Love in the Times of Narcissus

This brings us to a very pertinent part of the story of Narcissus (especially to the context of our interaction). The white-petaled-flower, that was left behind in the myth and the flower that we see in the right side of Dali’s painting, are the same. The flower/plant is called Narcissus or Daffodils. The myth of Narcissus doesn’t have anything to do with its name, but the similarities are uncanny. Daffodils are known to have medicinal properties and, for centuries, they have been used to cure diseases, such as whooping cough, joint diseases, cold, asthma, and, recently, it is being considered to help Alzheimer’s. The plant is said to carry pain-relief properties. Liriope is also a grass-like flowering plant named after our nymph, and it contains medicinal properties. The upper-part of the plant is often used as an expectorant. The root is used for anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic purposes. Korea is known to use Liriope’s properties for building stamina.
