Anecdotal: As a love talisman Cichorium should be harvested with a stag horn on summer solstice. It is carried to remove obstacles, to promote frugality, and when applied to the body Cichorium aids in securing favors. Cichorium imparts life-giving forces to gardens. It is an invisibility medicine that opens gateways when collected at midnight and metaphorically opens locks for which there is no apparent key. It is a soothing incarnant for intervening against endopsychic wounds. Cichorium can also be rendered into dye.
