October -Samhain

Samhain (pronounced 'Sow-in')

Halloween first originated from the festival of Samhain (pronounced 'Sow-in') so we thought it was only right to make it the theme of our October box! The Samhain Festival marked the end of summer and the beginning of winter. Many of the traditions from then still remain today. We invited our customers to revel in the sights, scents and tastes of Samhain, here is what was in the box.
