Februarys Birth Flower - Violet (Viola odorata)

Posted by Candice Covington on

The idea behind birth flowers is that the individual born in February shares similar traits naturally as the violet, and these natural tendencies, can be enhanced by bringing this flower into your energy field. Someone who is not a February baby, may bring the blessings of violet into their life, by using this flower essence and essential oil.  (use code violet at checkout for 20% off )

One beautiful creation story goes violets first blossomed when Gabriel told Mary also known by the title Viola Odorata meaning ‘Our Lady of Modesty,’ of her sons birth to come. Due to the way the violet came to be, this flower has, become an emissary for the energy of: modesty, being humble in nature and devotion

The Archangel Gabriel’s name means 'God is my strength’ and brings messages to humankind from the divine. Gabriel also brings aid in all areas related to children, helping during conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and child rearing.

Fascinatingly, the Greeks tell a similar story. Violets first came into being to protect one of Artemis’ nymphs, who like their mistress, had pledged to stay maidens. Out of compassion for her vows, Artemis turned her into a violet, to shelter her from the relentless pursuit of Apollo. This tale reinforces the energy of modesty and a devotional nature.

During the Middle Ages violets and their leaves (are heart shaped) went by the charming name ‘heart ease’. In the Victorian language of flowers, white meant modesty. Whereas, the color violet, expressed: my thoughts are occupied with love, coupled with the invitation, “dare to be happy with me”.

Key Energies: Delicate-love, affection, modesty, faith, nobility, intuition, dignity, mystical awareness, inspiration, spiritual passion, sovereignty, a patron flower for children.

Violet Flower Cordial 

Once a year with first blooms, I lovingly make flower essences stabilized in the matrix of the actual plant it comes from. Few things are more delightful than being able to savor the energy and flavor of a flower suspended in liquid on your tongue. The experience is delicate and refined

My flower cordials work on the same principle as regular flower essences but offer a deeper resonance. They are an invitation to the healing process, containing the life force energy of violet. These are vibrational substances which effect a resonance or sympathetic vibration within our being, inducing a gentle change in attitude, consciousness, and/or physical being.

 Try adding a few drops of violet cordial into your favorite drink
