Pansy

Viola Tricolor

A tea or extract brewed from dried pansy flowers, from the whole flowering plant, or from the root long served in the treatment of skin ailments. It was applied externally as a lotion or taken internally to rid the body of toxic products thought to cause skin problems. Like it's cousin V. Odorata, it was used as an expectorant, for loosening phlegm. Pansy has also been thought to be a demulcent (a substance that soothes mucous membranes, as of the respiratory tract). There is no scientific evidence regarding the validity of any claims made for pansy's healing properties.
