Botanical name: Viola odorata, or English Violet

Sweet violets are usually the harbingers of spring. The cheery little faces and heart-shaped leaves of the violets peek around stones and grasses adding color and fragrance to bright spring days. A favorite in England, violets have long been symbols of love and fertility. Pliny advised that a garland of violets worn on the head would ward off dizziness and headaches.

Parts Used - The above-ground parts of the plant gathered before flowering, dried.
