The beautiful and healing passion flower

  1. Few people cannot appreciate the beauty of the passion flower. Besides being a beautiful flower, this plant also has medicinal properties. However, far fewer people are aware of the medicinal effect. Where does the beautiful passion flower come from, what is the medicinal effect of the passion flower and how do you apply it?

Passion flower, the basis

  1. The passion flower or passion flower is a common climbing plant. The plant grows in liana formation with woody stems and belongs to the passion flower family (passifloraceae). More than 500 species are known. The passion flower is native to North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean. In South America you will find them high in the Andes mountains, but also in the humid heat of the tropics. We also find a number of varieties of the passion flower in Oceania and Asia. Originally Australia has only a limited number of passion flower varieties.

The garden plant

  1. The original passion flower prefers to live in a warmer climate than the Dutch climate, but the plants have now been cultivated. The cultivated Dutch garden plant has lost its proliferating character in nature. It is now a 'neat' plant that you can grow in the ground against a fence or wire mesh or grow in a pot with a matching climbing frame. The specimens as for sale in the Netherlands, will therefore never proliferate as they do in nature.

The healing plant

  1. Besides the fairytale beauty of the flowers, the plant is also healing. The plant has always been used in the original countries as a sedative and sleeping agent, blood purification medicine and an intoxicant. However, the Maya also used the plant for nerve pains and restlessness. The plant contains flavonoids, cyanogenic glycosides and essential oil.

Ready to use

  1. If you don't want to get started with tea or something like that, the passion flower is available in tablets or drops at health food stores, some drugstores and in the pharmacy.


  1. Although the passion flower dates back centuries, the passion flower was only popular in Europe from the end of the 16th to the beginning of the 17th century. However, it took until the end of the 20th century before not only the beauty of the passion flower was appreciated, but also its medicinal properties were really taken seriously.
