Putting out the “good china”, choosing the “fancy” buns for guests or actually lighting the candles. It’s the last little things that kick up ordinary to a new place. Whether the finishing touches are to your person or to your home, they complete the feeling of having created something special.

Holle, Winter Solstice Goddess in Wax

These wax ornaments are just the thing to balance all that Holly King/Oak King Energy at Yule.

Holle or Holda is of sturdy stock and brings the Winter. She supports hard work and in Spring as Winter ends, she wakes the apples trees.

Giving of yourself for others in the kitchen or around your home honours the essence of Holle.

These ornaments are made of paraffin with beeswax shoulder scarfs of Holly leaves and berries.
