In all my herbal studies over the years I never realized this beautiful Passion flower had any medicinal uses. It has been slowly sneaking its sinewy tendrils over into my yard and gracing me with its majestic purple splendor. I knew little about this plant until I began to do some research. I then discovered that there is no actual passion fruit that develops from this flower, that is a totally different plant. In my research I came across tinctures made from the leaves stems and flowers. Now if you know anything about essential oils, you know that the top quality, best fragrance results from batches made with just the flowers themselves. I want to make the best possible quality of everything I create so in my floral and herbal waters I use the buds and flowers only as I decided to do with this tincture.
Passion flower tincture is used as a nerve tonic. It helps with anxiety, stress, insomnia and gives you a restful sleep. It should be used in small doses throughout the day to combat anxious thoughts and in larger doses at night to help calm your mind and help you fall asleep. I havent decided if this will be sold in my shop yet but if it will I will keep you updated. If I do, it will of course have crystals with calming, soothing properties added to it as well.
After making this tincture, in the course if the next few days the liquid became a lovely lavender color as the medicinal benefits began to become absorbed by it. I am excited to try this out and let you know how well it works. If you would like to see this offered in my shop let me know!
