Description

Imbolc is often seen as the first of three Spring festivals. It is hard sometimes to think of Spring in what feels like the depths of Winter. But if we look at the ground we can see the first shoots of green beginning to reach towards the Sun. The Light of the Sun in the Wheel of the Year stands within the Cone of Darkness. This is a time of hope and preparation. This is the time of the growing of the Light.

This Feast of Imbolc is sacred to the Lady, the child-woman, the virgin who is known as Brighid and Athena and Britomartis and names without number. She it was who brought forth the Child of Light out of the Darkness in the darkest of the Dark Days. She it is who has nurtured the Child and now brings him forth as the new hope. She it is who has prepared the sleeping Earth to bring forth her bounty in the Summer which even here has its first beginnings. [1]

The blend has been carefully developed using 9 Herbs, 9 Essential Oils and 3 Wood Powders that are sacred or significant to Brigid and the time of Imbolc.

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.
