The name for the festival of the Spring Equinox in Druidry is Alban Eilir, meaning the “The Light of the Earth”.
As the Sun grows warmer, so life begins to show through the soil. Plants are seen by some as inanimate greenery with no actual feelings and life force. But Druids see life in all living things, from rocks and stones, to rivers and springs, plants and trees – all life is sacred.
Have you ever thought about how you recognise the beginning of Spring? Is it the plant life? The weather? How does a plant know when it is time to grow? It cannot tell the time or see a calendar. Yet it knows. If it has senses, then it has consciousness, if it has consciousness then it is more than an inanimate life form. So it is the return of life to the Earth that is celebrated at Alban Eilir, the time of balance. 
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 Eilir.
