Viola tricolor is one of the most appealing wild flowers in Nature. The usefulness of this delightfully-featured little herb has been known for generations. On his alpine walks, Alfred Vogel would regularly come across Viola tricolor and he wrote extensively of its value to people of all ages.
This is a plant that is familiar to many people. Not many know, however, that herbalists have for many years taken advantage of its specific action on the skin to help with eczema and other skin rashes.
Also known as:
• Non-specific skin conditions
How it works:
Viola contains saponins. These soap-like molecules are able to soothe inflamed areas of skin. Viola also contains high levels of flavonoids which have the ability to stabilise capillary membranes. This is an important consideration in inflammatory conditions of the skin.
Improving the condition of the capillaries aids the supply of nutrients to the skin and the removal of waste products from the skin. This combination of effects improves the condition of the skin.
No restrictions to use are known.
