Description: Our Passion Flower Herb tincture is an infused alcoholic solution; at a ratio of 1:4 (45% alcohol). The passionflower is a perennial, climbing vine native to Southern and Central America that is now cultivated in Europe. It can reach a height of 10-12 metres and climbs by means of thin tendrils which spiral around the host plant to hold itself in place. The leaves are palmate, 3-lobed and alternate and 6–15cm in length. The 5-petaled flowers also have 5 sepals making it look like the flower has 10 petals; they are pale bluey white in colour with a purple ‘fringe-like’ layer of fine petals on top. The flower has 5 pale coloured stamens and 3 stigmas, the flowers are 7-10cm in diameter.
Brief History: Passionflower leaves were used by the ancient tribes of the Amazon in poultices to help heal cuts and bruises. The Cherokee Indians used the herb in similar ways, and brewed the leaves and tendrils into a tea that they drank to counteract nervousness.
