African violet (Saintpaulia ionantha) is feminine in nature and is aligned with the planet Venus and the water element. It is used for rituals related to protection and to enhance spirituality in the home.

It should be noted that an African violet is not related to edible violet and should not be consumed.


African violets, known for their vibrant purple flowers, have a rich history of magical uses, with their petals believed to enhance psychic abilities and intuition.

These plants are associated with Venus, the goddess of love, and are used in love spells and rituals to promote harmony and attraction in relationships.

In folklore, it is said that carrying a dried African violet leaf in your wallet can attract money and protect your finances from unexpected expenses.

African violets are considered excellent plants for dream work, helping individuals access the realms of the subconscious mind.
