Samhain, Halloween as we know it, is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from October 31st to November 1st. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice.
Scented with spiced pumpkin and hot, buttery rum, this candle represents turning inward for reflection as we enter the darkest part of the year, the winter months where hibernation and renewal occurs. The perfect time for self-reflection and refinement to burst forth in the spring with a renewed sense of self.
