Lammas Sabbat Box Kitchen Witchery Sabbat Box

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

It’s hard to believe that we are full into the swing of summer, and that the first harvest is right around the corner! We at Sabbat Box have worked hard to curate a collection of items for this year’s Lammas/Lughnasadh box by focusing on a particular type of witchcraft: the magick created in the kitchen. Kitchen witchery is truly one of the oldest forms of magic ~ not only was cooking and preparing food vital for the survival for our ancestors, but oftentimes (before there was a pharmacy) health remedies and other homemade cures and fixes started at the home hearth, making the kitchen the symbol of life, family, abundance, magick and more!

We hope that you enjoy these items that we’ve hand-picked for the celebration of Lammas. We hope they give you a deeper understanding of the season and help you to connect with the power and usefulness of kitchen magick.

  • As some of you may know, we are currently at our maximum membership capacity at Sabbat Box. We have implemented a waiting list for those interested in joining when membership positions become available. You can join the waiting list here

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    Lammas Sabbat Box - Kitchen Witchery Sabbat Box

    All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

    • Lammas Rituals
    • Kitchen Witchery
    • Kitchen/Cooking Lore
    • Creating/Decorating a Magickal Kitchen ~ Decorating a Kitchen Altar

    As the Wheel of the Year makes its turn, we leave behind the longest days of Litha and find ourselves looking at the coming of Lughnasadh or Lammas. It is the time of year when the first crops are ready to be harvested and the bountiful results of hard work sown start to come to fruition.

    Some people may not literally consider cooking in general to be an actual “ritual” or “spell,” but when it comes to preparing meals, the truth is, cooking and baking are some of the most fundamental rituals of people as a whole, not just Pagans. The work put into the kitchen, like the seeds sown in the field, can reap a harvest of sustenance, family bonding, celebration, and joy. What is a spell, anyway, but the carrying out of a recipe? In the deliberate intention that we exercise over our stoves, we are linked to ancient practitioners who worked over their own cauldrons, preparing not only the basic human requirement of sustenance, but also offering a sacrifice of love and toil to satisfy and show appreciation to their loved ones. There has been a long-held belief that when you are feeding someone something you prepared or cooked, you are sharing with them a piece of yourself, your will and intent, making the act of cooking a special form of magick, unique to itself.

    Inside your Lammas Box, you will find an array of items specifically curated to help create a magickal atmosphere within the kitchen, as well as items meant to be used in combination with your Lammas celebrations to help draw forth and manifest the blessings of the earth that are symbolic of the harvest season.

    With almost a year in the making to be included inside our Lammas Sabbat Box, this magickal mini corn dolly statue by Sacred Source is a symbol of abundance and prosperity, and is perfect for a Lammas, Harvest, or kitchen altar.

    There are many variations of the history of the corn dolly, and the significance it has held. Ancient cultures believed that the “spirit” of the land would be homeless after the crops were harvested and barren, so a corn dolly would have been crafted with the first husks of grain of the harvest season, for the land spirits to inhabit over the long dark winter. It would have been honored and cherished until the followign spring, as it represented the abundance of the previous year’s crops, and the promise of the return of spring. Once spring came, the corn dolly would have been planted into the fields for the nature spirits to re-inhabit, to provide a hopeful return of a prosperous growing season. This makes the corn dolly an old and powerful form of sympathetic magick.

    Check out our blog article, The Corn Dolly - The Spirit Of The Grain for a more extensive and detailed history of the corn dolly, where it stems from, and how it was used in the past and present.

    TIME:
    We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

    This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!

    We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

    Lammas/Lughnasadh 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Kitchen Witchery 2

    Kitchen Witchery 2017 Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box Theme

    • KITCHEN WITCHERY •



    “Food is magic…” -- Scott Cunningham, Wicca in the Kitchen

    As the Wheel of the Year makes its turn, we leave behind the longest days of Litha and find ourselves looking at the coming of Lughnasadh, or Lammas. It is the time of year when the first crops of the harvest are ready to be harvested and the bountiful results of hard work sown literally come to fruition.

