Passion Flower History
Today we’ll be spotlighting passion flower, the sexiest, chillest super herb in the bunch. Best known for its calming, dream-like effects, passion flower was first introduced by the Native Americans and the Aztecs of Mexico to help soothe the spirit and calm the mind. As its popularity grew, this enchanting herb became a staple folk remedy for centuries in both Europe and North America. With over 500 species, Passiflora incarnata remains the most well-researched member of the passion flower family (and acts as a prime ingredient in our Tē!).
Let’s Talk Passion
Much like our other feel-good ingredient, hawthorn berry, passion flower promotes a zen, tranquil state of mind. Packed with powerful antioxidant flavonoids like chrysin, apigenin, luteolin, quercetin, kaempferol and isovitexin (and no, those aren’t superpowers or spells), passion flower has been shown to improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, boost radiant skin, and even perk up your libido. Yep, you read that right! History has shown that sipping -ahem- passion flower tea can ignite desire and give you that feeling of supernatural sexiness. Check please!
So next time you need help reaching that O-verwhelming sense of confidence, relaxation, or self-love... sit back, relax, and enjoy a calming can of SkinTē. ;)
