Let's analyze together the properties of some herbs that folk wisdom has as “medicinal” to help relieve minor ills.


By  Laura Imaz 

And I insist that they are   infusions, and not teas  because technically it does not contain parts of  camellia sinensis .


 Relaxing  and sleeping. Sedative of the nervous system

Helps those suffering from nervousness, stress and insomnia.

Prepare it in decoction, that is to boil for a few minutes, flowers and linden leaves, in the water all together! Strain and cool.

Drink the tea after meals, 2 or 3 cups a day.

Helps relieve symptoms, from those who suffer from nervousness


Antispasmodic, carminative and stomach sedative

This  plant  has always been used for a variety of conditions.

Antimicrobial properties and helps reduce fever are known.

Like almost all, I recommend you to prepare the tisane in decoction, if you use dehydrated herbs. If you find them fresh, you could infuse them, that is, pour boiling water over them.


There are so many varieties, that certainly the properties vary from one to another, but the general ones are: antiseptic, decongestant,  anti-influenza , antibacterial, analgesic.

Decongestant and antiseptic relieving common cold discomforts.

Analgesic, relieving headache by poor digestion.

Carminative, helping to expel gases caused by poor digestion.

Prepare it in decoction, if dehydrated, infused, if fresh.

Remember this data that I hope will help you.

Until the next infusion
