Origin of the name "AppleWood":
The Celts considered apples and the apple tree to be love symbols. Even the formation of the tree trunk in her various poses was said to have a female form, and it was considered a beacon of fertility. To ensure fertility, couples were decorated with the apple blossoms and the apple tree branches. Applewood was often burned during fertility rites and festivals as a demonstration of a bountiful abundance, ensuring the continuation of healthy families.
