Hey guys! Where I live it's really beautiful out already, I've been cleaning up my herb garden, and there are small patches of small purple flowers everywhere.
What I really enjoy is all of the cherry blossoms though, most ornamental, but very pretty, and give off a sweet smell.
My question is, is there anything that you know about cherry blossoms or what you like to use them for? I was thinking of pressing some, but I'd like to maybe do something with them before they're all gone!
You can make a tincture with cherry blossoms and alcohol, just place about half a cup of blossoms in a jar and cover with vodka. Shake the jar once a day for a week and then replace the blossoms with fresh flowers, and repeat for another week. Strain and bottle.
Also if you look at Japanese sakura cookery they use cherry blossoms in a lot of their sweets and syrups.
I believe that cherry blossoms are mainly used in love spells and possibly healing.I've seen a spell called "Cherry Blossom Love Potion"by SoulEternity(but if should omit the spirit if your under 21.)I hope this helps.

Cherry blossoms can indeed be used in love spells. They can be crushed and mixed with other ingredients to create incense. Or they can be made into a tincture or put into food to be ingested. If you're going to ingest them, make certain that the blossoms have not been sprayed with any insecticide.
