A full day spent in sunlight—soak it up. And we do. Somehow the body knows the star of our Earth is necessary nourishment. At the start of the year, each day of sunlight increases. We get more and more and just plain more right up to the pinnacle of our year—the Summer Solstice. It truly is the longest day. We shall not waste it!
When your year’s pinnacle reveals itself, how shall you glisten?
A rich, commingled garden of Basil, Orange, Petitgrain, Rosemary, and Vetiver stimulate and enliven every heightened sensation.
Litha or the Summer Solstice is celebrated on June 21st. Rituals center around honoring all things related to the sun, re, and summer’s bliss. Outdoor events of all kinds include picnics, bonfires, making daisy chains and flower crowns, floating candles in boats upon bodies of water, and constructing protective amulets from natural found objects.
