Lavender and Virgo~

Virgo...from August 24th to September 23rd...Virgo is an earth sign, and it's ruling planet is Mercury.

Lavender and Myrtle have Mercury as their ruling planet, and the calm gentle innocence of these two essential oils makes either one a good choice for Virgo.

Virgo's positive characteristics are ....practical and helpful.
While the negatives are ...cranky, pessimistic and meticulous...this explains the ruling planet Mercury.

Whether or not we believe in the influence the stars and the planets have on our lives is a personal choice for sure...however, the history that was saved and is available leads us to know that the ancient peoples lived by , believed in, and prospered from the knowledge.

Really enjoyed this post Bea! I just made some lavender bath salts for the farmers market tomorrow. Was excited to see lavender having a place in the constellations this time of year!

Plants and especially herb plants have such a rich and dated history, much that is never really tapped into.

Glad to see you are enjoying Lavender too~

Thanks for checking in and leaving your finger print.
