Deities that are most associated with lavender include Hecate (Greek), Persephone (Greek & Roman), Demeter (Greek), Hades (Greek) and Aphrodite (Greek). Other deities may be more or less compatible depending on their nature; consult an oracle or the gods themselves if unsure of compatibility.
I like to make these cookies and leave them on my altar, but they are also okay to leave outside since they are biodegradable. These are also perfect to include in your silent suppers when communing with the dead.
