Sing the songs,
make an offering.
to those now gone.
Ancestor, Elder, Atavus,

Nine herbs of the dead fall from my hands into this balm. Called by the ancestors at the night of Samhain I gathered them, Blessed and smudged and offered up to my own ancestors as the lights burned on windowsill for them. This balm can be created but once a year as the light wanes and the veils begins to thin.

This balm is intended for use when contacting the ancestors for aid in divination and spellwork and as veneration when tending resting places and memorial altars.

This balm is only created on Samhain (Southern Hemisphere) each year, it is intended for use throughout the following year.

Please Note: As the seasons are opposite inthe Southern Hemisphere, so are the sabbats, When the Northern Hemisphere celebrate Beltane, the Southern is Celebrating Samhain. This is why the Balm becomes available in May. The Balm is suitable for use in your own Samhain celebrations and rituals. Coven sized Jars available. Please contact us to arrange.

This item ships with tips for use.
