Blossom Magic

Spring Blossoms

Blossom is the flowers that appear on a tree before the fruit.

The blossom or flowers from any tree or plant can be popped into a vase to dress up your altar or dried or pressed to use in magical workings, incense blends and crafts. Dried petals and flowers can also be pressed onto candles quite effectively or steeped in oil to create anointing oils and perfumes.
