Sweet, gentle violet has a long history as a cough remedy (especially dry cough) and upper respiratory aid. Violet is often used as a lymphatic system tonic and an "alterative", meaning it can gradually restore the proper function of the body and increase health and vitality. She has also been used in treatments for urinary tract infections and her anti-inflammatory nature makes it a go-to for rheumatism. Violet uplifts and soothes the heart and spirit, particularly in times of grief and heartache. Her soothing and cooling energy can also be used to expel anger. She is ruled by Water and the planet Venus and often used in magicks that dealing with love, loyalty, justice, luck and good fortune.
