Also known as Sweet Violet, this small perennial plant is easily recognized by its sweetly-scented lilac flowers and heart-shaped leaves.
Violets are a rich source of vitamins A and C. They also contain a type of antioxidant called anthocyanin – responsible for their brilliant blue/purple hue. Dried violet flowers and leaves are made into syrups, tonics and teas, and can also used to make poultices, or tinctured for use in topical ointments and salves.
Violets are an herb of love and protection. Violet crowns are said to cure headache, bring sleep, and calm anger. Violets are mixed with lavender, apple blossoms, yarrow, and roses in love potions. The leaf is a protection from all evil.
Funeral Rites – Violets and periwinkle are used to decorate the graves and corpses of children.
