      Violet

      Violet “of thought” is not just an ornamental plant, but has also therapeutic qualities as anti-cough, expectorant, purifying, moisturizing, laxative, anti- scrofulous and anti-inflammatory qualities. This plant is rich in carotenoids, flavonoids, saponins, derivate from salicylic acid and vitamin. It is particularly recommended for composition, oily and impure skins, further than for more skin problems as eczema, psoriasis, skin rash, urticarial, herpes and to cure cradle cap of children. In order to heal oily and impure skins we use often violet in “tandem” together with burdock that is also known for its purifying qualities.

      Violet is also indicated in case of gout, cellulitis and to purify the blood. Further disorders that are cured with violet are fever, cough, cold, constipation, catarrh, asthma, rheumatism and further articular pains. The violet “of thought” can be assumed as a mother tincture, infusion, decoction, tablet, pill and tisane. This plant has a slightly bitter taste. It is an excellent wound healing product for the skin, especially if it is added to bath water or to foot- and hand bath.
