Beer is an integral part of sowing, crop attendance and harvesting. Such gatherings were called sambari, and on that occasion a sambaric beer was produced, which was offered to the goddess of harvest and home. The drinking of the beer in the rooms performed as a sacred rite. Often beer took on the role of sacrifice to the Gods by pouring it on the ground or into the fire. Beer pourings were a necessary part of the worship of the Baltic gods and are considered to be the most characteristic rites dedicated to it, associated with both agriculture and the celebration of essential events in human life, the celebration of the house.
Main fragrance notes
The magic fragrance of this scented candle is based on old customs, traditions and the belief that every plant or aroma has its own magical purpose. It is like a witch recipe, where each plant and its aroma have a very important aromatherapic and magic function. The main notes supplement each other with aromatherapic properties and create a high-end fragrance pyramid where each scent in scented candle has its place in harmony with other aromas.
Tobacco leaves: this aroma is very common in perfumery. Representing masculinity, this fragrance will provide a sense of comfort, safety, strength, and stability. Not for nothing in folk tales people used to chew tobacco leaves or smoke pipes in order to ward of the devil. Tobacco works well against evil spirits, helps to protect homes and people from negative energy, jealousy, and evil-eye. Sweetish, yet luxurious and rich aroma of tobacco will help to create the atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
Sage: belonging to the element of air, this plant is under the protection of Jupiter. Its name is derived from the Latin and means “healthy”. Ancient physicians Hippocrates, Dioscorides and others claimed that salvia is a holy plant, while in ancient Egypt and Rome women drank its juice in order to conceive a child. Salvia could be gathered only by barefoot and people clad in white tunics who had performed special rituals of purification, cleansing and offering to the gods. Druids attributed even more important characteristics to salvia, as they considered that this plant extremely potent and used it for predicting the future and communicating with the Otherworld.
Myrrh: The fragrance of myrrh helps to sort out thoughts, prevents from indulging into non-relevant details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditation, as it helps to ward off egocentric thoughts, restores the objectivity and adequacy of one’s psychological state, calms irritation, and improves sleep.
