Imbolc | The Collection

Wheel of the Year: Imbolc which is celebrated on Feb 1st/2nd, is also known as Candalmas or St Brigid's Day.

.

After the bleak, dark days of Winter, it is time for hopeIt is time to let go of the past and to look to the future, clearing out the old, making both outer and inner space for new beginnings. We welcome the growth of the returning light (days getting longer) and witness Life's insatiable appetite for rebirth. There is hope in the air with the promise of renewal, of hidden potential, of earth awakening, and life-force stirring.

.

Fragrance: After the festive notes of Samhain and Yule, Imbolc wipes the slate clean and starts anew with a bespoke blend of lemon, grapefruit, juniper, and fennel essential oils. With a clean, fresh fragrance, Imbolc reminds us of the joy of Springtime.

Storyboard: The storyboard for Imbolc is simple yet filled with hope. The early Spring flowers such as crocus push through the thawing ground. Snowdrops are found in clumps in the woodlands. The mornings are a little lighter and filled with bird song. There are still cold days with snow and frost. The first lambs are in the fields. There is a natural desire to clean, to organise, and to chuck out what is no longer needed.

"Imbolc reminds me of those days when the laundry is drying on the line. All of the windows in the house are open and the Spring sun is gently warming the earth. The days are a little longer and there is hope, hope that Spring and all of its glory is just around the corner." - Mark, founder of Truly Artisan.
