Sunflowers are associated with truth, loyalty, and honesty. If you want to know the truth about something, sleep with a sunflower under your pillow. The next day, before the sun goes down, the truth should be revealed to you. The sunflower is considered a flower of loyalty because day after day, it follows the sun, from east to west. In some folklore magic traditions, it is believed that slipping a bit of sunflower oil or seeds into someone’s food or drink will cause them to be loyal to you.
