What's best for the violets, mowing them or letting them wither and die?
Either is fine, though they do like to be deadheaded and trimmed to look their best. This article will help you to grow these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/violet/wild-violets-care.htm
We planted a few purple and a few white violets with heart shaped leaves in the garden. Now they are all over the lawn. We hired a lawn company to spray for weeds with dicamba(?). They wilted but look as if they will come back. Help!

I made a balm in the spring and it's great. I want to make more and there are still leaves growing in my yard...
You can use them whenever they are available! It will make no difference when you harvest them, so use them whenever you have the opportunity. Although the leaves have many useful compounds, they will not carry the smell of the flower. The leaves make a wonderful balm, though, don't they!? :)
Other than just ripping out the vining stems, but with the underground vining, I never get all of them. And, with the (violets) prolific reseeding, their advancing spread is almost unimaginable. Could I spray them with a broadleaf weed killer to wipe them out? I don't really want to kill any other plants in the area, or sterilize the soil. Can you provide me with any info, please? It would be most appreciated!
