The violet (Viola odorata or Viola blu) is a tiny plant that grows eyery year in authentic parts of Europe, Asia and North America. It was a Gods gift for the ancient Greek, and that is said in the legend, as well. It was created by Zeus, the supreme God of all Greek Gods. He fell in love with the beautiful nymph Io and to protect her from the anger of his jelaous wife Hera, he turned her into a cow. He ordered the nature (meadows) to grow a new flower that will feed it. He gave her the name Ion, in her honor, and in Greek it means violet. The Greek and the Romans discovered the madical worthiness of the violet, and even the father of medicine Hippocrates glorified its medical values, especially for the healing of headache, hangover and breathing difficulties. The violet was Napoleon Bonaparte favorite flower. He gave a bunch of violets to his wife Josephine as a gift for her birthday over the years, and before leaving in confinement to St. Helen, he picked some violets from her grave and carried them in a medallion around his neck until his death.
