Lavender folklore

Lavender has been used for hundreds of years in many ways, medicinally as well as in love spells and rituals. By carrying lavender flowers you can attract spirits as well as bringing peace, love and good health, but it will also give protection against the evil eye. It was traditional to pin lavender to the clothes of young children for this reason.
Where there is lavender there will be faeries, so if you wish the fae to visit your garden, plant lavender in your borders; the faeries will bring healing and protection to your house. Lavender mixed with mugwort, rose petals and chamomile at midsummer will attract the inhabitants of faerieland.
It is also prized by witches as it increases their power of clairvoyance.
