The Lore Behind Faerie Milk

The Story Behind Faerie Milk

The feast of Bealtaine is the Gaelic version of May Day. To usher in Summer, rituals were performed to protect the cattle and crops.
It was said the fairy folk were most active during this time of year. As they can be mischievous, it's considered wise to offer them a gift to appease them. 
Those who left bread and milk upon their doorsteps could ensure the goodwill of the fae folk and avoid their troublesome tricks. 
This tradition inspired our upcoming, seasonal scent, Faerie Milk, debuting April 5th, 2024.

If you want to make your own Faerie Milk, though, there are a lot of variations out there. 

Almost all consist of steamed milk with a little bit of sweetener, either sugar or honey. Many call for adding in herbs or spices to give it a little extra flavor. 

An easy recipe is to take a cup of milk, mix in a tablespoon of honey and a pinch of cinnamon. 

Cook it, stirring constantly, until it's steaming but not boiling (You don't want to scald it). 

It's really that simple!

The Faerie Milk candle has notes of honey, milk, and vanilla, so it would perfectly complement this comforting beverage.
