Passion Flower's active principle, called Passiflorine, has been said to be somewhat similar to morphine. For this reason the herb is associated with the Moon, but many use it for affairs of the heart and therefore associate it with Venus. Having been quite popular in Victorian Times, Passion Flower is now cultivated widely in gardens for cosmetic purpose throughout the world. In India, it is known as the Rakhi Flower, named such after the festival of Rakhi, in which it is used, which celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. Passion flower has also seen many years of use among the varied Native American tribes, but is particularly noted among the Aztecs. They used it as a tea for treating insomnia and hysteria, as well as epilepsy, valuing the flower`s ability to function as a sedative. They also valued the flower for its pain killing properties. In some lore Passion flower is also said to aid in seeking emotional balance, peace, and friendship. Some uses also prescribed it as an aid in achieving prosperity and heightening libido, a purpose from which its name may well be derived. Herbalists have found that Passion Flower can be used in calming muscle tension and twitching without effecting respiration or mental function. Because of this it can be used in treating anxiety and high blood pressure. It can also be put to use in treating pain that results from muscle tension as well as, in some cases, emotional turmoil. In Europe it is added to medications that are used to treat nerve disorders, heart palpitations, anxiety and high blood pressure. Unlike most mild sedatives, Passion Flower has also been show to be non-addictive.
