Passionflower is a beautiful, exotic looking plant that’s known for its soothing effects on body and mind. The medicinal benefits of passion flower weren’t widely recognized until the 19th century, but it’s been used by native people groups of North and South America for centuries. Although the herb is referred to as passion “flower”, all parts of the plant can be used for health benefits. Most often the leaves, stems, and flowers are used, but the roots have also seen frequent use in traditional medicine practices.
Passionflower has many uses, but is mainly used as a treatment for anxiety and other nervous disorders. Passionflower is most commonly used in combination with other herbs.
Also, Passionflower is commonly used for insomnia, especially that which is characterised by racing thoughts before bedtime.
