Come and join in our herby Solstice workshop. Make magickal lotions and potions for the festive season!
The Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year, when the wheel turns and leads us into winter. It is a day to celebrate the return of the Sun. The Solstice is traditionally a time of celebration, gift-giving, feasting, making wreaths and giving thanks. It is a time of Mistletoe and love – using evergreens for protection throughout the colder months.
The Solstice is on a magickal date this year 21:12 and takes place exactly at 22:22pm. If you know about numbers, this is a powerfully creative time. Using fresh and dried herbs, resins and oils, you’ll learn about the magickal uses of a wide variety of plants and herbs connected, since ancient times, to the Solstice – and how they can help you manifest at this time.
You’ll be getting hands-on making all manner of products you can use – including;
Magickal evergreeen and crystal wreath or candle table decoration (you choose!) for peace, joy and love!
Mojo Bag – to hang above the fire or on the tree for prosperity and health blessings
Magickal Perfume Oil for the Solstice – wealth, love or health for 2019 – you choose your formula!
As well as the above, we’ll be testing a wide range of herbal syrups and potions for mixing with alcoholic and non-alcholic drinks. I’ll explain the effect that each has on you and your guests. You’ll get to take your favourites home along with the recipes. We’ll also be discussing winter cold and flu prevention and hangover cures!
Afterwards, you’ll be taking home a collection of all your hand-crafted products – just in time for the festivities!
