Viola Herb (zi hua di ding)

Herba Vilae

Properties: Bitter and pungent in flavour, cold in nature, it acts on the heart and liver channels. The function of the pungent flavour is dispersing. The action of the cold property is purging and clearing away heat and acting on the heart, liver and blood. The potency of clearing away heat, detoxicating and of subduing swellings and dissolving lumps is equivalent to that of the dandelion herb. So it is often used in combination with the latter to reinforce each other¡¯s action in treating sores due to noxious heat. The herb is expecially powerful in detoxication hence being an important medicine for treating furunculosis.