    2017 Lammas Sabbat Box Kitchen Witchery Sabbat Box ThemeLammas, also called Lughnasadh--celebrated usually on August 1st in the Northern Hemisphere (and February 1st in the Southern)--is the first of the three harvest festivals of the year, followed by Mabon and Samhain. It is one of the four cross-quarter Sabbats, standing between the fullness of summer solstice and the coming autumnal equinox. Historically the festival of Lammas is marked in the British growing season by of the beginning of the wheat harvest; the day itself stands a celebration for the ready crops that would help ancient people survive the cold, dark winter. In the Celtic tradition, this was also the time to honor and revere Lugh, the Celtic Sun King and God of Light. It is also the first mindful reflection that the light has already begun to wane and shorter days lie ahead. One of the most common traditions around Lammas is the baking of bread, which honors the gods with their fruits and feeds loved ones.

    Since Lammas is all about the grains and first fruits of harvest, we are reminded of the most used form of spell craft: cooking and preparation of food.  While many people don’t consider, for example, making dinner a spell, but the truth is cooking and baking are some of the fundamental daily rituals of Pagans. The work put into the kitchen, like the seeds sown in the field, can reap a harvest of sustenance, family bonding, celebration, and joy. What is a spell, anyway, but the carrying out of a recipe? In the deliberate intention we exercise over our stove, we are linked to ancient practitioners who worked over their own cauldrons, preparing not only the basic human requirement of sustenance, but also offering a sacrifice of love and toil to satisfy and appreciate their loved ones. There has been a long-held belief that feeding someone what you prepare instills your intent and will into them.

    2017 Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box Theme Kitchen Witchery







    It brings to mind a story my grandmother told me about when she first met my grandfather. Being the young German girl who was smitten with the young American soldier, she knew the way to get his attention: she would bake a apfeltorte—or “apple cake”—for him. He loved it, and, in turn, eventually fell in love with her. The spell had been cast!

    She performed all the components of what we as Pagans would identify as spell work: she had in mind her intent (she wanted my grandfather to notice her) powered by her will (she worked hard to make the best apple cake she’d ever made), which led to her will and intent manifested (her cake made my grandfather realize how much my grandmother cared for him, which led to love and marriage). All the elements of magickal working in its most basic, mundane terms.

    This Sabbat Box we wanted to offer some items that will help the work we do as Pagans in the kitchen. From the earliest times, our kitchen or hearth has often been the center of what we consider “home.” We want to provide some things that can help you connect to that part of your magickal practice and maybe even bring love and togetherness to your hearth. In the modern age we may have mostly replaced cauldrons with Crock Pots, and wands with spoons, but whether you may simmer some arcane herbs on the stove for a protection spell, or make chocolate chip cookies for your coworkers to celebrate a birthday, the work we do in our kitchens can bring love and peace and light to our lives. And whatever form that may take. We can create smiles and laughter and joy from what we prepare in our kitchens...and if that isn’t magic, what is?

    Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

    It is that time once again! Litha/Midsummer, has arrived, meaning the height of the God’s power (and the heat of the season) is in full effect. The fullness of life and abundance is on display, and with it the light of the sun diminishes the darkness and with it brings forth hope for answers to life’s obstacles and revelations of dark mysteries.

    This Litha we decided to focus on onee particular recipient of all this solar energy: herbs. It is now time to start to gather those green plants--even the ones that many may associate as “weeds”--and add them to our magickal cabinet for future use.

    Herbs are not just for cooking and natural medicines, but they offer us a way incorporate their various and unique correspondent energies into our spiritual practices. Whether sprinkled on fire, steeped in tea, or any other of the myriad applications of herbs in magickal practice, herbs give us a direct gift from the earth to incorporate into ourselves and provide a boundless connection to our world and environment.

      • BOX SYNOPSIS •


      2017Midsummer Sabbat Box - Herbal Witchery - Hedge Witchery - Subscription Box For Wiccans and Pagans

      All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

      • Herb Magick
      • Purification
      • Hedge Witchery & Green Witchery
      • Discovering how herbs are able to be used in many forms, to aid with our spiritual practices.

      With the summer solstice upon us, we look to the sky to honor the sun and all that it bestows upon us, just like our ancestors did. It is this very sun, our own special star, that provides for us as a people, the ability to survive and flourish (as well as every living thing on this planet). Our ancestors knew this, and a vast majority of them would take note of the celestial patterns of the cosmos, marking days like the solstices as holy days, and making them a time to honor the fiery body that brings with it warmth and the ability for life itself to carry on.

