A sweet herb with a long medicinal tradition, the heart shaped leaves are used to soothe skin swellings, inflammation and also bruising. The leaves are steeped in olive oil to transfer their herbal properties before being strained and made into ointment. Sadly, there is none of the lovely violet fragrance as only the leaves are used. Use in conjunction with Chamomile for best results for skin conditions.
Ingredients: Viola odorata (Violet), Olea europaea (Olive Oil), Cera alba (Beeswax).
