Heart's ease, also known as Viola tricolor, is a small flower used for its medicinal properties, some proven, some suspected, involved in healing skin, excretion, as a diuretic (inducing urination) or laxative (substance that loosens the stool), as an anti-inflammatory agent, or for treating allergies. The flower's properties are sometimes recommended for use in certain skin diseases, in particular eczema and acne. They can also be used for treatment of minor and temporary digestive problems, or sleep disorders. Depending on the treatment, Heart's ease can be administered as a cream or in an infusion. It is not recommended for use in children.