      Within modern Paganism and witchcraft today, plants and herbs play one of the most integral roles in our spiritual practice. Many of our spiritual tools are made from them (incense, oils, candles), and we incorporate them into sacred rites and ceremony, for the correspondences they hold. They even adorn our sacred space, just as they were originally used throughout time, adding further connection between herbs, the craft, and the sabbats.

      Though it is not one of the three harvest sabbats like the sabbats that follow it, Midsummer has long been associated with being a time when the abundance of the earth starts to become more prevalent, especially within the plant kingdom. Thanks to the longer days and the warmth of the sun, many types of herbs and plants will begin to mature around this time of year, and when harvested, the solar energy that helped each plant to grow, remains within them and will be transferred to us when we use them. This, in essence marks a direct connection between what grows from the ground and the sun.

      BREAKDOWN
      One of the things we wanted to include inside our Herbal Witchery Sabbat Box is a set of quality organic herbs that would be versatile in both their magickal and mundane use.

      EACH SET CONTAINS:

      • ASCENSION HERBAL SMUDGE STICK •


      Ascension Smudge Sticks

      ITEM 5: HERBAL SMUDGE STICK 7".........$12.00
      • WHAT: 
      Ascension 7” Desert Sage Smudge Stick w/Lavender, Myrrh, and Angelica
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Wolf Spirit Sage
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at Sabbat Box sourced via Eclectic Artisans.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This large smudge stick is a great way to connect and protect, heal and purify.

      BREAKDOWN 
      Another way herbs are used and implemented within our spiritual practices is to burn them for a specific purpose or intent. One of the more commonly known ways to do such is with a “smudging ceremony,” which consists of burning a smudge stick and wafting its smoke amongst people or in a designated space.

      CORRESPONDENCES:

      • Desert Sage: (Artemesia tridentata) Desert sage has long been a popular herb to be used for cleansing and purification and is often used in healing rituals. Though it has a similar aroma to white sage, desert sage is not as strong when burning, making it popular with people that may not be able to normally use white sage.
      • Lavender: (Lavendula officinale) is commonly associated with healing, peace and tranquility. 
      • Myrrh: (Commiphora myrrha) Myrrh is a resin that is burned to raise energy and the vibration of a space. It is also said to be used for protection, exorcism, healing and consecration.
      • Angelica: (Angelica archangelica) Angelica is used for protection magick, exorcism and healing ceremonies. Some also use angelica to work with angelic beings as well as petitioning the divine.

      It is believed that when burned, the corresponding properties (as well as the spirit of the herbs or plants) come forth to aid in the ritual or ceremony. The “Ascension” smudge stick is made up of a rare blend or herbs and resins meant to aid with healing, protection, purification and connecting with the divine.

      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Produced by Sabbat Box
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This beautiful crystal specimen is a great focal point and correspondent to the power of the sun and all the blessings of Midsummer.

      BREAKDOWN
      Midsummer is often associated with abundance, growth, success, and prosperity, so we decided to include a crystal that held similar correspondences to the celebration of the Sabbat. Citrine is often considered to be a stone of great power and is associated with good luck. It is also believed that citrine is a stone that is powered by the sun and has a reputation of increasing energy while transmuting negative energy, making it a great stone to work with or have on an altar during summer solstice rituals.

      • TIME •


      Herbal Witchery Midsummer Sabbat Box

      TIME:
      We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

      This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!

      We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

      Plants bring us the love, the nourishing power of the sun, which is the same energy of all the stars of all light” – The Yoga of Herbs

      As we travel past Beltane and the wheel of the year turns once more, you may notice that the days have grown longer, the sun’s rays shining warmer, and the fields, trees and flowers that blanketed the earth with a spectacle of color during the spring; are now happily basking in the golden hues of the midsummer sun.

      Midsummer-Litha-Summer-Solstice-Sabbat-Box.pngMidsummer, also known as the summer solstice or Litha, is a sabbat that marks the longest day of the year, with the shortest night. It is a celebration of the sun, growth, increase, empowerment, fertility and the abundance of the Earth that comes with the season. After the summer solstice occurs, days will start to grow shorter and shorter, until we reach the Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year). The summer solstice tends to occur on or around June 21, and may vary from year to year.

