Violet

Family: Violaceae
Genus: Viola
Species: V. odorata, V. alba

With dainty purple flowers and a beautiful fragrance, violas have deservedly gained a rich history. Associated with love and fertility, violas were the symbolic flower of Ancient Greece. In both ancient Greece and Rome, violet flowers were used in medicine and even violet wines.

Violets became firmly entrenched in European history when Napoleon Bonaparte adopted the flower as his emblem. Napoleon’s second wife Marie Louise moved to Parma (Italy) in 1816 and helped to promote an industry based on viola species. This industry survives in Parma to this day, producing a wide variety of scented and violet flavoured products. Fragrant molecules extracted from violets include ionones, which briefly desensitise the sense of smell. This means that the scent of a violet flower may appear to magically come and go – which might be why they are sometimes described as having a ‘flirty’ fragrance.

Violet has been used for hundreds of years in ancient medicine and aromatherapy. Violet oil is known to have several medicinal properties, including being antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
