Thistles are also called Pixies’ Gloves, because the fae are said to use the tiny flowers as gloves.

Thyme is associated with fairies. Wearing a sprig of wild thyme, or essential oil of thyme, is said to help one to see fairies. If you place springs of thyme on your closed eyes and sleep upon a fairy mound, this will supposedly guarantee your seeing fairies.

Wild thyme, gathered from the side of a fairy mound, is especially potent for use in fairy magic.
