History/Lore:
According to legend, the clothing of baby Jesus carred the aroma when Mary laid them on a Lavender bush to dry. This may explain why the plant is also regarded as a safeguard against evil. In many Christian homes, a cross of lavender is used over the door for protection.

Furthermore, grave-robbers were known to use Four Thieves Vinegar, which contained Lavender, before doing their dirty work; protecting them from contracting diseases. In 16th-century France, lavender was also used to resist infection. For example, glove-makers, who were licensed to perfume their wares with lavender, escaped cholera at that time.
