Latin name: Calendula officinalis
Common names: Calendula, Husband’s Dial, Holigold, Marybud, Caltha
officinalis, Golds, Ruddes, Mary Gowles, Oculus Christi, Pot Marigold,
Marygold, Fiore d’ogni mese, Solis Sponsa.
Parts Used: Flowers, herb, leaves.
Herbal uses: Marigold is chiefly used as a local remedy. It is useful in the
treatment of chronic ulcer, varicose veins, and jaundice. A Marigold flower,
rubbed on the affected part, is a remedy for the pain and swelling caused by
the sting of a wasp or bee. A lotion made from the flowers can be used for
sprains and wounds. The leaves can eaten as a salad and a yellow dye has
also been extracted from the flower, by boiling.
Associations: Marigold is associated with the sun and the element of fire.
Magickal uses: Magical attributes include prophesy, legal matters, the
psychic, seeing magical creatures, love, clairvoyance, dreams, business or
legal affairs and renewing personal energy. Be sure to gather your Marigolds
for magickal workings at noon. A fresh Marigold flower can be worn to court
for a favorable outcome of a trial. If you place Marigold in your mattress,
you will have prophetic dreams… and if you place it under your mattress it
will make whatever you dream come true. Since the Marigold embodies the sun,
it can make a person more attractive and confident. Add Marigold to your
bath water to make this happen. A vase of fresh and bright Marigolds in a
room brings a renewed surge of life to those in the room!
