Passion Fruit for Skin Care and Wellness

The merits of hte passion fruit in skin care and wellness do not stop at its aromatherapeutic benefits.

Acta Hort. (ISHS) 841 557-562 (Accessed Nov 19, 2009)

Another wellness benefit that can be enjoyed courtesy of the passion fruit is a better night's sleep. It happens due harman and harmine, the phytonutrients that are slightly sedative ( (Accessed Nov 16, 2009)

Eat it. Drink it. Use as a mask on your skin.
