Violets have long been associated with the goddess Aphrodite and the planets Venus and Pluto.
In magick, they are used for a number of reasons, but mostly for spells of wish-granting, protection, healing and of course to invite love into your life.
healthwise they are jam-packed with vitamin C and A.
They are great for heart health and colds and flu. Violets are also known to help cure headaches,( think back to pictures of ancient Greeks and the garland of violets worn around there head), and they are also beneficial to those with sleeping problems.
