In historic times Calendula was more often used for magical purposes than medicinal ones. One 16th-century potion containing Calendula claimed to reveal fairies. An unmarried woman with two suitors would take a blend of powdered Calendulamarjoramwormwood and thyme simmered in honey and white wine used as an ointment in a ritual to reveal her true match.
