The Summer Solstice is the time of maximum light – when the countryside around us revels in colourful and fragrant splendour. This time is known in the Druid tradition as that of Alban Hefin – ‘The Light of Summer’ or ‘The Light of the Shore’.

At Alban Hefin the spiral of the year has expanded to its widest point and now the hours of light are as long as they will ever be. To many Druids it is the turning seasons and the cycle of life, death and rebirth – reflected in the Wheel of the Year in its completeness – which are significant. [1]

The blend has been carefully developed using 9 Herbs,  9 Essential Oils and 4 Wood Powders that are sacred or significant to the time of Alban Hefin.

Click the Ingredients tab above to find out which ingredients were included in the making of this blend.

The incense sticks are 19cm long and come in small (1.5mm diameter) in a pack of 27 or large (3.5mm diameter) in a pack of 11. The incense coils are 55mm in diameter and have a burn length of 300mm and come in a pack of 7.

We now have a Loose Incense blend for burning on a charcoal, or try the NEW Bakhoor Incense Balls, also for burning on a charcoal.

Why not try some with a Sample Pack!
