Mabon marks the Autumn Equinox on the Pagan Wheel of the Year. The end of summer and beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. It is a time of balance and harmony, as the day and night are of equal length. Officially occurring on September 22, the celebration traditionally lasts from September 21-23. Also known as The Second Harvest Festival, Mabon is the second of three Pagan harvests - the first is Lammas/Lughnasadh and the final is Samhain (also the Witch’s New Year). In rituals, we pay respect to the waning sunlight and store the harvest of the year’s crops. Some believe that it is necessary to share the crops in order to receive blessings from the Gods and Goddesses for the coming winter months. From now until Yule, the days become shorter. Mabon is a time to prepare and pay respect to the impending darkness. A time to take stock of the year’s successes and failures, a time of reflection, and to acknowledge the good in our lives.

Some activities that honor Mabon are making wine, gathering dried herbs, walking in the woods, scattering offerings and adorning burial sites with leaves, acorns, and pine cones to honor those who have passed over. This is a good time for spell work involving protection, prosperity, security, and self-confidence. Our Van Van Oil is a perfect ingredient for magick work during this time.

To honor this Sabbat, we’ve hand-poured this limited-edition Mabon candle. With notes of apple, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and the smallest hint of pine, these candles are sure to become a fall classic. May your Mabon be a full of relaxation and reflection of your hard work. Blessed be.
