The stunning avocado tree (Persea Americana) has an optimistic, enchanting, and comforting aura that effortlessly provides a sense of joy and contentment.

This fruit tree is not only highly nutritious but also delicious and sensual. The oil from the fruit has numerous beautifying benefits, and the bark, leaves, and rinds have medicinal properties. It certainly seems like a tree that one would find in paradise.

Avocados are not only delicious and nutritious but they can also be used to grow new avocado trees. With just a little bit of care, you can have your Avocado tree that will bear fruit for years to come.

Avocado trees are native to Central and South America, and their symbolism has long been associated with a variety of concepts, including love, lust, beauty, fertility, health and peace. Ultimately, the avocado tree is a versatile symbol that can represent a wide range of ideas and concepts.

Avocado tree symbolism has been essential in many cultures and religions throughout history. In this article, we’ll explore the avocado tree and its symbolism and meanings.

About Avocado Trees

The avocado tree is a sight to behold.

Standing tall with beautiful, glossy dark green leaves, they can reach heights of up to 65 feet. The fruits have a unique shape and vary in size, but on average weigh about 8 ounces. Their flesh is creamy and rich and packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals.

But don’t let their delicious taste fool you – the avocado tree has quite a tough history.

Native to Mexico and Central America, the trees were nearly driven to extinction by the expanding cattle industry in the 1800s. Today, however, they are a widely cultivated crop thanks to efforts by conservationists and farmers.

So next time you savour a creamy avocado slice on your sandwich or mix it into your smoothie, don’t forget the tenacious journey that brought it to your plate.

Different Symbolisms of the Avocado Tree

Aside from its beauty and nutrients, the avocado tree is also associated with several different symbolisms.


Could it be that avocados not only make you look good but feel good too? I mean, after all, they are pretty high up on the list of foods containing vital nutrients.

But I think there’s more to it than that; something about the way this fruit look makes me believe eating them regularly could lead to a generally more beautiful and vibrant person.

Furthermore, avocado seed oil is excellent for the skin on your face, scalp, and neck. Try mashing an avocado and spreading it all over as a beautifying mask.

Using a dried avocado pit as a beauty charm is said to be excellent on the vibrational side, especially when used with an attraction-enhancing scent like jasmine, sandalwood or rose.

If it’s sunny and you happen to know where there’s an avocado tree, spend some time quietly contemplating the tree and intentionally letting yourself absorb her beautifying vibes.


The mashed avocado fruit can be used as an ointment to help heal wounds and soothe skin irritations. On an emotional level, guacamole served with tortilla chips can be quite the comfort food to help repair frayed nerves or an aching heart.

Or during a waning moon, you might mentally direct any persistent pain or illness into an avocado pit and then bury it at the base of an avocado tree.


Avocado is commonly known to help people find love. The blossom of the avocado, much like the fruit, is known for its ability to attract love. It is amazing because it can be both feminine and masculine at the same time.

Because of this, you can add avocado flower essence to your bathwater or drinking water to bring more love into your life.


The phoenix is an age-old symbol of rebirth, thought to be born from the ashes of its predecessor. The wood that fuels the Fire in this ancient Egyptian legend was Persea timber – which just so happens to be the same family as the avocado tree.

Furthermore, the fruit nearest related to the avocado was once called the “heart of Horus.” He was a god who would not have had birth if his father Osiris wasn’t resurrected by Isis, his mother and goddess.

Notably, after Osiris’ casket became concealed in the branches of a Persea tree is when he arose again.

There is undoubtedly a connection between trees and rebirth in Egyptian culture, which might be why tree wood was included in ancient funeral bouquets.

This same principle can be seen in Aztec burial sites that contained avocados—demonstrating that the avocado’s representation of birth and new beginnings is not limited to one culture or region.

Sexual Attraction

The Aztecs attributed several lust-inducing powers to avocados, believing that eating the fruit would make it difficult for someone to remain a virgin.

When Spanish explorers introduced the fruit to European settlers, and even when it started becoming popular in the United States, there was a certain fascination (and taboo) attached to eating it.

In the past, avocado growers had to run an ad campaign to dispel rumors that avocados have aphrodisiac qualities for mainstream society to accept them.

Today, we know that avocados are packed full of nutrients that support sexual health. Plus, anyone can tell you that eating an avocado is a very sensual experience.


The ancient Egyptians viewed the Persea tree as being in the realm of the gods, and if you enjoy eating avocados, you might agree that they’re “food of the gods.”

Not only do avocados taste great, but they’re also filled with nutrients like potassium, vitamins, healthy fats, and protein. West Africans often use them as baby food because of how nourishing they are.


The leaf, rind, and pulp of avocados are all shades of green. Avocados not only provide nutrients but also promote fertility in our species by improving lust and sexual health.

Avocados are often thought of as healthy food, but they also can bring wealth and prosperity. To charge an avocado with this magic, hold it in both hands while visualizing your desired outcome.

Once charged, you can eat the avocado or use it in a prosperity ritual. Avocado pits can also be used in rituals and charms, and the flower essence will help amplify your natural ability to attract abundance.
