Evergreens of all kinds are brought indoors for decorations during the winter months because they are symbols of hope and reminder that growth will prevail. Trees like pine, cedar and spruce stand strong and sturdy even in the harshest climates, displaying resilience and an amazing ability to survive in the face of adversity. This candle dressing can be incorporated into winter rituals or used on its own for spells for strength and endurance during difficult times.
