Lavender has always been considered a magical herb, its uses have changed throughout time. In the 16th century it was frequently hung above doorframes to prevent evil spirits from entering buildings. It was also said that having lavender in your home or bathing in it would prevent “evil fits” from occurring.
On St. John’s Day, a religious holiday, the Spanish and Portuguese would throw lavender onto the floor of their church or in a bonfire to ward off evil spirits. Later, in the 19th century, travelers would sell lavender on the streets throughout Europe to protect against bad luck and bring good fortune.
It is associated with attracting and deepening love, fertility, peace, calming, protection, success, and attaining money. Carrying can help grant one love, peace and good health, and beside the bed it will attract good dreams and benevolent spirits.
