Violet cough syrup
By Stormy Stewart karlyn255
Violets have been used to improve acne, anger, asthma, bronchitis, colds, eczema, fever, fibrocystic breast disease, grief, headache, heartbreak, lymphatic congestion, mastitis, mumps, psoriasis, scurvy, sore throat, ulcers, urinary tract infection, varicose veins, and whooping cough.
Apply a cloth soaked in violet leaf and/or flower tea to the back of the neck to treat headaches.
The flowers are eaten as a breath freshener.
Bottle or if making for later use you can put in jelly jars and boiling water bath 20 minutes to seal for shelf life. Makes a great addition to a sick basket.
