The essence of the blackthorn helps absorption of energy necessary for life.
Brings hope and joy.
In Irish tales heroes were aided in a spell of protection under the blackthorn tree- if they threw a twig of Blackthorn after them as they left for battle it would root and form an impregnable edge or woods, twarthing the enemy.
The ashes of a Blackthorn burned at a New Year’s ceremony would fertilize the fields and scattering then on wreaths of mistletoe would bring luck to the coming year.
Where’s a Blackthorn tree near it’s sister Hawthorn plant, the site is truly magical!
