Culinary

The Wild Violet flower and leaves are edible and loaded with minerals and vitamins, especially A and C.  Two thirds of a cup of Wild Violet leaves are equal to 4 oranges.  The leaves can be eaten fresh in salads, steamed or used in soups and strew to make them more interesting.  The flowers can also be eaten fresh, thrown into salads and used as garnish and candied as an edible decoration.  The flowers are sweet and remind one of a candy only without any artificial taste.


Health & Wellness

The Wild Violet was once considered a remedy for soothing a broken heart!  However it is now used to boost ones immune system and to stimulate the lymphatic glands to detox.  It is a wonderful plant to forage in spring to support a cleanse and increase one’s energy.  It is also considered a blood purifier increasing energy and body function.  It can be used to decrease fever and inflammation and for sinus infections, bronchitis, sore throats and coughs.

Topically it has been used on skin ailments like eczema, and growths such as cysts, mastitis, and fibrocystic breasts.
