Lavender fact: Do you know that Lavender is a plant rich in history and myth?

Lavender fact:

Do you know that Lavender is a plant rich in history and myth?

With its roots in the ancient herbalists, lavender’s properties as a disinfectant and antiseptic grew through the centuries, even gaining the reputation of warding off the plague. 

Lavender’s popularity with the English royalty gave it a berth in the ranks of a cosmetic herb, and it was with Queen Victoria that lavender was recognized as a tonic for nerves.

Sharing of the day - Do you know the hidden symbol of the owl? 什么?猫头鹰竟然代表这些???

The Symbol of the Owl

In Europe, the owl is the embodiment of "all wisdom."

In Greek mythology, the owl is the symbol of "Athena". In the Greek mythology, Athena is the God who was born from the head of his father, Zeus. She is known as the goddess of war, goddess of peace, goddess of victory, and goddess of wisdom.

In Mexico, the owl is a symbol of "wealth."

In the South-West Pacific Samoa, the owl represents "wisdom" and "mysterious power". The locals believe that they are the descendants of the owl.

In Western countries, the owl is "The Patron Saint of the Night". It is also a symbol of wisdom. It possesses mysterious power and capable to have insight into all.

In Australia, the owl is said to be “The Patron Saint of the Female Aborigines”.

In Japan, the owl has the meaning of "blessing”, “peace" and "wisdom". From its pronunciation “HUKUROU”, it represents the hard work, an indication of prosperity, encouragement and blessing. In Japanese, blessing is pronounced as "HUKU", same beginning pronunciation as the owl, HUKUROU. Thus, in Japan, the owl is a symbol of blessing and prosperity; whereas in Hokkaido, it is the Patron Saint for the Ainu people that represents “Blessing & Eternity”.

In Taiwan (for Thao people), the owl is the lucky bird that bring "good fortune".

在日本,猫头鹰有「祈福平安」的意义及「智慧」的象征,从它的发音HUKUROU 延伸出不苦劳、不老,可以繁盛的意思,都是一种鼓励与祝福。听人讲日本「福」字的发音为"HUKU",跟猫头鹰的前音一样,所以猫头鹰除了有不苦劳外还有祝福福气的意思,而在北海道猫头鹰则是爱奴族的守护神,代表「福气、不老、祈福」的象征
