A mask baked of bread, to chase winter away,
Bay leaves for prophecy at the oracle of Delphi,
Apple and Cardamom love magic.
Mint flowers for Venus,
Juniper for Jupiter,
Mugwort for dreaming.
Spells whispered into the bark of an oak tree,
A sacred feast by candlelight.
Made with green tinctures of blooming Wild Mint and Mugwort, and Bay leaves which surprised me with their complexity: lemony top, floral notes, at once juicy and carrying the dryness of a desert. November’s last countryside apples sparkling with spices, a wild harvest of Juniper and mushrooms. Featuring a sourdough bread accord, created partly by capturing the smoke of fresh bread. The smokiness is softly amplified by burning Bay leaves, dark Oak leaves and a moody Oudh.
Created in collaboration with Melissa Jayne Madara, author of the new book ‘The Witch’s Feast: A Kitchen Grimoire.
Infused with a Selenite crystal for clarity ~ Label features a meal blessing sigil, created by Melissa.
