Lammas/Lughnasadh is celebrated on August 1 and marks a time when the first harvests are being reaped and falls at the halfway point between Litha - the summer solstice - and Mabon - the fall equinox.
Lughnasadh is named after the Celtic god Lugh, who is God of arts and crafts, a warrior, and worshiped as a sun God, and is celebrated with athletic games, handfasting rituals, dancing and offerings to the Gods.
Lammas is an old English term for "loaf mass" which referred to the consecration of a loaf of bread to bless the abundance of the earth and to ward against hunger during the winter months.
In Celtic lore, this Sabbat was a celebration of either Lugh's wedding/handfasting or as a funeral rite in honour of his foster mother, Tailtiu, who is said to have cleared and prepared the lands in Ireland for crops. This Sabbat marks a time where we reap what we had sown at the spring Sabbat of Beltane.
Made with a blend of basil, thyme and sage essential oils in a base of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, use this oil in any spells and rituals aimed at abundance, completion, prosperity, good fortune and blessings. This oil can be used to dress candles, in a bath, applied directly to the body, or in whatever way best suits your practices, preferences and intentions.
All oil blends are diluted to 5%, which means they are safe to use directly on the skin and in the bath. However, it is advisable to dab a small amount of the oil on the inside of your arm where your elbow bends to test for any reaction or sensitivity first.
