Harvest Moon Candle
Rich buttery tones, sweet apple, mid-notes of spiced cinnamon and pumpkin. Warm woodsy base notes with a hint of vanilla sugar in this warm and spicy fragrance.
The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the start of fall. For several evenings, the moonrise comes soon after sunset. This results in an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer-grown crops. Hence, it’s called the “Harvest” Moon! There are just a little over 12 complete Moon cycles every year, on average. Usually, throughout the year, the Moon rises an average of about 50 minutes later each day. But near the autumnal equinox, the difference is only 30 minutes. It may almost seem as if there are full Moons multiple nights in a row!
For farmers, harvest time is the culmination of almost a years’ worth of planning and work. They spend the summer watching their crops grow, treating them for issues and researching the best markets for their product. Harvest time is when they finally see months of hard work form into a beautiful crop and reap the rewards of what they’ve sown.
