In mythology, apples are associated with immortality and health, and an apple branch bearing unopened blossoms was considered a magical key to the land of the dead. Apple blossoms are also associated with love magic, as well as themes of fertility, prosperity, and abundance. You can certainly buy these commercially, but if you have access to an apple tree, gathering the blossoms in the spring is a great way to add to your herbal magic collection.
