Lavender

Just listed a beautiful lavender sachet on my Artfire site. Use these sachets to hang from door knob, place in box with shoes and your personal drawer. O' the aroma of lavender fills the senses with wonder. Did you know there is a song that is dated from the seventeenth century about lavender! Song is called Lavender Blue. This is a few verses of the song listed on Wikipedia. Song has been sung by many famous artist. "Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavenders' green, when I am king , dilly, dilly, you shall be queen". Even royalty like to use lavender. Queen Victoria used lavender as a deodorant. Louis XIV bath in water scented with lavender. Charles VI used lavender filled pillows. Remember Yardley perfumes?
