Lindens have been known and loved the world over for their innumerable virtues since time immemorial. Omnipresent in myths and legends, it’s the tree of bonds and appeasement, so revered for its protection that it is planted near hospitals, churches, in village squares and school courtyards.
In the Middle Ages, lindens were planted near hospitals because they cleaned the air and brought calm. By royal order, they were then planted along paths and roads and their harvest was reserved for the hospices. Its ground bark was even worn as an amulet to protect its wearer, human or animal, from disease and injury. It is also the essence from Proust’s madeleine, memorable because it was dipped in a warm cup of calming linden infusion.

“Un tilleul qui embaume dans la fin du jour, c’est un ravissement qui s’imprime en nous de manière indélébile et, au creux de notre joie d’exister, trace un sillon de bonheur que la douceur d’un soir de juillet à elle seule ne saurait expliquer.“
