The violet tree is one of the most popular of all traditional medicines in Africa and can be used to help support many different health concerns. Amongst the numerous potential uses, it is particularly popular for coughs, chest complaints, joint pain, toothache, headache, constipation and as contraceptive. It is applied externally for the potential to help support symptoms of wounds, sores and rheumatic pain. The bark can be been used as an ingredient of arrow poison and as ordeal poison.

*Note: Violet (Viola odorata) is the source of TerraVita® teas and supplements. It should not be confused with the poisonous violet tree (Securidaca longependunculata) for which a brief monograph is presented below for related interest only.

Violet Tree
Securidaca longepedunculata Fres. (often given as "S. longipedunculata" in the literature).

Family: Polygalaceae.

Other Names: Securidaca (French); Securidaca (German); securidaca (Italian).

Description: The violet tree is up to 6 mm height and has a characteristic pale grey, smooth bark. The oblong leaves are crowded towards the stem tips, where clusters of attractive pink to purple flowers are borne in early summer. The fruit is a round nut with a single large, curved wing. The plant has a very distinctive appearance and is not likely to be confused with any others.

Origin: Tropical Africa. The tree is not cultivated.

Parts Used: Mainly the roots, sometimes also the stem bark or leaves.

Therapeutic Category: Traditional panacea and general tonic, antitussive.

Preparation and Dosage: The safe dosage has not been recorded. Decoctions are taken for chest complaints, while the roots are chewed to help support toothache. A hot water poultice of the roots is said to give symptomatic support of joint pain, while powdered root or wood scrapings are rubbed into scarifications on the forehead to help support headaches.

Active Ingredients: The volatile oil of the roots contains large amounts of methyl salicylate. Various triterpene saponins, with presenegenin as aglycone, the toxic indole alkaloid securinine and some other alkaloids (including ergot alkaloids) have been reported.

Health Effects: The presence of salicylates may partly explain the wide diversity of uses. Methyl salicylate is known as a counter-irritant that penetrates the skin and underlying tissue to act as a potent anti-inflammatory agent. It is also known to be useful in oral hygiene. Saponins have secretolytic properties and thus would explain the antitussive effects of the product. The toxicity is ascribed mainly to securinine.

Warning: The plant is known to be very poisonous and is not suitable for self-medication.

Status: Traditional health.

The Violet family covers 200 species, some of which, particularly in South America, have roots with vomitive properties which can replace ipecacuanha. The seeds of the Sweet Violet are purgative. The flowers, mainly those of this last species, are pectoral.

A gently laxative syrup can be prepared by an infusion of the fresh petals. This syrup can also be used as a reactive. Culpeper tells us it can be useful in hot swellings to drink the decoction of the leaves and flowers made with water or wine, or to apply them as poultices to the affected part.

The sweet, mild but pleasantly bitterish aerial portions of violet support the lungs, stomach, liver, and the heart. The demulcent, expectorant, alterative, antipyretic, antiseptic, vulnerary, and antispasmodic properties of the flower have lead to its health use in cases of a dry cough and a sore throat. Saponins, phenolic glycosides, and mucilage have been identified through biochemical analysis.

Violet can be used as a syrup for sore throat, dryness of the upper-respiratory tract, chronic coughs and asthma with associated dryness. It can also be tried to soften hard lumps. It is antihypertensive. The steamed fresh leaves can be used as a potherb.

Violet, Sweet
Viola odorata L.
(Dog Violet: Violariviana)

Medicinal Usage

Sweet violets were used as a mild laxative, and to help support respiratory disorders, hot swellings, coughs, colds, mouth and throat infections, catarrh, headaches, insomnia, quinsy, pleurisy and many other ailments. Gerard said "the leaves of violets are used in cooling plasters, oils, and comfortable cataplasms, or poultices; and are of greater efficacy among other herbs, as Mercury, Mallows, and such like."

Culinary Usage

Violet petals were added to salads, crystallized for cake and pudding decorations, and made into a sweet syrup for flavouring custards and omelettes. They were also used to flavour wine.

Miscellaneous

A native of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, sweet violets have been cultivated for their perfume and rejuvenating properties for over 2,000 years. Pliny said that "placed on the head in chaplets, or even smelt, they disperse the after-effects of drinking and its headaches." The ancient Greeks held the flower in such high esteem that they made it the emblem of Athens. It was also the flower of Aphrodite (Venus), the goddess of love, and as such was often included in love potions. As a symbol of purity and humility, it was associated with Mary, the mother of Jesus. The plant was known to the Anglo-Saxons, and listed by Aelfric. Folklore says that violets blooming in autumn foretell the arrival of some kind of epidemic in the following year. Although there are about nine British violets, most country folk recognized only two: the sweet violet (the only one to have scented flowers) and the dog violet (the prefix being a derogatory term for a plant that was in some way inferior to its relative - that is, it had no perfume). Gerard highly praised violets, "for they admonish and stir up a man to that which is comely and honest; for flowers through their beauty, variety of colour, and exquisite form, do bring to a liberal and gentlemanly mind, the remembrance of honesty, comeliness, and all kinds of virtues." Violets yield a purple dye. The flowers were used in perfumes, floral waters and pot-pourri.
