The name for the festival of the Winter Solstice in Druidry is Alban Arthan, meaning the “Light of Arthur”.

In this darkest time of the year we celebrate the return of the Divine Child, the Mabon, the rebirth of the golden solstice Sun, who will bring warmth, light and life back to Earth again. The Wheel of the Year revolves beyond death and towards new light and new life. [1]

The Incense blend has been carefully developed using all natural ingredients including 9 Herbs,  9 Essential Oils and 3 Wood Powders that are sacred or significant to the time of Alban Arthan.
