• 2017 MIDSUMMER SABBAT BOX • HERBAL WITCHERY • BOX BREAKDOWN •


Midsummer Sabbat Box Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans

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.

    • 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.

    Citrine Crystal Sets

    ITEM 6: STONE SET...............$1.95
    • WHAT:
     Citrine Crystal Kit with Informational Card and Organza Bag
    • 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.

    Sabbat Box Midsummer Sabbat Box Theme - Herbal Witchery

    • HERBAL WITCHERY •


    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!

      • 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.

      • 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.

      1 x Hand-stamped cotton muslin keepsake bag
      1 x One of seven crystal point pendants with a stainless steel bezel

      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  •

      • 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 •


      Clear Quartz Crystal Points And Stone Set

      ITEM 6: QUARTZ COLLECTION...............$7.00
      • WHAT:
       6 Quartz Points & Crystal Quartz Tumbled Stone Set
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Sourced via Eclectic Artisans
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at the Sabbat Box Store
      • 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.

      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.

      2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

      Ostara is almost upon us, and while some of us this year are facing a winter that doesn’t seem to want to go away (thanks Mr. Groundhog), the colors of spring will soon be upon us, and Ostara is a celebration of the abundance of life and growth throughout nature. The fertility of the earth is celebrated at this time, and we tread our path with the lush greens and colors of blooms cropping up along the way.

      Since this stop on the Wheel of the Year is all about fertility and increase, we at Sabbat Box decided to focus this year’s Ostara box on the penultimate example of abundant growth: the Goddess and her connection to the Moon. We have curated a group of items that celebrate the moon and her natural and metaphysical effect on all of us and nature. Whether you are learning about the many various Goddesses and Moon Deities through the the Moon Lore book and parchment, or conducting ritual or meditation enjoying the wafting scents of dedicated incense, we hope that this collection of quality products brings you closer to the divine feminine and the power that the moon holds over our magick.

        • BOX SYNOPSIS •


        2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick

        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:

        • Moon Magick
        • Clairvoyance
        • Banishing
        • Moon/Esbat Rituals     
        • Manifestation
        • Psychic Intuition 
        • Connecting With the Divine Feminine

        Traditionally, when it comes to the celebration of Ostara and the spring equinox, we tend to associate this Sabbat with fertility, rebirth, balance, duality growth and renewal. Of which, many pagans tend to either celebrate or work magick to manifest such, during this time of year (while placing emphasis on, and drawing power from the returning sun to do so).

        But couldn’t we also look equally to the moon in order to work magick that corresponds to these specific archetypes as well? And wouldn’t incorporating celebrating and honoring the moon and the darker half of the equinox (on top of the returning sun), be a symbolic form of duality in practice? The answer is yes!

        When it comes to the moon you can find direct parallels between the Wheel of the Year and the lunar cycle. More specifically, each moon phase could actually be representative of a sabbat in and of its self, simply based on the similar correspondences that they each share. On top of that, most would agree that within the craft, the moon and her phases are considered to be one of the most important and influential celestial bodies that can effect our magick and the energies we attempt to work with and manifest. This makes working with the moon an integral part of the craft, regardless of the sabbat. The items featured inside this box were curated to help assist with opening up, channeling and working with the lunar energies this sabbat, and all throughout the year.

Staying in line with our theme surrounding moon magick, we wanted to include something in this Sabbat Box that could help expand your mind while channeling the aspects of the moon, hence the inclusion of this book, “Moon Lore” by Elizabeth Pepper. Moon Lore may be tiny, but it is filled with useful information pertaining to the moon that you can include into your own personal practices such as: sacred moon rituals, prayers, charms, moon spells, and lunar incantations. The book also includes a plethora of information pertaining to various myths and legends surrounding the moon, which helps us to further connect with the roots of our practice and why we do what we do..


        • LOOSE RITUAL INCENSE •

        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This incense burner is a compact and convenient way to burn your favorite loose incense in an attractive design.

        BREAKDOWN
        The burning of incense, is in essence, a ritual in and of itself. There is almost a primitive feeling that we get when we burn loose incense, the same way our ancestors would. From the moment that we start the process, it is almost as if a direct connection is being made between ourselves, our ancestors and our magickal intent. It is this strong, mystic connection that we as pagans seek out during our rites to help draw power from in order to manifest our intent.

        With that said, when it comes to properly burning loose incense, one does need the correct tools necessary to burn them. Since we included a jar of such beautiful loose incense inside the Ostara Sabbat Box, we decided to curate the tools needed in order to properly burn them. Each burner comes with a visual info card with directions on how to properly use and burn loose incense on charcoal. Each set also came with 2 incense charcoal briquettes and a feather to waft the smoke where you would like for it to go.

