Magical Uses: Lavender has long been used in love spells and satchets. Clothing nabbed with the fragrant flowers (or lavender placed in drawers with clothes) attracts love. A piece of paper on which you've rubbed lavender is excellent for writing love notes. The scent of lavender particularly attracts men, and lavender water or the essential oil was worn by prostitutes several centuries ago to both advertise their profession as well as to attract (through magic) customers. Lavender also protects against cruel treatment at the hands of a spouse if worn. These flowers are also burned or smouldered to induce sleep and rest, and are scattered around 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. Indeed, the odor of lavender is conducive to long life, and so should be smelled as often as possible if this is a concern.

The dried flowers and peel are added to love satchets and mixtures, and the leaves are used in lust teas. A lemon tree grows from a seed which was taken from a lemon that you have consumed is a highly appropriate gift for a loved one, although admittedly this is a long process.
