2019 Imbolc Sabbat Box - Spirit's Replenishment - Subscription Box For Pagans

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

The modern spiritual observation of the shift from darkness to light, from old to new, is what Imbolc is all about. Many Pagans use this time to take stock and begin to lay a foundation for the growth and improvement they seek over the coming year. And like the first step in any magickal working, creating a solid magickal foundation starts with purifying, cleansing, ridding and banishing all that needs it -- in order to take the steps to ultimately replenish ourselves and our spirit. By starting the year with a focus on purification and clearing of the old, we lay the groundwork that we need in order to aid us in manifesting the future we desire...in a symbolic, physical, and spiritual manner.

      • BOX SYNOPSIS •


      2019 Imbolc Sabbat Box - A Witch Subscription Box Delivered Prior To Each Sabbat

      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:

      • Purification magick
      • Energy clearing
      • Ritual/spiritual cleansing
      • Consecration and healing work
      • Crystal magick
      • Help with banishing and protective work before rites

      The winter solstice can be a time of darkness, stagnation, and a sort of end-year malaise. When that Times Square ball drops at midnight on the new year, however, our consciousness tends to shift: we think about what we have done over the last year and what we may want out of the next. It is a time for taking stock, adding up the plusses and subtracting the minuses, with a forward-facing position towards what’s to come. This year's box was curated with this in mind, and with the intent to help assist with replenishing one's spirit as we tread closer towards the spring and into the new year. 


      • TRIPLE MOON ALTAR BELL KIT •

      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A classic in any witch’s repertoire, this beautiful bell is a treat of sight and sound.


      BREAKDOWN

      One of the more commonly recognized tools within the craft (and Wicca particularly) is the altar bell. With its ties to purification and clearing one’s space, we thought it would make a perfect addition to this year’s Imbolc Sabbat Box. This gorgeous brass bell is decorated with symbols that represent both feminine and masculine aspects of the divine. It contains triple moons (signifying the Goddess in all her aspects), and fixed atop its handle is a horizontal crescent moon (symbolic of the horns of the God). Many practitioners use bells to signify or mark particular moments within ritual or spellwork, such as the opening and closing of the circle, calling the four quarters, or to chime the moment of exercised intent. This bell can be used for such or as an all-around tool to bring higher vibrational energy within your sacred space to purify and banish negativity. A soft chime of a bell can be used to cleanse an area where you may not want or cannot use smoke or smudge. A harder tolling can represent the high vibration energy necessary for banishment. A bell is also considered to be a correspondence of the element of air, and can mark this element on a Wiccan altar.

      • QUARTZ CRYSTAL TOWER SET •

      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: These stunning clear quartz towers are a great focal point and energetic symbol for your altar or sacred space.


      BREAKDOWN
      For a box dedicated to purification and spiritual replenishment, we thought it would be a nice idea to include another popular altar fixture to add within our members’ spiritual toolbox: the quartz tower. Clear quartz, unsurprisingly, corresponds to clarity, both in energy and communication. While quartz crystal itself is generally seen as a stone of universal intention (as it is the culmination of all the colors of the rainbow like a prism, which many believe includes all aspects of all other stones), it also brings its specific significance of transparency and purity with its translucent brilliance. In the form of a tower, it stands in for both masculine or phallic energies and is honorarium to the divine (as it points “upward”), as well as a striking illustration of a sword cutting air or division of space. Many crystal workers and practitioners recognize the energy-attracting power of the tower shape as a source of strength, stability, and power. These stunning towers are a perfect addition to any altar or sacred space, and can be used as a focal point for higher energy work and divination.

      BREAKDOWN
       
      Our aura is an energy field that surrounds us. It is the first thing that others pick up on when coming into contact with us and it is also very sensitive to surrounding energies, helping to guide our intuition. It is important that our aura be free flowing and protected in order for us to maintain clarity, in both magickal and mundane settings. To help assist with both purifying and protecting our aura, we included this potent Aura Ointment by Light of Anjou in this Imbolc’s Sabbat Box. Use this balm prior to spellwork or ritual as a way to purify the aura and protect it from negativity and ill intent. This anointing balm is versatile enough to be used on the body and can be used on objects you wish to purify and protect.

