  1. Dear Anya:

    The linden trees are in full bloom and I'm intoxicated at the scent. Can you recommend how to capture the scent?

  3. Hi Ricki

    The best way to capture the scent of linden blossoms is to tincture them. Use 190 proof alcohol and fill the jar with the blossoms and cover with the alcohol. Drain daily and replace the blooms. You may have to do this many times before you get a strongly-scented tincture.

    Best wishes,
    Anya
