Lavender is not only physically beautiful, but its light, herbaceous fragrance omits a soothing aroma which contains healing qualities. Lavender’s spiritual qualities are known for tranquility, easing tension and promoting calmness as well as denoting serenity, grace and silence. The yin-yang balance of lavender points to the feminine side, supporting our ability to heal and increase our awareness.
Lavender is used to encourage a peaceful sleep and the feeling of happiness. Lavender was also seen for centuries as a love potion. Lovers would use the scent to heighten feelings by adding the scent to a letter or use as a perfume.
Furthermore, the cool purple tone promotes peacefulness and can sometimes be used for meditation rooms to help relax the atmosphere.
