Lavender in Witchcraft

Lavender in Witchcraft

Lavender is a member of the mint family native to the Mediterranean region, Northern and Eastern Africa and parts of India. It bears fragrant purple, white or blue flowers nearly all summer long and into autumn. The plant is a low-growing shrub with multiple stems and spikes of flowers.

Lavender is masculine in action and associated with Mercury. It is also associated with the element of air and the astrological sign Virgo. It may be used as an asperging herb (to sprinkle water for purification purposes) and dried lavender sticks or wands can be burnt like incense. It is also useful in spells to sharpen the mind, to encourage or strengthen pure love and to encourage fertility.

The scent of lavender is relaxing and uplifting all at once making it great aromatherapy for stressed out or depressed individuals. Try adding some lavender oil to your bath or add it to a mild oil for a relaxing massage at the end of a hard day. Stuffing a pillow or sleep sachet with lavender buds may help insomniacs relax and fall asleep and soothes headaches.

Carrying a sachet of lavender can attract spirits and otherworld entities, making it a wonderful herb for spirit and ancestor workings.

Lavender can also be used in glamour magic. Carry it with you or use it in your beauty routine to promote longevity. It is also attracting, so if you are looking for love, try wearing lavender oil or perfume.
