Lavender is a very cleansing, protective and purifying herb. It is a masculine herb with the planet of Mercury and the element air. Lavender has been used in love sachets/incense and purification sachets/incense for thousands of years. Witches would also throw lavender into the Midsummer fires as a sacrifice to the gods. Lavender was also added into many healing ritual incense and frequently into bath mixtures. It is said that the odor of lavender is conducive to long life and should be smelled as often as possible. Legend also has it that if one carries lavender they will possess the ability to see ghosts and that if one is depressed and one gazes at a plant of lavender that all sorrow will depart and a joyous feeling will settle upon them.

Hello PaganWolf314
You have a good approach to knowledge. Can I add a little bit your essay? Lavender is considered the birthplace of the Mediterranean. But the lavender grows from the Canary Islands to the Arabian and Eastern India. Lavender is grown specifically for different purposes in France, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Russia. Gather lavender during its mass flowering, when the dissolved 50% of flowers - at the time of their color and flavor of the strongest. This period begins in late June - early July, so it is best to collect the plant in the Ivan Kupala Day, when all the plants reach the peak of his magical powers. Inflorescences are cut to a length of 10-12 cm, and hung out to dry in a warm, shaded and well ventilated place, and then robbed flowers.
