Uses of Passion Flower Herb

The passion flower is currently used in herbal medicine as a sedative, antispasmodic and nerve tonic. It’s reported that the flower can alleviate headaches, bruises and general pain by applying the bruised leaves topically to the affected area.

Used as a tea, the flower is purported to help ease colic, diarrhea, dysentery, menstrual difficulties, insomnia, neuralgia, eye disorders, epilepsy and convulsions, and muscle spasms and pain.

Interestingly, in South America the fruit juice is also used as a natural remedy to calm hyperactive children. Most recently, scientists have found that the flower helps with anxiety and fertility.
