In bloom this month
This month you might see lilacs beginning to bloom all around you! Lilacs have a beautiful, delicate scent, and they’re perfect to bring in the promise of new, sweeter beginnings, new love, banishing negative energy, and for protection. Plant it on your property to protect your home from ill intent, malevolent spirits or misfortune. Bring some cut branches and keep it in your home in a vase to bring that beautiful energy in - this is perfect right after some spring cleaning and cleansing!

Method 2: Small flowers can be spread out on a paper plate or paper towel and leave them for a few days to a week, and they’ll dry up on their own.
Of course, if you have a dehydrator, that’s much easier - but if you already have one of those, why did you keep reading this?
