Matilda of the Night

  • Sale
  • Regular price £5.50


'Twas deem'd that, when the demon chase
Careering swept etherial space,
Exulting in their transient sway,
She join'd her kindred, and away;
For Mallt-y-Nös was ne'er again
The hag, on earth, of wood or glen.

Taliesen Williams, The Doom of Colyn Dolphyn, 1837

Mallt-y-Nos is often translated into English as Matilda of the Night. A welsh spirit, she is a named participant in the Wild Hunt who chases the souls of the dead to the afterlife. She rides with spectral hounds and is said to have been possibly a witch, or an impious oblewoman in her life. She is often decribed to be malicious in nature, but this is not always the case. This tinted balm is a deep blue-violet colour, the colour of oncoming night.