      With the summer solstice upon us, we look to the sky to honor the sun and all that it bestows us like our ancestors did. It is this very sun, our own special star, that provides for us as a people (as well as every living thing on this planet), the ability to survive and flourish. Our ancestors knew this, and a vast majority of them would take note of the celestial patterns of the cosmos, marking days like the solstices as holy days, and making them a time to honor the fiery body that brings with it warmth and the ability for life itself to carry on.


      For this year’s Midsummer sabbat box, we have turned to plant kingdom for inspiration in order to curate your boxes…For everything that grows is something to be celebrated on Midsummer.

      Though it is not one of the three harvest sabbats like the sabbats that follow it, Midsummer has long been associated with being a time when the abundance of the earth starts to become more prevalent, especially within the plant kingdom. Thanks to the longer days and the warmth of the sun, many types of plants will begin to mature around this time of year, and when harvested, the solar energy that helped each plant to grow, remains within them and will be transferred to us when we use them – in essence making a direct connection between what grows from the ground and the sun.

      Herbal Witchery - Litha Midsummer Sabbat Box ThemeWhether being used to eat, to heal, to adorn, for spiritual purposes or to be made into something else, since the dawn of time, we as a people have turned to the flowers and herbs of the plant kingdom for our every need. And within the practice of modern Paganism and witchcraft today, plants and herbs play one of the most integral roles in our spiritual practice. Many of our spiritual tools are made from them (incense, oils, candles), and we incorporate them into sacred rites and ceremony for the correspondences they hold. They even adorn our sacred space -- just as they were originally used throughout time.

      As shamans in tribes of old, we would seek to commune with the spirit of different plants, in effort to obtain their healing wisdom. As cunning-folk living out of sight, amongst the wood, if townspeople fell ill, they would petition us to concoct an herbal remedy for the ailment they faced. And as modern day mystics and followers of the magickal arts, we implement the use of herbs in our spiritual practice to aid in our pursuits of setting forth our intention and manifesting the changes we desire.

      The history, legend, and lore of herbalism runs deep within the various practices of Witchcraft and modern Paganism. For this year’s Midsummer Sabbat Box, we wanted to offer an array of products that reflected some of the different ways one is able to implement herbs and herbalism into your spiritual practice, while also learning more about herbal witchery as a whole. With this box, we also hope that you will discover the versatility and magick of herbs and herbal witchery, while implementing new herbal tools into your practice that you may not have thought to use before.

      The Crystal Box - Beltane Sabbat Box For 2017

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

      Beltane is here, which means its time to enjoy the increase of life and verdant spaces. The greenery is returning, the animals are multiplying, the air is warm and inviting. The Wheel of the Year has turned once again, and the sun is now spending more and more time above the horizon for longer days and bringing with it higher temperatures. For many, this is a very welcomed season of the year, especially after a harsh winter.

      This Beltane we at Sabbat Box decided it would be a unique change of pace for us to focus on one of the most cherished and beloved spiritual tools as inspiration for this box: the crystal. While the focus on crystals in Paganism may be fairly new to some, many people with different spiritual backgrounds are able to appreciate and connect with the beauty and perceived power of these shining earthly gifts, and for some, incorporate them into their spiritual practices, and in different ways. 

      We have curated a beautiful collection of products for the Beltane box that is completely centered around the use and significance of crystals. Everything inside this box is either....

      1. Made with crystals
      2. Made to be used with crystals
      3. Actually made of crystals.

      This is also our two year anniversary Sabbat Box, and many of you have been asking for a crystal themed box, so we decided to make this box happen, and we chose to celebrate our two year anniversary box with your special requests. We truly hope you both enjoy and can incorporate these crystal themed supplies into your own practice.

      • As some of you may know, as of now we are currently at our maximum membership capacity at Sabbat Box. We have implemented a waiting list for those interested in joining when membership positions become available. You can join the waiting list here
      • Do you or someone you know make a product that would appeal to the Pagan community? Are you looking to launch a product or get your product in front of a large audience? If so, lets talk! Sabbat Box is always looking for new vendors and suppliers that create unique items to feature inside an upcoming Sabbat Box. Sabbat Box is a great way for people to find out about you, your product or your company.

