Our labors in life produce more life. Just as wheat is essential, so are our efforts in growing and harvesting. There is not one thing on this entire earth which exists alone. Each is dependent upon the other. From the Latin essentia, meaning essence, every single human, creature, stone, plant, grain of wheat, possesses an intrinsic nature which is indispensable— each is essential.
With a bounty of life’s nourishments before you, how shall you honor the essential?
Spice, herbs and an underlying sweetness are all pleasingly balanced between Patchouli, Lavender, and Lemongrass.
Lammas is celebrated on August 2nd. Rituals include observing the fruits of our labors via reflection upon the year’s work thus far, bread making, harvesting herbs, fruits, and vegetables from the garden, feasting, and honoring sacrifices others have made on our behalf.
