Chrysanthemum is masculine in nature and resonates with the energy of the Sun and the element of fire. Chrysanthemum has been used for burial rituals and is a suitable decoration for Samhain and for ancestral altars. The dried flower heads of chrysanthemum can be burned during house blessing ceremonies. Often associated with protection, particularly of the metaphysical sort, chrysanthemums come in handy when working with the spirit world. In ancient times Greeks would wear garlands of chrysanthemums to keep away those dreaded “evil spirits. For the modern Garden Witch, the mum is a fabulous, protective fall flower that wards the home and keeps away wandering ghosts. An infusion of dried chrysanthemum petals has been used as a tea to lower high blood pressure brought on by stress and as an eyewash to relieve redness and pain from eyestrain. You can also place the whole flower over your eyelids for the same purpose or make a warm compress of the petals. Chrysanthemum tea can also be used as an aid to a detox regimen and to help support the immune system in its fight against the common cold and other respiratory infections and fever. It is rich in antioxidants. It is also used to relieve insomnia due to stress or anger.
