Even if the weather doesn't co-operate quite yet, were almost there.
As Ostara and Easter approaches, it’s an amazing time to remember springtime traditions that have been passed down through generations. Whether you’re Pagan, Christian or something in between, this spiritual holiday has a rich history of celebration that resonates with many people from many walks of life. The ancient origins of Ostara evoke feelings of nostalgia and longing for the symbolism behind its celebratory rituals — in honour of growth, new beginnings and hope for the future. With so much uncertainty in our world today, reflecting on how these ancient festivals were intended to bring us closer to nature can be immensely comforting. Let's explore the little things while celebrating the deeper meaning behind Easter today.
Celebrate with Herbs and Home Decor
This season also calls us to remember our inner child; to tap into that source inside ourselves that has never faded away. As adults we often forget how important it is to make time for fun and play—to laugh with friends, walk outside, or just stay in bed all day watching Netflix. Take this time now to plan some fun activities with the ones you love or just you. Try planting seeds for your window sill for a first time, have a beach fire and let go of what isn't serving you, or get lost in an escape room. Allow yourself to see the beauty in each moment when you can let go of expectations and just be present.
As spring returns, it’s a reminder that it’s time to celebrate rebirth and renewal. Bunnies, lambs, eggs and gardens ,there are so many ways to welcome back the change of seasons, from candles that bring peace and relaxation to rustic home decor that adds a touch of nature indoors. This year, we are excited to release our new sabbath edition candle for Easter—bringing optimism and perfect for any joyous celebration. Plus, we have herbal medicine options like electuaries, that can help you detoxify and get ready for springtime activities. Read on to find out more!

Midsommer has been a staple and fan favourite, but this year we are excited to
make these ancient Sabbath editions permanent , and introducing our newest offering " Spring Equinox, our official candle of Easter ".

The combination of these ingredients can only be described as full of optimism , reminiscent , and sure to bring joy into your home this Equinox. This 100% soy candle is perfect for a fun Easter morning or peaceful family dinner.
Herbal Medicine Options start now
This year, we have decided to bring more herbal medicine options from our own hands and respected practitioners to our shelves, starting with an ancient avenue of medicine known as an electuary; an electuary is a local honey blended by hand with root powders, leaves, and herbal medicine taken internally via teas, stirred into water or just by the spoon full (my favourite is in hot milk). These herbal remedies can be used as part of a natural detoxification process, to increase virility, or for better sleep as you prepare your body for springtime activities like gardening and outdoor activities.
