Ostara is a celebration of spring. The ancient Celts would celebrate this sabbat in honor of the warmth of the sun and growing earth. Often celebrated March 20-21 in the northern hemisphere, this day marks the balance. As the sun begins to return and grow, balance is restored. Symbols of this day include young animals, eggs, early spring flowers & plants, pastel colors, and the sun & prosperity.
Ostara is associated with fertility and rebirth. This is an ideal time of the year to bless the garden as you prepare plants and the soil for the coming growing season. It is time to share your blessings with the earth to ensure abundance within this cycle.
This blessed blend of herbs and tea is perfect for this sacred time of year. Its aroma is fragrant and relaxing, and flavors are subtle and slightly sweet. An excellent way to celebrate Ostara is to bless your garden. Pour some of this sacred tea (once cooled of course) over your garden before you sit and enjoy your first cup or as part of your Ostara ritual.