        • BOX SYNOPSIS •


        The Crystal Box - Sabbat Box For Beltane

        All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

        • Crystal Magick
        • Meditation
        • Crystal Spells
        • Manifestation
        • Learning about crystals and their properties
        • Incorporating crystals into your practices

        Since the very first Sabbat Box shipment that went out to our members back on Beltane of 2015, we have curated the majority of our boxes to coincide with the general themes of the Sabbats. We have worked hard to include invaluable resources, information, books, ritual tools, spell supplies, as well as other magickal products within our boxes, in order to help you further connect with your spiritual practice each Sabbat, and to help you connect with the very essence of the seasons. Since we have greatly connected with the broad themes of the Sabbats over the past two years, we decided that going forward, when it comes to curating products for some of our future boxes, we will be narrowing in on more specific magickal themes (as they may relate to a particular sabbat), in lieu of just the Sabbat in general. This approach to the themes of our boxes allows us to dive a little deeper into more specific magickal intent, influences, spiritual workings and product themes.

        For our two year anniversary box, we decided to curate a special collection of items that focuses in on crystals, working with crystal energies, and incorporating crystals into your spiritual practices. Beltane is often represented as a time of manifestation, growth, and the coming together of the feminine and the masculine in nature. The crystal themed items within this box were curated to allow you to easily incorporate the use of crystals, (and their energies), into your various magickal workings, including the celebration of Beltane. Crystals are versatile tools that can assist us with various forms of magick, and are great for further enhancing our overall practices.

        When it comes to working magick, the basic premise behind it is the same for the majority of people: it all boils down to one’s will and intent. Since this Sabbat Box was about learning how to incorporate different facets of crystal energy and crystal magick into your spiritual practice, we went ahead and designed these gorgeous “Seed of Life” crystal grids to be included within your boxes, and commissioned Deborah, the owner and artist of Alaska Laser Maid to make them, to help aid you with manifesting your intent. The Seed of life represents creation, growth and prosperity, all of which are common forms of magick to work during Beltane. 

        It is believed that one is able to channel and hone specific vibrational energies (in order to bring about a specific result) by using a combination of both sacred geometry and crystals in a specific arrangement...This is known as a “crystal grid." Using a crystal grid is an easy way to incorporate both crystals, and sacred geometry into your spiritual practice. We thought by including crystal grids inside this box that it would make for a unique way to have our members become acquainted with crystals (if you don't already use them within your practice), and to help you further connect with crystals if you already do work them.

        Each crystal grid featured inside the Beltane Box comes with:
        1 x 5 inch, custom-made “seed of life” grid with moon phases on the perimeter (made from Alaskan cedar)
        1 x Instructional how to guide, printed on parchment
        1 x Deep purple keepsake organza bag.

        Deborah Ross, the owner of Alaska Laser Maid, is known for her intricate laser etched designs. Deborah uses a 35 watt C02 laser to create her work. She also sources the wood used in her projects from a family owned mill in Alaska. She sands and finishes all of the wood herself as well. Deb sells breathtaking laser etched wooden rune sets, laser etched wooden Ogham sets, geomancy sticks, intricate tarot boxes, cedar incense boxes and more! Alaska Laser Maid is also able to do custom work too! Visit her Etsy shop and see for yourself. 


        • CRYSTAL INFUSED - AURA CLEANSING MIST •


        House of Good Juju Aura Cleansing Mist

        ITEM 2: AURA CLEANSING MIST.........$12.00
        • WHAT:
         Aura Cleansing Mist with Quartz, Fluorite, and Amethyst
        • WHO MAKES IT?: 
        House of Good Juju
        • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at House of Good Juju or the Sabbat Box Store
        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This clean, pleasantly-scented spray mist makes for a fragrant way to help clear and cleanse your aura from negativity and perceived attachments with the help of crystal magick.

        BREAKDOWN
        There are countless ways to work with crystals to draw forth their influences to assist us, and this beautiful crystal infused mist from House of Good Juju is specifically meant to assist with cleansing a part of ourselves that is important in both our spiritual workings and the mundane world around us--our aura.

