Passion Flower Tincture


Passion Flower

The exquisitely beautiful Passion Flower, Purple Granadilla or Passiflora edulis – is a remarkable medicinal plant.

All parts of the plant can be used – the nervine in the seeds of the fruit are calming and relaxing, especially when taken in combination with cacao (passion fruit and cacao are also ridiculously delicious together!)  The passion flower – and also the new growth tips of the leaves – are a potent aromatose inhibitor when prepared as a tincture in alcohol – and is the tincture that we sell as our African Forest Medicinals Passion Flower Tincture.  Aromatisation is when DHEA, testosterone and progesterone “flip” over into bad estrogen – and can cause all manner of health problems related to estrogen dominance (including breast, ovarian, prostate and testicular cancers, as well as many less life-threatening, yet still debilitating, conditions).



Take the same flowers and leaf tips and make a tea out of them, however, and a completely different effect is achieved – a strong sedative – very useful if you are having trouble sleeping or suffer from anxiety.

The roots contain psychoactive cannibonoids – as do cacao and cannabis – although they are not as pronounced in the passion flower plant.

Passion flower also contains harmaline, an MAO-inhibitor, thereby acting as an effective anti-depressant as it blocks the re-uptake of serotonin and other feel-good chemicals in the brain, enabling their effects to be felt for longer.
