pronounced "Sow-wen"

October 31st-November 1st

Samhain, often recognised as the Witch's New Year, is a revered time that marks the conclusion of the harvest season and ushers in the depths of winter. This festival embodies the intricate balance between life and death, serving as a poignant reminder of the cyclical nature of all things, where endings pave the way for new beginnings.


Samhain's roots stretch back to ancient Celtic traditions, acting as a beacon of cultural heritage. Historically, it was believed that the boundaries separating our world from the spirit realm became especially thin during this time. This ethereal veil, gossamer and delicate, allowed the living to communicate more easily with deceased loved ones, honouring ancestors and paying respects to spirits who had passed on.


To truly embrace the spirit of Samhain, consider setting up a small altar or dedicated space in your home to honour and remember your ancestors. Add photos, heirlooms, or any memorabilia that holds sentimental value. Light a candle in their memory, inviting warmth and light into your space. Another beautiful way to participate is to write down messages or memories of loved ones passed and safely burn them, letting the smoke carry your thoughts to the other side. Carving pumpkins, a nod to the more modern traditions of Halloween, can also be a joyful way to celebrate. By creating a jack-o-lantern, you're not only taking part in centuries-old traditions but also paying homage to nature sprites by crafting these glowing guardians that stand watch during the mystical Samhain night.

December 20th-23rd, depending on year

Yule, also known as the Winter Solstice, celebrates the rebirth of the sun after the longest night of the year. As the days start to slowly lengthen, Yule brings hope and rejuvenation, symbolising the persistent return of light and warmth to the world even in the heart of winter's chill. This festival celebrates nature's resolute resilience and the undeniable promise of renewed life.


Stemming from ancient Norse traditions, Yule is a testament to the adaptability and perseverance of early cultures in the face of challenging, icy winters. The Norse would honour the god, Odin, during this time, as well as celebrate the impending return of the sun, a beacon of hope in the cold Scandinavian landscape. The very word "Yule" is believed to derive from the Norse word "jól," which refers to the 12 day festival celebrated around the solstice.


Central to Yule traditions were the Yule logs, large pieces of wood that would be ornately decorated and then ignited. The log's burning symbolised the return of warmth and light. Its ashes would be saved for protection or used as fertiliser in the spring, creating a bond with the earth's cyclical rhythms. Bring the spirit of Yule into your home by decorating with evergreens like holly and mistletoe. These plants represent endurance and vitality amid the barren winter. Crafting wreaths, garlands, or centerpieces with these evergreens not only brings nature indoors but also ensures that the spirits of nature and the sprites are celebrated and revered during the cold months.

February 1st or 2nd

Celebrating the first signs of spring and the return of the sun, Imbolc is a festival of light and purification. It marks the midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. As the earth slowly awakens from its winter slumber, Imbolc heralds the promise of brighter days, renewed life, and the impending fertility of the land. It's a timely reminder of the cyclical rebirth in nature and the rejuvenating power of the sun.


Stemming from ancient Celtic traditions, Imbolc was initially dedicated to the goddess Brigid, often associated with fire, fertility, and healing. Brigid's crosses, made from rushes or straw, were commonly created during this time as symbols of protection and prosperity for the coming year.


Embrace the spirit of Imbolc by crafting a Brigid's cross for protection or lighting candles to welcome the sun's return. Engage with the season by planting seeds or bulbs, symbolising growth and renewal. Consider a rejuvenating spring cleaning or setting fresh intentions for the coming months. As you refresh your spaces, introducing a few plants or greenery not only echoes the emerging life outdoors but also supports the well-being of the nature sprites.

March 20th or 21st

Welcoming the spring equinox, Ostara is a vibrant celebration of balance and rejuvenation. As day and night stand in perfect harmony, Ostara symbolises new beginnings, growth, and the blossoming of nature. With the land coming alive in a burst of colours and fragrances, it's a tribute to nature's cyclic renewal and the invigorating warmth that banishes winter's last chills.


Rooted deeply in ancient European folklore, Ostara is named after the Germanic goddess, Eostre, celebrated as the deity of dawn, rebirth, and fertility. Stories tell of Eostre's power to bring forth spring and the renewed life it heralds. This festival resonates with symbols of rebirth and life, mirroring the resurgence of nature and the balance of light.


Celebrate Ostara by creating a vibrant altar adorned with fresh flowers, seeds, and crystals that symbolise the season. Plant new botanicals in your garden, marking the growth and renewal Ostara represents. As nature awakens around you, consider meditative walks in blooming parks or forests, tuning into the sprites' joy as the world comes alive. Crafting nature-inspired decorations, such as wreaths of fresh flowers or paper lanterns, can also help immerse you in the season's spirit.

