Viola is a genus of flowering plants in the violet family Violaceae.
Liqueur activity: in ancient Greeks the violet was in mythology dedicated to the posthumous flowers of the goddess of vegetation Perzefoni, daughters of Zeus and Demetra. Besides, she was a valued herb-rich plant. Hippocrates and Diocysts report on their experiences of many forms of herbal treatment, among which the violet was used against alcoholism The Glasgow Medical School in Salern (XI century) also considered violet as a very good drug against the consequences of alcoholism. It is surprising that the use of violet in the treatment of alcoholism even in public medicine is no longer heard, so there is a reasonable suspicion that Violet Dioskurida was not a fragrant violet. After the highest recognition in the Middle Ages, the violet fell into oblivion and found only a great advocate in Kneipp.
