Periwinkle as a remedy was used in ancient times. In the middle ages, he was credited with miraculous power and considered a talisman that protects against the power of the devil and evil spirits. The plant is widely used in folk medicine in many countries as an astringent, hemostatic, wound-healing and "blood-purifying" agent. Recently, it has been established that the plant extract has the ability to significantly reduce blood pressure. Internal use of periwinkle, as a highly poisonous plant, requires great care.
