a tribute to our beautiful state flower! 💜
Appearing first in early spring, sweet violets are known for their everlasting beauty.
These gorgeous blooms not only make our landscape look absolutely beautiful, but they’re filled with all kinds of symbolic meaning and healing powers, too. If you’ve never given any thought to the deeper meaning of violet flowers, let's do it now.
The word “violet” is a derivative of the Old French word, “violet” or “violet.” Its scientific name, genus Viola, refers to a large genus of flowering plants in the violet family, Violaceae.
Violets are most commonly associated with love – and if you’ve ever seen a violet, that probably makes a ton of sense. These beautiful flowers give off a heady, sensual fragrance that will make you want to fall in love all over again.
Violet flowers have a soft, tender aura, a bit similar to iris, and smell powdery and romantic. The violet blossom fragrance is soft, sweet, candy like, to a woody floral tonalit.
However, the violet plant has other meanings, too. They can symbolize honesty, protection, dreams, healing, remembrance, determination, and even the idea of setting goals. In the middle ages, monks called these violet plants ‘the herb of the trinity’ due to their three distinct colors of purple, yellow and green.
The color violet is reminiscent of the Sahasrara, a crown chakra whose energy focuses on matters of enlightenment and awareness, too.
Therefore, purple violet flowers with their stunning violet hues can also be associated with growth, expansion, and peace. They are often viewed as symbols of mental clarity. They are also the birth flower of February.
The leaves, stems, and flowers of violets were used widely as food, eaten raw or cooked. As a medicine, all parts of the plant were used internally and externally to treat heart problems, joint pain, diarrhea, fever, gas, indigestion, bronchitis, poor circulation, colds, coughs, dysentery, bladder pain, and sore throat. Range of applications included binding the leaves on head for headache; using a poultice of crushed root for boils; spraying tea up nose for catarrh; and soaking corn in root tea before planting to keep off insects.
