|Passiflora at the Casa|
|The passiflora capsules I am taking.|
In Germany, where I am at the moment, passionflower is available as an over-the-counter sedative in combination with other calming herbs such as valerian and lemon balm. It is also used in German homeopathic medicine to treat pain, insomnia, and nervous restlessness.
Today, professional herbalists use passionflower (often in combination with other calming herbs) to help treat insomnia, tension, and other health problems related to anxiety and nervousness.
