Cosmetic Uses
The plant has long been cultivated for its perfume, as well as being added to cosmetics, drinks, sweets, and syrups, and long thought of as the plant of ancient goddesses. Syrups are made from infusions and used to treat coughs. Mouthwashes are also made from infusions and used for mouth and throat infections. Flowers are good for skin rashes and irritant eczema. Decoctions from the flowers are used as an eyebath and mouthwash. They are also crystallized and added to desserts.

There is considerably more to the common sweet violet (Viola Odorata) that meets the eye, although this hardy little perennial with exquisite flowers and broad, heart-shaped leaves is certainly attractive ... be it in the woods or in a shaded garden. However, it has also been used through the ages in medicinal preparations, culinary concoctions, perfumes, cosmetics, and dyes.

Sweet Violets either fresh or dried are used in teas or baths for the soothing and slight astringent quality. Violets contain salicylic acid and are extremely high in vitamins A and C. Violet flower water (1/4 c. Violets steeped in warm spring water for 30 minutes, strained, bottled and refrigerated) is used on the face as a tonic and healing spritz for all sorts of facial afflictions. It is wonderful as an after-shave water or even as a wash for baby's skin. If the leaves and flowers are macerated in oil, strained and then beeswax added, this cream is excellent as a daily application to remove cosmetics, or can be used daily on your face and hands for dry skin.

More

In the 1930s, sweet violet was widely used to treat breast and lung cancer and still figures in alternative cancer therapies, especially after surgery, to prevent the development of secondary tumors. The flowers were once popular in syrups, which were used for a wide variety of complaints.

The Chinese variety is used mainly to treat infectious skin conditions including boils. It is also used to treat snakebites and taken internally for lymphatic inflammations and breast abscesses. The aerial parts of the sweet violet are used for coughs, bronchitis, and phlegm.

In addition to their medicinal uses, the flowers can be eaten in salads . . . boiled, pressed, pounded, and mixed with milk, rice flour, and sugar into a porridge . . . crystallized as beautiful candies . . . added to vinegar to impart color and fragrance . . . made into a rare and delicate jelly . . . and even fermented to produce a sweet wine. Since the blue color is released by infusion, violets have been used to create delicate eyeshadows and fragrant, tinted skin lotions. (A curious feature of the infused color is its property of turning red when in contact with acid, and green when in contact with an alkali. Because of this reaction, it has been used as a substitute for litmus.)

Sweet violet leaf oil said to relieve anger and anxiety. An important essential oil used inperfumery.
