Passionflower: Traditionally used as a calming herb for such conditions as anxiety and insomnia, passionflower can also be helpful in easing headaches for people of a certain constitution. As the name suggests, passionflower is good for people who get easily worked up about life/ For people who are very passionate, who get easily angered, this herb calms the nervous system and makes them less likely to hold onto the headache.

Also Refered As: Passiflora incarnata, Passiflora caerulea, Apricot Vine, Blue and Purple Passionflower, and Maypop.

Introduction: Passionflower is a climbing vine native to South Texas, Mexico, and Central America. Growing to a length of 30 feet (9 meters) under ideal conditions, the vine bears three-lobed leaves, purple flowers, and yellow-to-orange egg-shaped fruit. The name of the plant comes an analogy between the plant?s ornate flower to the elements of the crucifixion of Jesus, white and purple to symbolize heaven and purity, five stamens for the five wounds he suffered, three style for the three nails used to affix him to the cross. A Spanish doctor named Nicolas Monardes was the first to document the flower used in Peru in 1569, which he then brought back to Europe with him, where its popularity spread quite rapidly as a sedative. It was later classified by Linnaeus in 1745, when he noted over 20 species. Nowadays, there are reputably over 400 different species.

I have to admit that it was very informative. May I add something, not so important, but useful. I had visited Wudang mountains in the past and I saw one of those flowers, especially the passiflora caerulea, which was one of the most powerful healing herb-flowers as you said. The doctors were using the pollen of the flower and had mixed it with jade's dust and made a liquid, I can hardly remember its name. It's been spread all around someone's body and after a good massage, all diseases had gone. I hope that was helpful. Blessed be :)

Good post. Passion flower vine and leaves are also a mild MAOI. So if you plan to take it internally be careful of adverse reactions to certain prescriptions.