We opted to include one of 4 of the 12 varieties in each Sabbat Box to aid with purification and cleansing one’s space (sandalwood, jasmine, dragon’s blood, and frankincense). They’re each made using the “masala tradition” which consists of grinding and mixing powdered herbs, resins, and oils together to form a dough, and then are hand rolled onto the bamboo and coated in aromatic wood powder. Which variety speaks to you? Which variety is your favorite? As with all items by Sun's Eye, these incense are of exceptional quality, and will quickly become your favorite incense to use for ritual or meditation.

          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.

          Boxes ship: 1/25 ~ A new calendar year is quite often a time when we take stock of where we have been and where we are going. After the traditional “holiday season” has passed, everyone is back to “business.”


          Februarius, the Greeks and It's Historical significance The winter solstice can be a time of darkness, stagnation, and a sort of end-year malaise. When that Times Square ball drops at midnight on the new year, however, our consciousness tends to shift: we think about what we have done over the last year and what we may want out of the next. It is a time for taking stock, adding up the plusses and subtracting the minuses, with a front-facing position towards what is to come.

          This sudden adjustment in thought at this time of year can mean that we strive for changes to our thoughts or actions in the areas of our lives that may need strengthening, improving, and replenishing. We think about gym memberships, dietary changes, work plans, relationship goals. We think about how we want to move forward on our spiritual path…what skills we want to learn, what goals we want to achieve, what obstructions we want to conquer. We think to cleanse ourselves of negativity and failure and mistakes while facing the new year with hope and optimism.

          This is not a new philosophy or phenomenon surrounding this time. The calendar year and the Wheel of the Year share these ideas, and throughout history we have different groups and cultures that would look to clear out the old and ring in the new. In our earliest societies as humans, there was the hopeful belief in the return of new life and new growth, focusing on what needed to be done to have a bountiful spring planting season. The Romans later on celebrated Februa, where we get the word for the month of February. This was a festival on the 15th of the named month where purification and cleansing were celebrated and observed. The Celts, also turned their minds to clearing out the negative and what was used up and focused on improving their lives during this time of year as well. A number of early spring traditions were created at that time, including the concept of “spring cleaning” and the mundane preparations for fertility and growth translated into the spiritual clearing and purification necessary for success and a prosperous season ahead. As modern pagans, we have continued to carry forward many of these seasonal traditions, most specifically the Gaelic traditions, and call this time Imbolc, the first of the eight sabbats in our modern calendar year.

          Sabbat Box Imbolc 2019 Theme Release

          The modern spiritual observation of this shift from darkness to light, from old to new, is what Imbolc is all about. Many Pagans use this time to take stock and begin to lay  a foundation to the growth and improvement they seek, and like the first step in any magickal working, creating a solid magickal foundation starts with purifying, cleansing, ridding and banishing all that needs it, in order to take the steps to ultimately replenish ourselves and our spirit.

          In this spirit—and at this time in the Wheel of the Year—Sabbat Box has curated a collection of items that can help everyone prepare themselves (and their craft) for the return of spring and the time of preparation we celebrate with this Sabbat. What parts of your life, spiritual and mundane, are you looking grow from? Do you have or know of anything that needs clearing our purifying in your physical and spiritual space? What about yourself? Could you use some spiritual clarity and replenishment? By starting the year with a focus on purification and clearing of the old, we are able to lay the foundation and groundwork that we need in order to aid us in manifesting the future we desire, in a symbolic, physical and spiritual manner.

