Many people have success using passion flowers for anxiety, stress, mood swings, depression, anger management, and more. It has been shown to reduce symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) as well.
But before we get into that, let me tell you a little bit about passion flower.
You may have heard of passion fruits before – they are those bright pink or red berries that grow on trees. They are sometimes eaten raw but most times they are fermented and dried to make sweet passiflora drops, which are then put in tea or tinctures.
Passion fruit leaves and stems can also be used in herbal medicine. But how do you use them?
That is what we will discuss here today! So, stay tuned and read up on this beautiful plant known as the “sexy flower.” Hopefully you will start exploring medicinal herbs and finding new uses for these next time you find a pack of seeds or blossoms!

Create a soothing environment
After you prepare your plant for use, what next? You need to create a calm environment to enjoy the benefits of the passion flower. This means no loud noises or stressful situations.
You can reduce stress by practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises. These could be helpful in promoting emotional wellness.
Many people begin taking an interest in plants because they notice a difference when using a passion flower. However, aside from the health benefits, it is also satisfying to know that you made something yourself!
"Plants are incredible life forms designed to thrive and grow," says horticulturalist Mai Nakamura. "They give us joy by filling our hearts and spirits with wonder.
Sit with passion flower
Most people begin using passion flowers by soaking one of the petals in water or tincture to ingest it. You can also use the whole plant, but only if it is used within two weeks!
Using passion plants for mental health issues like depression requires you to do some pretesting before trying them out as a treatment.
Do not use passion plants if you are pregnant or nursing because they may contain chemical compounds that could be harmful to your child. And although there have been no reports of anyone being harmed by just eating a few leaves of passion herb, we recommend speaking with your doctor first before doing so.
You should definitely avoid consuming parts of the plant that show signs of disease such as yellowed leaves and dried out brownish-yellow pieces. These could indicate toxicity and/or infection.
Speak with passion flower
This will be your new favorite way to relax. You can use this herb for stress relief, relaxation, or sleep aid depending on how you prepare it. Simply add one leaf of plant per cup of water and let it infuse in a container overnight or up to 48 hours. The next day, drain the liquid and see if it is possible to wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.
You may also like to drink the tea early in the morning before going to work or school. It can help promote sleep and relieve anxiety. However, please do not take too much passion flower at once as it could have adverse effects. As always, under no circumstance should you stop taking any medication without doctor’s supervision.
Once again, all herbal remedies are not meant to replace conventional treatments but instead compliment them. A few weeks should be enough trial run unless you feel it does not work.
Do small things that make you happy
Like we mentioned before, learning how to use passion flowers is more about knowing what it can do for you and how to prepare it correctly than using it actively. But once you have experimented with using this flower blend in tea or as an infusion, then there are some additional tips to try.
So now let’s talk about one of our most important tips – doing something that makes you feel good.
This could be anything from working out, taking a long bath, reading your favorite book, listening to music, spending time with friends and family, and even practicing gratitude — all of these help enrich your life and give you feelings of happiness.
And yes, it takes just as much effort to achieve those benefits as it does bringing in the passion flower. So if you want to reap the rewards, you need to put in the work.
Focus on your passion flower
The second way to use the properties of passion flowers is by using them in salves or tinctures. These are typically made via either all natural ingredients or mixed together with other more potent oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, and/or hemp oil.
When making a salve, you can usually start off with 1 part plant material to be cut up and mixed into another liquid, like oil or milk. When applying this onto your skin, let enough time pass for it to work! And remember, when buying these additional oils, make sure they are temperature and ratio-friendly.
There are many ways to use passion fruit in salves. You can add it directly into the mixture or soak the dried parts of the plant first and then blend those in. Both methods require no heat needed for processing.
This article will talk about one specific type of passion flower that can be used in both internal and external applications. They are known as restorative drops and have been shown to help soothe dry, irritated skin conditions.
While there are many ways to use passion flower, most focus on either relieving stress or improving communication. Both of these can be very helpful, but for it to work, you have to use it consistently.
Meditating is an excellent way to use passion flowers because it does not require any special equipment. You can do this anywhere, at any time, and even if you never feel like taking a nap, you can still benefit from passion plant therapy.
Many people start practicing meditative breathing when they begin using passion plants. This type of breathwork helps reduce anxiety and stress. Breathing exercises also promote relaxation and sleep.
Practicing yoga is another good option. Certain positions can help calm your mind and body.
While most people focus on doing exercises while using passion flower, what is actually more effective are specific practices. These include practicing yoga or other relaxation techniques, engaging in activities that you love, and listening to music that makes you feel relaxed.
There are several reasons why practicing yoga can help reduce stress. First, yoga breaks down tension by teaching your body how to relax physically.
Second, practicing yoga teaches you about self-awareness and compassion. By paying close attention to yourself and others, you’ll learn how to address mental health issues like depression and anxiety.
Third, practicing yoga can boost moods. Certain poses and breathing exercises can increase endorphin levels, which make us happier.
Fourth, yoga helps connect you with nature. A short walk outside or some plants under your window can work wonders for your sense of calm.
Practicing yoga should be done regularly regardless of whether you’re feeling stressed out or not. Doing it every day brings long lasting benefits that can aid in recovery. Also, there are many online resources and classes you can take from the internet or nearby gyms.
Learn to laugh
A passion flower exercise is to think about a person you have a strong feeling towards. They could be your mother, friend or significant other.
Then, try to imagine what it would be like if they didn’t exist anymore. What would life look like without them?
By thinking about this, you will realize how important these people are in your life. You'll recognize their value as a person and will work hard to keep spending time with them!
This also applies when someone who is important to you isn't necessarily doing things that make you feel loved and wanted. When there's a problem, consider whether going through the motions is worth it.
Is staying in the relationship or moving on better for you?
If you've got no reason to stay, then you should probably do so at least partly out of guilt- however much sense it makes in the long run.
Guilt can sometimes prevent you from acting decisively, which only adds to the stress you're under.
