Taking Violet after a long winter is a wonderful way to get your body ready for a healthy and energetic spring. Violet also supports the immune system, helping to clear infections of all kinds.
It is known as the most effective flower/herb for treating upper respiratory tract infections. It is both soothing and cooling and helps reduce fever and inflammation. Native American populations such as the Cherokee used blue violet to treat colds and headaches, while early botanists suggested it for coughs, sore throats, and constipation. Historically, violet is used to treat dry-lungs. So, it is really effective when you’re feeling dry internally, a dry throat, or dry cough. It is for this reason that it was the first ingredient when I created the Magical Rejuvenation Range in December 2014 during a flu epidemic here in the UK.
The Flower Essence I made is from Wild Violets gathered from my garden, Its wider use has been very effective in repairing muscles and reducing and removing cysts and other anomalies as well as being very effective as a cancer healer.
