It is impossible to look at a daisy without thinking back to childhood. I am sure we all made daisy chains? and have innocently picked a daisy saying “he loves me, he loves me not” and of course the last petal picked gave you your answer.
Maybe it is where the inspiration for the song Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do!” came from? When our little Grandson was a baby for some reason he loved that song singing these words was the only thing that would settle him (think he is an old soul for sure) ….
Give me your answer do!
I’m half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage,
But you’ll look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle built for two !
The Colour Meaning of a Daisy
The primary colour of a daisy is white with a bright yellow centre. This is a lovely combination symbolically…the yellow heart of the Daisy’s spirit fills with joy and solar energy. It stimulates thinking and supports honesty and loyalty. Around its yellow core are the Daisy’s white petals which shine with the light of goodness, faith, pureness and clarity. My Mum used to say that Daisies were ‘messengers for angels” and since angels are often depicted in these colours of white with golden haloes, that is maybe how this flower got its connection to the Etheric realms.

They were often used in folk medicine. The flower heads were stepped for treating colds and some healers recommend them for kidney problems and arthritis pain. Daisy tea improves the metabolic and digestive system, but it has a diuretic effect so don’t drink it at bedtime!!
Of course Chamomile is part of the daisy family and has a long history (since ancient Egypt) as a medicinal plant. Chamomile tea is often used for a calming effect encouraging sleep, as an anti-inflammatory, and for stomach problems. It is the flowers (usually dried) that are used. They should be steeped at very close to boiling, covered to prevent escape of volatile oils, and then crushed before straining. German Chamomile, native to Europe and Asia and introduced to North America and Australia, is the species most used for tea.
