Lime flowers are associated with the myth of the nymph Philyra, who became immortal when the gods turned her into a lime tree (or linden tree), which has heart-shaped leaves! The blossoms of the tree can be made into a delicious sweet infusion with a chocolaty aroma that has a relaxing effect.The lime tree with its heart shaped flowers relaxes the body, improves the circulation and helps with digestive disorders. Its beneficial properties are due to active substances such as coumarin, quercetin, farnesol, flavonoids and volatile essential oils.