        The aura influences people’s first impressions of us, sending subconscious signals to those around us. It acts as like our own personal “spiritual signature.” And just like with other parts of ourselves, our auras can become unbalanced. This spray was made to help restore it. Spray in the vicinity of your person and if needed lightly walk through the mist once it has been sprayed upwardly. Each spray is created and ritually charged during a new moon, and is blessed with a specific mantra, adding to its potency.

        INGREDIENTS INSIDE THIS SPRAY:

        • Cypress essential oil
        • Lavender essential oil
        • Lemongrass essential oil
        • Grapefruit essential oil

        There were seven different necklace types you could have received
        Amethyst, aventurine, black onyx, lapis, malachite, quartz, and tiger’s eye were among the selections. These crystal necklaces were chosen for Sabbat Box to help one connect with their specific corresponding properties, and what better way to manifest those properties than by wearing the crystal itself?


        • CARNELIAN RITUAL OIL  •


        Carnelian Infused Ritual Oil By Sun's Eye

        ITEM 4: RITUAL OIL..........$7.95
        • WHAT:
         Gem Scents Carnelian Ritual Anointing Oil
        • WHO MAKES IT?: Sun's Eye

        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: The high-quality oil blend from Sun’s Eye is a wonderfully smelling ritual oil imbued with the energies associated with carnelian. 

        BREAKDOWN
        This potent ritual anointing oil by Sun’s Eye draws in both the sensual energies associated with lily and musk and the energizing vibrations associated with Carnelian, making this an ideal ritual anointing oil to use in combination with your Beltane celebrations and seasonal magickal workings. This ritual oil can be used to anoint magickal objects, such as spell candles or ritual tools, and can also be used to anoint people too. Beltane is the sabbat commonly most associated with love and sensuality, since it is the Sabbat representative of the Masculine and the Feminine coming together. This oil would be great to use in love spells, or to manifest love in general..

        • CLEAR QUARTZ STONE SET •

        • WHO MAKES IT?: 
        Sourced via Eclectic Artisans

        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Included in the Sabbat Box as an accompaniment to the Seed of Life Crystal Grid, this set of clear quartz crystals can stand in for any myriad of intents and correspondences.

        BREAKDOWN
        We specifically chose this collection of quartz to use with a crystal grid, as it is common practice to use crystal points with grids. The great thing about quartz, though, is that it is considered a “universal stone,” meaning that it can, in essence, be used for various intents (giving the user the flexibility for these stones to aid any magickal or ritual practices) when not using them for a crystal grid. Quartz is also said to be a stone that aids in clarity, purification, and some even use it to cleanse other stones or tools.

        • TIME •


        The Crystal Box Sabbat Box

        TIME:
        We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

        This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!

        We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

        Beltane 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • The Crystal Box 1


        Sabbat Box Pagan Subscription Box Wiccan Subscription Box The Crystal Box For Beltane

        The Wheel of the Year is turning as always, and it is now time in the Northern Hemisphere to celebrate Beltane, one of the cross-quarter Sabbats and commonly known as one of the four fire festivals of the year. The Sabbat is all about the new life and fertility that is thriving on the earth, and a celebration of the coming summer and the bright and healing power of the sun.

        The Crystal Box - Sabbat Box Crystal Box For BeltaneFor this year’s fire festival of Beltane we are focusing on an specific element formed from pressure and flame: crystals. We understand crystals naturally “grow” even though they are not alive, so the correspondence to Beltane and its ties to growth, fertility, and increase are a perfect way to observe a specific facet of our Pagan practice and work on our Path.

        We have curated a collection of items for this box that celebrates the use and the beauty of crystals and gemstones in our spiritual practice, as well as their ability to be used as spiritual tools. All of the items that we have curated for you to be featured inside The Crystal Box will either be made from crystals, have crystals within the product itsself, or the item is meant to be used in combination with crystals. We hope that you will enjoy learning and working with these sparkling components and are able to connect with what they can bring to your practice.

        With the correspondences to the elements of Earth and Fire, the power of heat and stone, the significance of pressure and growth, it is easy to see how crystals can directly relate to the time of Beltane. We hope that each item we are showcasing in this years  box will strengthen your connection to these cherished tools of magick.
