I have Lilac trees/bushes in my backyard that are currently in bloom and I'm looking to find more information on their magickal properties. What can they be used for? Does anyone have any ideas on how I can incorporate them into my practice (through making oils, teas, using them in spells, etc)? I'm also open to using them for cooking/baking. I'm already planning on using them to add decoration and fragrance to my home a bit, but I'm hoping to use them in other ways as well!
I've been told they stay in bloom for just a few weeks, ending sometime in June. Is there some way I can preserve some of the blossoms for later use?
