Violet leaf has a long history of use in European medicine. It is loaded with Vitamins A & C, and also contains flavonoids, mucilage, calcium and magnesium. It is a sweet, gentle-yet-potent blood purifier, making it wonderful for numerous skin conditions. Violet stimulates the lymph system, aiding immune function. It is cooling, soothing, and expectorant. Violet is often used in cases where the mucosa is dry or there is lymphatic stagnation or spleen enlargement. It can be of great help during mononucleosis. It has also been employed as an anticancer herb, particularly when used to protect the breasts, lymphatics, and lungs.
