In the past a syrup of violas was commonly made to help treat coughs and colds. Additionally, the flowers can be macerated into a paste and applied topically to treat acne, eczema and other skin irritations.
Violas make an attractive addition to herb, green and grain salads. Violas can be cooked down with sugar to make syrups and jams. Violas can be used to flavor vinegar, oils, beverages, butter and tea. Most commonly they are used for ornamental purposed and can be used candied or fresh atop ice cream, crème brule, tarts, cakes and other delicate pastries.
Native to Europe, the viola dates back to 4th century BC Greece where they were commonly used for medicinal purposes. In medieval times they were scattered on floors to freshen the air, the Romans were known to make the flowers into wine and in the Victorian era they were used to create fragrant perfumes. Mentions of the flower even appear in Shakespearean writings. Today violas are a popular garden flower and can be found growing in temperate regions throughout the world.
