The scent of violet alone can quickly stop a headache. Moreover, it is known for its ability to quiet coughs, treat asthma and dissolve mucous in the airways. It is one of the few herbs that relieves hoarseness and helps to recover a lost voice. All of this is possible by drinking violet tea with honey, sipped in small doses five times a day. Violet also cleanses the blood, helps treat skin conditions and eases rheumatism, gout and inflammation of the muscles. To prepare a tincture to combat sore muscles and joints, fill a jar with the violet flowers and pour in pure alcohol. After five weeks strain and it’s ready to use.
