The linden (or lime tree), “tilia” in Latin, is native to Europe and Caucasus.
The linden has a thick trunk with a smooth brown bark (with the passage of time it can adapt increasingly dark tonalities). Its branches are strong and thick, with white and fragrant flowers. The linden can reach thirty meters high and can live for more than seven hundred years.
In the ancient times, the linden represented the symbol of friendship and loyalty. Usually planted in the gardens in order to protect the people from the “evil eye”.
According to the Greek mythology, linden was born from a transformation of Filira, a lover of Kronos nymph, after giving birth to the first of the Centaurs, Chiron.
Because of the big amount of transformations made by Kronos, the linden is considered one of the most powerful sedative in nature, since ancient times.
