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. [1]

The blend has been carefully developed using 9 Essential Oils that are sacred or significant to the time of Alban Eilir, and is for use in an Oil Burner, Aroma Pendant or for anointing both people and sacred tools.

If you want a more subtle and pure fragrance than burning an incense, then this oil blend is ideal. It is available as the pure essential oil blend, or as a dilution in Hazelnut Oil for anointing.
