Lavender has been used in love spells and sachets for a long time. Love is attracted to clothing adorned with fragrant flowers (or lavender placed in drawers with clothes). Writing love notes on a piece of paper that has been rubbed with lavender is a great idea. The aroma of lavender attracted men in particular, and prostitutes wore lavender water or essential oil to both advertise their occupation and attract (via magic) customers several centuries ago. If worn, lavender also protects against unkind behavior from a spouse.
These flowers are also burned or smouldered to help people sleep and relax, and they’re spread throughout the house to keep it calm. The plant is so powerful that if a depressed person gazes at it, all grief would go and a joyful feeling will overtake the spectator. Lavender has a scent that promotes longevity, thus it should be smelt as often as possible if this is a problem.
Lavender is also used to make therapeutic concoctions, to see ghosts, and to ward off the evil eye. Purification baths contain it.
