This delicious recipe is best enjoyed in front of a roaring fire!
1 Bottle of Semi-sweet red wine (such as Merlot or Malbec)
1 Ounce of Mulling Spices
1/4 Cup of Honey
1/4 of Orange Juice
Garnish: 6″ Organic Cinnamon Sticks (optional)
In some Wassail traditions, the spiced cider was offered as an ancient honor to the trees. In wintertime, wassailers would prepare the traditional wassail – soaking pieces of bread, cake or toast in it – and travel from apple orchard to apple orchard in effort to ensure a good harvest for the coming year. Wassail-soaked pieces of bread or toast were then buried at the trees’ roots or hung in the trees’ branches to appease the tree spirits and feed them well until the next harvest. This traditional wassail recipe features hard cider, sugar-roasted apples, brandy and sweet spices. It is a simple, old-fashioned recipe. We found this wonderful recipe by Jenny McGruther at nourishedkitchen.com!

Unfortunately this will increase the cost for our Canadian customers since FEDEX shipping is significantly more expensive than shipping via USPS (which partners with Canada Post), but our main concern now is making sure that customers receive their packages.
We will be keeping a close eye on the situation with Canada Post and will once again offer our regular lower-priced USPS shipping options once that situation is resolved. Thank you so much in advance for your understanding and patience!

Please remember that no matter what you decide to do, be safe! Here are some fire tips from a former firefighter to help you have a fun and safe experience: Fire pit safety tips
Indoor Cauldron Fire
If your only option is to be indoors, you can still have the fire experience with an indoor cauldron fire! You will need the following items
It is best to use a cast-iron cauldron, since one won’t be too hard to get and it can withstand the heat. Don’t use aluminum, since it sometimes melts or can even catch on fire. Never make an indoor fire in a cauldron that is painted, since burning or even very hot paint will produce dangerous fumes.
Use half (by volume, not weight) alcohol and epsom salts. Always put the cauldron on a fireproof surface (such as a hearth, other tile surface, metal, etc.) and make sure that the only nearby objects are reasonably heat-resistant. Taper candles, if placed too close, will bend or even melt. Votives in glass holders work better.
Always keep a bucket of water nearby in case things somehow get out of hand. A big box of baking soda also works well. Let the cauldron burn out by itself (how long this takes depends on the size of the cauldron and how much fuel you have put into it), wait till it is cool, and then soak the inside in water to loosen the grayish mass of salts that’s been fused together by the fire. After letting it soak overnight it’s not too hard to clean.
If it’s necessary to put the cauldron out suddenly, covering it with a fireproof lid is the easiest and least-messy method, but be careful not to burn yourself while putting the lid on. One of those big leather work gloves might be good to keep around.
Now that you have a fire, what can you do?
Once you have your fire pit – there are many different ways to incorporate this into your ritual!
What are the Nine Sacred Woods?
The nine sacred woods – or nine sacred woods of the bonfire are part of a traditional Celtic ceremony. They represented the first nine tress in the Celtic calendar and are generally listed in the long version of the Wiccan Rede by Doreen Valiente. Over the years, this has been changed to a Nine Sacred Herbs incense, which you can make yourself or purchase from us here: Nine Sacred Woods Incense. This blend is a nice way to add a Celtic touch to any bonfire celebration!
As the sun slowly-but surely-rises on a new year, we take the time to reflect on all we have done and all we can make better. A new year gives us the chance to focus on improvement, whether that’s rededicating to our spirituality, learning something new, or following a new path all together. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Cast a spell for better luck:
-Ginger, a fire herb, is used to draw in money and success. The fire and Mars connection adds urgency and potency to the spell.
-Marigold (also known as Calendula) is a Sun and fire herb. It’s a powerful herb for success in general.
-Cinquefoil (also known as five finger grass), a fire and Jupiter herb, is excellent for increasing luck, money, and general success.
-Try combining all three as a spell mix for more potency, and don’t forget the green candles.
Carry a stone:
-Amethyst is a perfect stone to halt anxiety, especially when beginning something new.
-Sodalite helps in any intellectual pursuit, opening the mind and allowing for greater information retention. It’s sometimes called the student stone.
-Carnelion is a courage maker, instilling motivation and dispelling negative thought. Carry it when you need a little extra push.
Restructure or rededicate:
-Meditate on the core values of your path. Do they fit your needs? Do they encourage growth?
-If you’re stagnating, try a different way of doing something. Try more, or less, elaborate rituals. Get back to your roots, to the things that made you start on your path.
-Study something new. You don’t have to abandon your current path, but try incorporating another path’s ways into yours. Take something different and make it your own.]]>
