|Vinca Vine, known also as Periwinkle or Sorcerer's Violet|
Vinca Vine flourishes along the north and south borders of my property. It was once called "Sorcerer's Violet" and is often referred to as Periwinkle or Myrtle. It is a powerful charm against evil spirits and is used also in love charms and potions. Carrying this plant with you can attract money, and protect one from snakes, evil spirits and poisons. Placing it over the door is said to protect the home. It is also used to increase passion and added to love spells. Gazing at the Periwinkle is said to restore lost memories. The dried flowers or root can be used in an amulet said to bring about needed changes in one's life.
Medicinally speaking, the Vinpocetine in the Vinca Vine is said to improve blood circulation and help reduce the risk of stroke. Additionally, it is believed to assist in improving hearing, eyesight, increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, improve memory and slow the aging process. I do not recommend ingesting any portion of any plant without the guidance of a qualified physician or experienced Herbologist.
