“The floures of Lavender picked from the knaps, I mean the blew part and not the husk, mixed with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves, mixed into a powder, and given to drinke in distilled water thereof, doth helpe the panting and passion of the heart…”  John Gerard (Herball, 1597) (Oh, John, John, John!!?)
