First, look for the fluffiest white puffball that you can find and pick the stem carefully to retain the magic. Next, determine the direction of the breeze to ensure good flight for your wish and hold that fluffy puff ball near your mouth. For the strongest magic, you must blow away all of the seeds in breath. Now take a deep breath, make your wish and blow. Taking the time to watch until the last seed is out of sight helps the wish come true.

No one knows for sure how or why people started making wishes on dandelions. These flowers have been around for thousands of years, and there are the many folklore superstitions that have been attached to dandelions such as granting wishes when you blow on those fluffy white puffballs. Some include dreaming about dandelions or carrying dandelions in a bridal bouquet will bless you with good luck. Many people believe that if you blow every seed of the dandelion off while thinking of a person you love, it means that they love you back. Another legend is that your loved one can feel your love – when blow those white seeds in their direction. Conversely, if you then blow on the bloom and there is at least one remaining seed on it, it means your loved one is thinking of you too.
