A herb of mercury, lavender is one of the most versatile and universally useful herbs of all. Refreshing, toning and uplifting, it both relaxes and invigorates mind and spirit. It is suitable for all types of skin and can be used in any skin care preparation, but may be particularly useful where a nervous component affects the condition of the skin.
Magically, lavender water can be used to dispel negative energy and helps to keep demons at bay. Even King Solomon used it in his temple purification. It is excellent for 'grounding' after spirit journeys as it promotes calmness and serenity and aids reflection.