        BREAKDOWN
        Though it is made to be used specifically in combination with the moon and its phases, this double hand-poured spell candle captures the duality aspect of the equinox and the likeness of the different moon phases. Along with the candle, we included a simple manifestation candle magick spell on the card provided, to act as a guide that you can use to perform your own spell (throughout a complete lunar cycle).

        Each candle is created with premium refined waxes, cotton wicks, and pure essential oils.

        BREAKDOWN 
        Within the actual practice of witchcraft and Paganism there is a deep connection between the moon, the “divine feminine,” and the Goddess herself. In fact, within some traditions, these three aspects may be considered one in the same. Though this may be, the “Moon Goddess” may come in many forms and is known by many names. This gorgeous parchment will help you become more acquainted with some of them, and will also make a beautiful addition to a Book of Shadows.

        BREAKDOWN
        When it comes to us working magick, it is important that we do our best to correspond to and channel the energies of which we are attempting to work with. This hand-blended ritual anointing oil by Lailoken’s Awen was created specifically for working with the energies of the moon, as well as working with the divine feminine. Each moon anointing oil is crafted during specific astrological timing corresponding to the moon and is ritually charged.

        This oil is made with an organic essential oil blend of:

        • Jasmine
        • Sandalwood
        • Ylang Ylang
        • Fractionated coconut oil

        The gentle, subtle, feminine aroma that is emitted from this ritual oil will surely help to get you in the mindset of connecting with the divine feminine. Use Moon ritual anointing oil to anoint candles, charms, talismans, ritual tools, and your body during any working to draw in lunar influences, or for spells involving feminine forces, cycles, generation, intuition, fertility and during psychic work. You can also use moon ritual anointing oil in combination with rituals involving the home, or when working with lunar gods, angelic beings, intelligences, and other lunar entities. Made on the day and in the hour of the Moon. 

        "Awen" is Welsh for inspiration. In the Welsh tradition. Awen is the inspiration of the bards, or, in its personification, Awen is the inspirational muse of creative artists.

        The Sacred Feminine Store

        COMPANY: THE SACRED FEMININE

        ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY SELL: My name is Montserrat and I was born in Barcelona. I have lived in many places and countries, and now I am in the United States.
        I have always been interested in art, and it was after a series of spiritual experiences that I started to paint with oils.

        My first paintings were of Cosmic Devas and Angels. Llater on the Divine Feminine was awaken within me, and I began to paint the female manifestation of Divinity. I practice the middle path of the Buddha and I don't associate with any specific religion, having found that all religions hold beautiful teachings. You will probably notice that some of my paintings have a religious air to them, while others are more symbolic.

        I also make candles, my themes are spiritual and the candles are designed by me, including the labels, that depict my original oil paintings of fairies, angels, mermaids, goddesses and totem animals. 

        Most of the candles sold these days are made by people who don't really care about the candles. It is just a job for them. It is easy to see why you should clear a store bought candle before you use it. All my candles are a conscious creation into which only high and inspiring thoughts and intentions are projected. You will feel the difference.

        I have an online metaphysical store where you can find my art and handmade candles, as well as many other products that I have fallen in love with, such as all kinds of crystals, altars, spiritual jewelry, pendulums and many other wonderful things.

        Ostara Sabbat Box Moon Magick 2017

        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.

        2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick - Sabbat Box a Subscription Box For Pagans


        • MOON MAGICK •


        2017 Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Release - Moon MagickThe next sabbat in the Wheel of the Year that we will reach in the Northern Hemisphere is Ostara, the celebration of spring and the vernal equinox--that point where the light and the dark of the day is equal. During the sabbat of Ostara, it is common to work magick corresponding to balance and duality, (due to the actual representation of both light and dark being displayed within nature around this time of year), but instead of taking the typical route with this year's Ostara Box, we decided to connect with the energies and celestial wisdom of the moon, which also encompasses the duality of both light and dark, in her own unique way. An important part of following a magickal path is learning to incorporate new and unique approaches to your spiritual practice and breaking away from the standard cookie-cutter mold of modern Paganism from time to time. For this Ostara’s Sabbat Box: the Goddess, represented by the Moon, and her magick will be the main focus and where we have drawn our inspiration from for this theme. 

        When it comes to the moon you can find direct parallels between the Wheel of the Year and the lunar cycle. More specifically, each moon phase could actually be representative of a sabbat in and of its self, simply based on the similar correspondences that they each share. On top of that, most would agree that within the craft, the moon and her phases are considered to be one of the most important and influential celestial bodies that can effect our magick and the energies we attempt to work with and manifest. This makes working with the moon an integral part of the craft, regardless of the sabbat. The items featured inside this box were curated to help assist with opening up, channeling and working with the lunar energies this sabbat, and all throughout the year.

        We hope the 2017 Ostara Sabbat Box and the surprises it holds inside will add a unique addition to your next ritual, meditation, or magickal working, and that you are able to connect with the guiding light of the moon to bring forth and manifest your desires for the coming spring.
