Lavendar has long been used in love spells and sachets. Clothing rubbed with the fragrant flowers (or placed in a drawer with clothes) attracts love. These flowers are also burned or smouldered to induce sleep and rest, and are scattered about the home to maintain its peacefulness. The plant is so powerful that, if when depressed, one gazes upon the plant all sorrow will depart and a joyous feeling will settle upon the observer. Lavendar is also used in healing mixtures, carried to see ghosts, and worn to protect against the evil eye. It is added to purification baths.
