Lavender symbolizes love, affection, purity, neatness, longevity, persistence and peace. Lavender prevents the “bad eye”!
According to folk tradition, lavender did not smell at all until the Mother of our Lord laid the swaddling cloth of baby Jesus on a lavender bush. As of a miracle, when She removed it from the bush, lavender acquired a devine odour!
The Ancient Greek and the Romans used it to apply a relaxing aroma to their baths.
