How to Make Sanhain Remembering the Dead - Herbal Ritual


  1. Cast your circle using rose petals and rosemary sprigs to define it.

    Say before the altar:

    "The wheel of life turns,
    The cycle of rebirth continues.
    Those beyond life,
    You are remembered today.
    Gifts of love and hope,
    Are offered whole heartedly,
    To those we remember
    to those we do not,
    to all of those we have lost.
    Dark Lady and Dark Lord,
    In your gentle embrace,
    Our dead you have taken.
    All thread of life are cut,
    All threads are woven anew.
    May the wheel turn,
    And begin the cycle again.
    We give freely
    Juniper for love
    Yew for rebirth
    Bay for strength
    parsley for cleansing
    Alyssum for happiness
    Basil for peace.
    May our blessings be received.
    You are remembered."
