Hildegard of Bingen, d. 1179, sang the praises of the delicate violet in her healing work. As a tried and true remedy, violets have been used throughout recorded history. In ancient Greece, the delicate violet flower was called “heart-ease” for its ability to mitigate anger, induce sleep and strengthen the heart.
The heart-shape violet leaves have long been included in love potions and heart tonics world wide. Violet Salve gathers these remedial and heart strengthening properties for year round use in a skin nourishing balm with a delicate natural scent.
This salve makes a natural lip balm, a balm for soothing troubled or dry skin or as aromatherapy treatment.
Violet Slave is effective on sore muscles and tight areas of the body.
