Magical Uses: Lavender has long been used in love spells and sachets. The flowers are also burned to induce sleep and rest, and are scattered about the home to maintain its peacefulness. The plant is so powerful that, if when depressed one gazes upon the plant, all sorrow will depart and a joyous feeling will settle upon the observer.
The smell is conducive to long life and should be smelled as often as possible if this is a concern. Also used in healing mixtures, carried to see ghosts and worn to protect against the evil eye. It is added to purification baths.
