Health Side-Benefits of Linen

Since early times, linen has been reputed to possess curative properties. The word flax meant “being most useful” in Latin. I was happy to know that linen has been scientifically proven to have healing properties by the present-day studies. I would like to share with you the information I got about health side benefits of linen with LinenKids, enjoy reading!


Have you ever noticed that linen is exclusively used in operating rooms? I was amazed to know that linen is the only natural material utilized for internal sutures in a surgical setting. Flax cell is highly compatible with the human cell thereby producing a benevolent effect on the human organism. The human cell is capable to completely dissolve the flax cell. This is why linen fabric is used in surgery for internal sutures. Interesting, right? Read even more health side benefits of linen.

This tip may be interesting for you. Many individuals have testified that their healing was rapid when wearing linen.  Post injury or surgical pain was substantially reduced (without the use of prescription or over the counter drugs) when using linen bandages and wearing linen clothing.

I’ve also heard of cancer patients being wrapped in linen as a treatment therapy. Since linen has the highest energy vibration of any natural fabric, this makes perfect sense. When your body is surrounded by linen fabric, you may notice its uplifting effect. I feel it! Try linen clothes and you!

Another thing I have never heard before about linen fiber. It reduces solar gamma radiation nearly by half and protects the human organism against solar radiation. Flax fiber from contaminated soils appears not to exhibit even traces of radiation.

I love the feeling of relaxation and calm, but sometimes our muscular and nervous systems are in tense. Unfortunately we cannot enjoy massage each day. Here linen clothes can be useful. Some time ago I noticed that linen has massaging properties owing to the microscopic breaks which the fabric possesses. Wearing linen I can feel a light massaging effect, favorably stimulating blood-flow and promoting relaxation. This is how linen favorably influences our cardio-vascular, nervous and muscular systems. What a great fabric is linen!

So many times I was wondering if our clothes could breathe. Many fabrics are not breathable, but linen possesses high air permeability and heat.  The heat conductivity of linen is 5 times higher than wool and 19 times than silk. Why this is important you may ask. The answer is that in hot weather, people dressed in linen clothing are found to have a lower skin temperature than others wearing silk or cotton garments. One more thing was interesting to me – according to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes, and twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. Meanwhile, in cold weather, linen works in reverse, proving ideal for retaining warmth. I love Linen Kids Clothes, because they can feel comfortable in hot summer days and chilly winter evenings.
