From mummification to perfume, for washing and scenting clothes, a cure for migraine and a defence against the plague, Lavender’s history and importance to people is as old as time. In folklore, Cleopatra was said to wear it as her secret weapon in seducing Mark Anthony and Julius Caesar. It is often used as an incense to ward off evil, and is placed in the marital bed to prevent quarrelling. Witches are said to prize the herb for its ability to increase clairvoyance, and a mixture of chamomile, lavender, mugwort and rose petals will attract sprites, fairies, brownies and elves.
This sterling silver charm is cast from a real flower and each piece includes a recycled card detailing its botanical folklore and floriography.

Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
