for virgo, lavender is the bees knees

lavender.jpglavender is ruled by mercury, the same planet that watches over the zodiacal angel, virgo. and like an angel heals, so does lavender.

can’t sleep? place a drop of lavender oil on your pillow. got a rash? rub some lavender oil on it. pets love lavender oil, put a drop in their litter box or on their bed. lavender has become a modern symbol of healing and purity; a guardian of goodness. nature’s nurse, if you will. so who wants to play doctor with virgo? we should all be so lucky!

in this lavender libation, those virgoan petals take the inherent goodness of this classic cocktail to another level… a subtly fragrant one. care for a nightcap? this tipple will bring some particularly sweet dreams…

if you’d like to try your hand at growing lavender, it prefers to grow in sunny, well drained soil. if you can get it to grow, it’s amazing stuff to have in the garden! in the dead of winter, there’s nothing better than a vase of dried summer lavender. and the bees, well they just love it…

  1. I like the smell of lavender, but not the taste of it so much, so not sure how I’d like this. Love the photo though, it definitely looks pretty.
