History of lavender

Lavender has been traced back to 2,500 years ago during the Ancient Egypt period, according to North Carolina State University news. The Egyptians used lavender oil during mummifications to soak the linen that would cover the bodies. However, Egyptians would also use lavender for washing routines, hair oil and body perfume. The name lavender originated from ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash’, which explains why it was such a popular plant for scenting baths and hair. Lavender was also considered one of the ‘holy herbs’ by Ancient Greeks, and was used in preparing their holy essence, also known as ‘nard’. 

Born between May 21st and June 21st, Gemini’s air sign is ruled by the planet Mercury, making them extremely charismatic. With so much playfulness and curiosity, it’s safe to say there will never be a dull moment when they’re around. And, for someone who’s constantly on the go, there’s nothing better than a flower (like lavender) that promotes sleep and calmness. Represented by the twin symbol, Geminis have an all-rounder personality, meaning they excel in multitasking and are super flexible when it comes to any sort of change - just like lavender, with its many uses!
