The dandelion has a number of medicinal properties. The sap from the stems can be used to cure warts, and the leaves can be dried and made into a tea to aid in digestion. A tincture brewed from the blossoms is believed to help with complaints related to the liver, and the root can be dried and brewed into a tea as well.
Some people use dandelions to enhance psychic abilities, use of dandelion roots in a tea to aid in divination and prophetic dreaming.
In some magical belief systems, the dandelion is associated with growth and transformation – after all, a few dandelion flowers soon turn into hundreds of seeds waiting to travel around the neighborhood, repopulating other yards. There’s also a connection to moving on – if you’ve got a bad habit you want to get rid of, associate it with a dandelion puff, and then blow it out away from you.
