ year in the fridge.

Lime Tincture
To make a Lime Blossom Tincture yourself, pour a double-grain or wine spirit over Lime Blossoms in a screw cap glass until all parts of the Plant are covered and leave the mixture closed for 2 to 6 Weeks.
Strain and pour into a dark bottle.
Take 10-50 drops of this Tincture once to three times daily.
If the Tincture is too concentrated for you, you can dilute it with Water.

a Tincture is a Herbal extract with the help of alcohol.
You can either use a commercial double grain with 40% vol or, slightly more expensive, buy 70% or even 90% alcohol in the pharmacy.
For cost reasons, I usually use the common double grain myself and I am very satisfied with it.
Such a self-made Tincture lasts for one Year without any problems, with cool storage much longer.
    Collect a glass full of Lime Blossoms.
    Pour a high-proof clear liquor (e.g. double grain or vodka) over it until everything is covered.
    Close the glass.
    Put it in a sunny, warm place
    Wait 10 Days to 6 Weeks (the longer it stands, the stronger the Tincture becomes)
    Filter the Tincture (e.g. with coffee filter).
    Pour it into a dark bottle.
    Label the bottle with content and date
    (Important: it is very easy to forget what is inside when there is no label on it).
You can then take 3 x 10-50 drops of the finished Tincture.
Or use the Tincture in ointments or gels.

external applications
Linden Tea or diluted Tincture can be used externally in the form of Compresses (Envelopes), Baths or Washes.
With this kind of application one can promote the healing of wounds.
Linde is also used externally against furuncles and other abscesses - Envelopes with Lime Blossom Tea can promote ripening.

Ablutions with Lime Blossom Tea
The facial wash with unsweetened, lukewarm Lime Blossom Tea is suitable for the treatment of inflammatory skin and helps to a rosy complexion.

a Bath with Lime Blossoms has a relaxing effect (boil the Flowers, strain, add the liquid to the Bath Water).
Suitable (also) for smudging mixed with Marigold [Calendula officinalis], Raspberry [Rubus idaeus] and Coltsfoot [Tussilago farfara].

Linden as a Life-facilitator
The simplest use is the addition of Lime Blossoms -and Seeds on bread or in salad.
You can also cut young Leaves into small pieces and use them in desserts such as quark and yoghurt or add them to your smoothie.
But her Flowers, Leaves, Seeds and Bark can do much more !

the Lime for inhalation
Inhalation with Lime Blossoms helps with colds, catarrh or a mild bronchitis.
For an optimal effect you can use the following mixture with other medicinal Herbs:
Mix 40 g Lime Blossoms, 30 g Camomile Blossoms [Matricaria chamomilla, syn.: Matricaria recutita], 15 g Sage Leaves [Salvia officinalis] and 15 g Thyme Herb [Thymus vulgaris].
Use three tablespoons each of this mixture and pour over 500 ml of hot, non boiling Water.
Used three times a Day, inhalation quickly provides relief.

Lime Blossom Oil ...
... is a mild care product for the treatment of inflammatory skin areas, sunburn, inflammations in the genital area and haemorrhoids.
Mix 1 handful of dried Lime Blossoms (and/or Seeds) in a dark colored glass jar with 2 deciliters of organic almond or native olive oil extra and place in the heat or simply in the Sun for 10 Days.
Then filter off and fill into sterile bottles.
If necessary, the inflamed skin or mucous membrane areas can be gently rubbed with this oil in the morning and evening.

Elixir of the Lime Tree
Each Tree has an individual vibration potential, similar to the radiance of ornamental Flowers and Wild Flowers.
Similar to the production of Bach Flower Essences, these subtle energies of the Trees can be impregnated in aqueous media.
Such incorporeal vibration essences are often a valuable help in case of pathological disorders and emotional crises of Humans.
They are used in therapy according to the homeopathic principle 'similar things are cured with similar things'.
This can positively influence emotional discomfort, disharmonious internal states and mood disorders in forms of illness.

The treated person returns to his inner center, feels more balanced and harmonious.
However, the prerequisite is the choice of the correct therapeutic oscillation pattern.
For this, the symbolic Tree characters must be analogized with the individual disposition of the human being.
Related to the Lime Tree, the Tree symbolizes friendly, calm, composed, gentle, yielding (well in the sense of flexibility), warm-hearted, well-disposed, accessible, diplomatic, sociable personalities with a congenial charisma.

In their open, tolerant and casual manner, however, they can often be deeply hurt and offended by today's dominant raw, selfish lifestyle of modern society.
A Linden Tree Elixir is recommended for the elimination of emotional complaints and disturbed well-being.
It has the power to bring back and harmonize the snubbed emotional levels.
From the Linden Tree Essence (available at Fortisana, Gütschstrasse 6, 6312 Steinhausen, Switzerland, Tel. 041 740 22 86) 5 drops are taken every 2nd Evening diluted in a little Water before going to bed for 4 Weeks or longer.
More information about the effect of Tree Elixirs can be found in the peerless but written so far only in German book by Doris and Sven Richter 'Der Geist in den Bäumen spricht...'
(name of the book translated 'The Spirit in the Trees speaks...', Joy-Edition, Steinhausen ISBN: 3952128910

300 Years she comes, 300 Years she stands, 300 Years she passes (vernacular)
A Tree veteran is the Wolframslinde in Ried, Lower Bavaria.
The poet Wolfram von Eschenbach (1170-1220) is said to have written his 'Parsifal' in her shadow.
Other today existing, listed (as a historic monument protected) Tree veterans stand as living witnesses of past times, big with fate.
Many have survived wars, forces of Nature, climatic episodes *) or Epidemics **) and are provided with appropriate wound marks and scratches.

the Linden literary
A literary and delicious recipe to 'find lost time' comes from Marcel Proust, who dipped the sound of a (petite) madeleine in Linden Flower Tea, which was key to the lost time of his childhood (-:

The Linden Tree is suitable for carving Hearts in her ... (which will surely hurt a bit) ... to let future generations know who planted the Tree (or as we manifested this wonderful Tree in our garden-paradise and that we really loved each other)

*) Climate epochs of the last 1.200 Years
a warm period from the 9th to the 11th Century, the Medieval Warm Period and the Medieval Climate Optimum (with multiple Harvests each Year)
a cool climate from the 14th to the 19th Century, the Little Ice Age, and
 again a slightly warmer phase in the 20th Century until about 1970. (watch the short video The Coming Ice Age - Climate Hysteria Circa 1978)

**) During the European plague pandemic from 1347 to 1353 following a sudden, unexpected Little Ice Age - as historians estimate, 25 million people lost their lives - a third of the population at that time - not counted Asia and Africa.

Thank you for accompanying Mrs Tilia and me in our ethnobotanical trip, she really enjoyed our journey.
It is up to you to regard Tilia as a natural wonder and turn to advantage what you may have experienced during the course of this excursion.

'Our whole world is traversed by countless natural, astral and spiritual beings.
These beings do not want to be ignored by man, but recognized and considered.
And they have a lot to tell!'

The Linden Tree by Parain on Scribd

'I find very reasonable the Celtic belief that the souls of our dearly departed are trapped in some inferior being, in an animal, a Plant, an inanimate object, indeed lost to us until the Day, which for some never arrives, when we find that we pass near the Tree, or come to possess the object which is their prison. Then they quiver, call us, and as soon as we have recognized them, the spell is broken. Freed by us, they have vanquished death and return to live with us'.

- Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