May 1st

Dancing on the cusp of spring and summer, Beltane, celebrated on May 1st, is a joyous celebration of fertility, love, and fire. As life reaches its peak of vitality, Beltane embodies the union of the Earth's energies, kindling passion and growth in every living being. It's a vibrant nod to the peak of nature's lifecycle, ensuring prosperity and abundance for the coming months.


Deeply entrenched in ancient Celtic traditions, Beltane is one of the four major fire festivals. Historically, fires were lit in honour of the sun, believed to guarantee the summer's bounty and protect the community. Rituals around Beltane often revolved around fertility and the magical union of the god and goddess, blessing the earth with fertile ground and promising harvests.


Join in the Beltane festivities by lighting a bonfire or candle, symbolising the fire that ignites life and passion.

June 20th-23rd, depending on year

Celebrating the zenith of the sun's power, Litha, or the Summer Solstice, is the longest day and the shortest night of the year. This festival honours the sun's strength and the abundant fertility of the land. As we bask in the warmth of the season, Litha stands as a radiant midpoint of the year, symbolising the fullness of life, the joy of long sunlit days, and the fleeting nature of time, as from hereon, the days will gradually shorten.


The ancient Druids hailed Litha as a time of celebration, marking the marriage of the Earth and the Sun. Stonehenge, the ancient stone circle in England, is aligned perfectly with the solstice sunrise, making it a focal point for ceremonies during this time. Throughout history, many cultures have lit bonfires on hilltops to pay homage to the sun, symbolising its burning power and the life-giving energy it bestows upon the earth.


Relish the fullness of the sun's glory by spending time outdoors, perhaps organising a picnic or a nature walk. It's the perfect season to reconnect with nature, basking in the sun, and feeling the grass underfoot. Lighting a candle can be a symbolic gesture to honour the sun's peak strength. Planting sun-loving plants or herbs can be a delightful way to engage with the season's energy, nurturing the well-being of the nature sprites.

pronounced "Loo-na-sa"

August 1st

Honouring the early grain harvest and the descent of the sun's power, Lughnasadh, also known as Lammas, signifies the transition from the high heat of summer to the soft, approaching whispers of autumn. This celebration marks the time when the first grains are ready to be harvested and when the earth yields its fruits for the season. It serves as a poignant reminder of the cyclical patterns of nature, where death and rebirth are intrinsically linked.


Named after the Celtic god Lugh, this festival commemorates his mother, Tailtiu, who died from exhaustion after clearing the lands of Ireland for agriculture. The Celts would celebrate with games and feasts, honouring the bond between the sun god and the earth goddess. Bonfires, handfasting ceremonies, and visits to holy wells were traditional ways to mark this time, drawing upon the energies of the earth and sun as they move towards their autumnal embrace.


Celebrate Lughnasadh by baking bread using fresh grains, symbolising the fruits of your labor and the blessings of the harvest. Engaging in nature walks, observing the subtle changes in the landscape, or even crafting with materials like wheat, corn, or barley can help immerse oneself in the spirit of the season. Planting fall-harvesting plants or setting intentions for the waning year can be a beautiful way to connect with the energies of this time, ensuring the nature sprites continue to thrive in harmony.

Lunasa fragrance

September 21st-23rd, depending on year

Marking the Autumn Equinox, Mabon is a time of balance, reflection, and gratitude. As day and night stand in perfect equilibrium, the land starts its shift from the bustling vibrancy of summer to the cool, contemplative aura of autumn. It's a period for honouring the sacrifices and gifts of the past seasons and preparing for the dormant months ahead. Mabon is an opportunity to celebrate the cyclical dance of nature, where every end promises a new beginning.


Rooted in ancient Celtic traditions, Mabon is named after the Welsh god Mabon ap Modron, representing youth, freedom, and the harmonious balance of light and dark. Historically, it was a time to pay respects to the aging deities and the spirit world, acknowledging their role in the earth's cycles. Communities would gather to share the bounty of the harvest, offer gratitude, and partake in rituals signifying the descent of the Goddess into the Underworld.


Embrace Mabon by adorning your spaces with autumnal colours and harvest symbols like apples, pomegranates, and marigolds. Hosting a gratitude ritual, where you reflect on blessings and set intentions for the upcoming winter, can foster a deeper connection to the season's essence. Planting winter bulbs or collecting seeds for the next year's planting not only prepares your garden for the colder months but also ensures a haven for the nature sprites during winter's embrace.

Equinox fragrance

Transcend into the essence of Mabon with our Equinox fragrance. Crafted to mirror the balance and transformation of the Autumn Equinox, this scent weaves tales of ancient rituals, the harmonious dance of light and shadow, and the mystical Nature Sprites that cherish this season's serene elegance.
