This very aromatic flower has a long history in Britain and throughout Europe having a primary use in cosmetics and perfume. Indigo Herbs brings you Sweet Violet in the form of Sweet Violet Leaf Tea which has all the fragrant properties of this small dainty flower. This tea can consumed on its own or be mixed with other teas to create a beautiful infusion which will carry over the sweet smelling properties of this highly aromatic flower. For a more concentrated dose of Sweet Violet's constituents, we are delighted to offer Sweet Violet Tincture.

Stretching back as far as the Romans Sweet Violet has been used to invigorate and transform. The Romans themselves used this bright little flower for sweet wine and even in food. This practice stretched to the medieval period where Sweet Violet flowers were used in strewing on the floors of banquet halls and homes to mask undesirable smells. The most famous story regarding sweet violet concerns the relationship between Joséphine de Beauharnais and Napoléon Bonaparte. It is said that when Joséphine first met Napoléon she threw him a bunch of sweet violet. Later, after Napoléon’s defeat at Waterloo, he was granted one last visit to Joséphine’s grave before his incarceration on the Island of St Helena. Upon Joséphine’s grave Napoléon found sweet violets growing and picked a few in remembrance. These same sweet violet flowers stayed with Napoléon and were later found inside a locket around his neck on his deathbed.

This small plant was once found in many wild patches of meadow and hedgerow in Europe but has since been less noticeable during the modern age. When planted Sweet Violet can become very vigorous and can spread throughout if given the chance and enough shade. There are about 200 hundred varieties. They are found in many temperate regions throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Although there are many different forms of these flowers, the most recognisable is the small plant that has small deep purple flowers and deep green heart shaped leaves.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Sweet Violet Leaf tea can be taken by making an infusion. Select the recommended amount of leaves and immerse in boiling water for 5-10 minutes in a tea pot. Pour, strain and serve.

Serving:

Use 1-2 teaspoon of the leaves to 1 cup of boiling water. Infuse for 10 minutes then strain.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Sweet Violet Tea consists of the leaves of the Viola odorata plant which have been carefully selected, cleaned, dried and finely cut. The Sweet Violet plants are expertly grown for the specific use as tea. When the plant has reached full maturity the upper half of the plant is cut and prime examples selected. After inspection and cleaning the plants are laid out in shade to dry. This is to maintain the naturally-occurring constituents found in the plant which can be damaged by the strong rays of the sun. After drying, the harvest is tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being packed and made ready for shipping.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Sweet Violet Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

The plants used to make Indigo Herbs Sweet Violet Tincture undergo stringent checks to ensure they develop to their fullest potential, whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. After careful selection and cleaning, the plant material undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Sweet Violet is considered a safe herb with no contraindications.
