Similar in energy and appearance to the European Blackthorn tree, its lovely white flowers contrasted against its dangerous thorns represents the play between life and death. It carries many associations with the Fae, death, and the underworld. Blackthorn was believed to be used for black magic and cursing. Witch burning pyres were even fueled by Blackthorn wood in Inquisitional Spain. Yet, as we mentioned above, the tree retained some of it’s protective associations and these protective household uses persisted in Eastern Europe
