The Chrysanthemum is synonymous with the darker autumnal months. This beautiful flower is a symbol of happiness, fidelity, and long life.

There are variations in meaning, depending on the hue.

In France and Germany, a pure white flower represents truth, while a bright yellow bloom in Japan is a symbol of light and is associated with the sun’s energising rays. Should a single yellow petal be found at the bottom of a wine glass, then the one drinking it is insured a happy and healthy life.

Chrysanthemum flower spell for happiness

The chrysanthemum tea is a floral blend known for its soothing properties. If possible, choose yellow flowers to enhance the spell’s power. You will need around five flower heads, hot water and honey to sweeten.

  1. Wash the flower heads, then pop in a bowl and cover with boiling water.
  2. Leave the flower to steep for 10 minutes, then using a sieve drain the liquid into a cup or mug.
  3. Add a spoonful of honey to sweeten and stir.
  4. As you sip, picture yourself and your loved ones happy and healthy.
