Lavender: language of flowers and plants


LANGUAGE AND MEANING OF FLOWERS AND PLANTS

LAVENDER

Lavandula

(family

Lamiaceae

)

In the language of flowers, lavender can have two distinct and contradictory meanings.

The first meaning refers to an ancient tradition that tells that lavender was used in ancient times against snakes and recommended to rub it on wounds after having left it to soak in water. It was therefore considered an antidote but it was also said that snakes made their nests inside its bushes, especially asps, so the ancient peoples approached them with great caution. From this belief it derived its meaning in the language of flowers that is "distrust".

The second meaning of lavender, on the other hand, is linked to milder feelings and giving lavender as a gift would mean: "Your memory is my only happiness".


Lavender: language of flowers and plants

The attribution of a symbolic meaning to flowers and plants was the work of Mary Wortley Montagu, who at the time was the wife of the English ambassador to Constantinople. During his stay in the Turkish capital in the first decade of the 1700s, he learned of selam, a local custom that attributed symbolic meanings to all sorts of objects, but above all to flowers, fruits and plants. He reported everything in some of his letters that were published in 1763, which gave great resonance in Europe to this topic with numerous publications on it.

LAVENDER

As you can guess from the name, "lavender" comes from the Latin "wash" which means "that must be washed". Already known to the populations of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece, lavender was used for the creation of talismans and love spells, to perfume the spa water and as a cleanser for the body.

One of its possible meanings refers precisely to this use, which sees the plant used precisely for "to wash".
Another possible meaning is more closely related to the language of flowers and sees lavender associated with pleasant memory of a past love: an interpretation full of nostalgia and loneliness.
