Dandelions have a long and illustrious folkloric past, both magically and medicinally. Let’s take a look at some of the different ways people have used dandelions throughout history. For promoting psychic powers and to send messages to loved ones telepathically. The dandelion is associated with growth and transformation in some magical belief systems
Many dandelion superstitions have become children’s stories – for example, blowing on a dandelion puff would grant you a wish. Hold a dandelion blossom under your chin, and if your skin becomes yellow, you’ll become wealthy one day. The origins of this fable can be traced back to the Middle Ages.
The dandelion, according to “A Modern Herbal,” offers a variety of medical benefits. Warts can be cured with the sap from the stems, and the leaves can be dried and put into a tea to improve digestion. The brilliant yellow blooms can be used to make a tincture that is said to help with liver problems, and the root can also be dried and made into a tea.
Some people believe that dandelions can help them improve their psychic powers. Author Scott Cunningham advocates steeping dandelion roots in tea for divination and prophetic dreaming in his Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs.
The dandelion is associated with growth and transformation in some magical belief systems — after all, a few dandelion flowers quickly convert into hundreds of seeds ready to move about the neighborhood, repopulating neighboring yards. There’s also a link to moving on — if you have a negative habit you’d like to break, associate it with a dandelion puff and blow it away from you.
