Sweet Violet Leaf Infusion

Viola odorata



Soothing beyond be-leaf!

The Viola odorata, or sweet violet, is known for its delicate, sweet-smelling flowers, which bloom throughout the cold seasons. When not sold as ornamental plants, they are cultivated for culinary purposes (the plant is entirely edible) or for their leaves from which a fragrant absolute can be extracted.

What are the benefits of violet leaves in cosmetics?

The leaves contain mucilage, a natural substance that soothes the skin and helps create lovely creamy textures. It is released when the leaves are infused in hot water, even more when they’re boiled to make a decoction.
