The perfume of the linden tree and the elder flowers drench the air. Linden is one of my favourite herbs collected this month, used for stress and anxiety; it usually starts flowering around the solstice, and it is in full bloom now:
Linden (Tilia spp.) Tea
2 tsp. fresh new flowers
1 cup boiling water
Put the flowers into a teapot and pour on the boiling water. Infuse for 5 minutes and strain. This is good to drink when you are stressed and need to wind down.
NB: Do not use over a period of more than four weeks. Do not take if you are on Lithium.
