Magickal Uses- Lavender has long been used in love spells and sachets. A piece of paper on which you have rubbed Lavender is excellent for writing love notes. The scent of Lavender particularly attracts men. These flowers are also burned or smoldered to induce sleep and rest, and are scattered about the home to maintain its peacefulness. The scent of Lavender is conductive to long life, and should be smelled as often as possible. Lavender is also used in healing mixtures. A wish divination: Place Lavender under your pillow while thinking of your wish. Do this just prior to retiring for the night. In the morning, if you have dreamt of anything relating to your wish, it will come true. However, if you did not have dreams, or if they were unconnected with your wish, it will not manifest. Lavender is often used in Midsummer incense. Lavender is the staple of the magickal herbalist.
