Some magickal herbs could help you with healing magic, while others can help remove hexes or enchantments. So let us take a look at Calendula Magical Properties.
What is Calendula?
Calendula is frequently located at graves. It is widely used in bouquets for the people that passed away since it is believed that the light collected by their flowers will accompany them wherever they go.
This magical plant is known as the flower of every month.
It grows everywhere, as long as there’s plenty of the sun.
However, it is also called “dead flower” due to what has been explained above.
Below, I’ll frequently use a word marigold, instead of calendula. The reason for this is the fact that marigold is actually calendula.
Calendula Magickal Origins
Different legends are related to this magical plant.
One of these legends tells that a Greek maiden in love with Apollo waited every night in search of the first ray of the sun every day. One day Apollo noticed her, and he gave her the affection. However, the love he gave her was so strong that she died by this affection (sun rays). On the place where she died, marigolds were born.
There’s another legend about Apollo. In this one, four nymphs were in love with him. They fought because of jealousy and in the end, Artemis, Apollo’s sister, turned them into marigolds.
But speaking of their tradition in history, the Greeks used calendulas or marigold to decorate houses in celebrations.
They also formed collections as a form of praise to the sun gods.
Calendula Magical Properties and Uses
It also serves to make menstruation less painful. Women can take them in the mixture (tea) a week before the menstrual cycle begins and, thus, have less pain. Similarly, they can avoid any delay or other complications.
If you have a cold, you can also drink them as tea. Even if you get the flu since it has sweaty properties. In this case, you should take it twice a day mixed with honey.
Uses in Practical Magic
This wildflower does not have a particularly pleasant smell, but it does not cease to possess magical properties. It has excellent healing properties, but it is also used in other kinds of magical rituals.
Currently, many people use it to improve the quality of sleep. It also protects you from evil spirits if you place it under the pillow before going to sleep.
In ancient times it also served to discover the adulteries of wives.
Women in the church were told that, if they were faithful, they agreed to remove calendula (marigold) from a bouquet before leaving. If they did, they would be free. If they didn’t do it, it was a sign of his infidelity.

Calendula can be used to make a refreshing and cleaning floral bath that is capable of generating a lot of positive energy in us.
