Passion Flower or passiflora incarnata originates from the American continent: the flower was especially prolific in South America and the lands that now form the southern states of the USA. Passiflora incarnata is related to passiflora edulis, the fruit of which is known as passion fruit or maracuja.
Passion Flower owes its name to the jesuit Ferrari. In his “De Florum Cultura” (1633), Ferrari described how each element of the flower symbolizes a specific part of the crucifixion of Jesus. Hence the name: passio means “suffering”, flora is “flower” and incarnata means “incarnated”. Passiflora incarnata is the crucifixion and suffering of Jesus, incarnated.
The calming effects of Passion Flower were already known by many of the American peoples in Precolumbian times. The first European to discover Passion Flower was the Spanish medic Monardes, in Peru in 1569. However, it wasn’t until the 19th century that the Passion Flower started to find use in the West as a sedative in homeotherapy and fytotherapy. In the First World War, Passion Flower was commonly used to treat “war anxiety”.
