A familiar plant, dried Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale) is a great herb to use for resilience, strength, and stability. This hardy little weed teaches us about growth and transformation, reminding us that we can grow and thrive anywhere. It also helps us focus on our goals so we don't give up and stay productive.
Dandelion is also great for opening doors between realms, so you can work with it during divination, while working on psychic development, or communicating with the spiritual world.
And, of course, dandelion is perfect for manifestation. That's why we make a wish when we blow the seeds off of a dandelion puff.
Magickal Properties of Dried Dandelion Root
- open doors between realms
- psychic development
- spirit communication
This certified USDA Organic Dandelion Root, also known as Taraxacum officinale, bears a sun-yellow flower head (which is actually composed of hundreds of tiny flowers) typical of the Asteraceae family, that closes in the evening or during cloudy weather and opens back up in the morning, much like its cousin calendula.
When the flower is closed, to some, it looks like a pig's nose, hence one of its names, 'swine's snout.' It is a perennial herb with deeply cut leaves that form a basal rosette, somewhat similar to another family member, the wild lettuce, and has a thick tap root which is dark brown on the outside and white on the inside. It is native to most of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa, naturalized all over the world, and commonly found growing alongside roads and in lawns as a common weed.
