Lughnasadh ~ First Harvest
Lughnasadh symbolizes the fullness of life! Lughnasadh
The Festival of the God Lugh, or 'Lammas,' (Loaf Mass - the Christian version of this holiday) celebrated on the 1st of August, marks the midpoint between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox, ushering in the 'dark half' or the 'dying half' of the year. A celebration of the bountiful grain, fruits and vegetables that are ripe and ready to be harvested and enjoyed!
The first loaves of the new harvest were traditionally baked at this time, so breads are usually the main 'theme' in this feast. Another staple at these celebrations is cakes and ale. One way to celebrate Lughnasadh is with a bread communion in which everyone attending brings a favorite item of fresh-baked bread to share with others. For those lucky enough to have home brewers in their social circles, it's the perfect occasion to sample their creations.
Lughnasadh is a time for celebrating hearth, home, family and friends. Even though the weather is still warm, this celebration acknowledges that winter is on the way, and it's time to prepare for its arrival.
Mystic Pines' Lughnasadh is a blend of Fir Needle, Oakmoss, Orange, Tonka Bean oils. This creation is crystal blessed with Black Obsidian (Aids in clearing energy, grounds and balances Chakras), Citrine (Promotes motivation, creativity and encourages self-expression), Peridot (Opens the heart to joy, new relationships and enhances confidence) Malachite (Releases inhibitions and develops empathy with others), Tigers Eye (For courage, personal power and confidence) complete the dressing of this 100% American-grown soy & beeswax candle handcrafted with love in Phoenix, AZ.
The enchantment on the front of our Lughnasadh candle has been weaved by our dear friend Laney from The Faeries Realm ~ Enchanted Organics.
As always, 30% from the purchase of this candle will be donated to a charitable cause!

HOUSEKEEPING: Candles burn best (and longest), when you allow a wax 'pool' to extend completely to the edge of the glass, otherwise your candle will tunnel straight down and the life of your candle will diminish greatly. Ceiling fans and floor fans (any type of moving air!) can also affect the way your candle burns.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER: All Mystic Pines Candle Co., candles are sold as curios only. Every soy wax item is lovingly hand-poured and hand blessed. In no way, shape, or form do we guarantee any particular outcome. You must add your own pure love and positive intention to the products in order to make them work for you!
CAUTION: Never leave a candle burning unattended. Certain candles may contain crystals and herbs that could potentially 'spark' or crack the glass. Always burn your candles, votives and tea lights on a fireproof dish when possible.