            • BOX SYNOPSIS •


            Imbolc Sabbat Box - Sabbat Box a Subscription Box Service for Witches, 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:

            • Purification Magick
            • Protection Magick
            • Transformation Magick
            • Working with the goddess Brigid

            Across the globe, different cultures honor this time with festivals that celebrate the new life that awakens where they live. In many ancient European cultures, Imbolc was a time to celebrate the goddess Brigid, who many consider the original triple goddess figure. Brigid later became a Catholic saint, with her original pagan aspects folded into Christianity. She is considered by some as the goddess of fire and light, as well as reproduction and fertility. Imbolc is said to be translated as “in the womb."

            In Ireland, feasts are held by pulling out some of the last winter stores as an offering to the earth’s promise of new seeds to be sown, and the future crops to be harvested. Many cultures in the past also considered this “lambing season,” when breeding of livestock and pregnant ewes and other animals would reproduce to add to the flock. This is also a time of weather divination, where people would look for the appearance of snakes or badgers from their dens to gauge how much longer the winter would be (and where the modern custom of Groundhog’s Day may have evolved).

            Not only is Imbolc and its time of the year a time to reawaken the life of the earth, it is also a time of purification and cleaning out old, cooped-up things in our homes and lives that we are ready to let go and improve. This time of clearing away later became to be known as “spring cleaning,” which is an annual tradition for many.

            Here at Sabbat Box we recognize and celebrate all of these different aspects of Imbolc and we have curated items for this box to honor our connection to these traditions and rites, and what they provide as a focus to our magickal practice and Path.

            This custom made ritual spray by Light of Anjou makes for a simple and convenient way to purify your altar, sacred space, linens, and more. Each spray is made with a divine herbal blend of angelica, rowan, and heather infused alcohol as well as pure essential oils. The components of this spray were carefully chosen to be included in this concoction because of their corresponding ties to both the Sabbat of Imbolc as well as their connections to Brigid.

            The Celts believed that rowan was a symbol of the hidden mysteries of nature and represented the quickening of the life force (a celebrated theme of Imbolc). Angelica and heather are said to be extremely protective, both used to ward off evil, as well as heal and purify.

            INGREDIENTS:

            • Rowan: known by many as a tree of power, it was sacred to the Celts and the Goddess Brigid. The Celts Believed that rowan was a symbol of the hidden mysteries of nature and represented the quickening of the life force.
            • Heather: A feminine herb that is believed to bring about good luck and protection
            • Angelica: Corresponding to the element of fire, angelica is a masculine herb that corresponds to healing and protection.

            • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Created in Ireland using traditional materials, this handcrafted Brigid’s cross is a powerful talisman and a time-honored Celtic form of protection magick

            BREAKDOWN 
            The Celts, for whom the celebration of Imbolc stems from, believed that the “Brigid’s Cross” (a symbol sacred to the goddess Brigid) is a powerful talisman of protection, and would be hung above windows or entryways into the home in effort to keep harm or want away.

            It is originally believed that Brigid’s crosses were crafted by the Celts and hung indoors as a way to invite their life giving Goddess (Brigid) into the home during the start of spring and the planting season. It was quite the symbolic gesture during our ancestor’s time, holding various significance. In Celtic lore, Brigid was considered the “fire keeper of the flame of life” and some believe that the reeds and rushes used to make these talismans happen to represent the kindling used to keep “the life fire” lit, making this an extremely old and powerful form of sympathetic magick. The practice of crafting these ancient talismans still continues today in parts of Ireland on St. Brigid’s Day, which is celebrated on February 1st.

            Each Brigid’s Cross included in Sabbat Box was hand crafted in Ireland and made with real reeds and rushes harvested from the River Shannon, by folk artist Patricia O’Flaherty. Patricia, the founder of “Naomh Padraig,” (pronounced Nav Badrig) has been an Irish folk artist for over twenty years and uses age-old techniques and material to craft her line of traditional Irish Folk Crafts

            • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at the Sabbat Box Store
            • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This beautiful prayer is to honor the goddess Brigid and the light she brings to the world, and can serve as an incantation or spell element for the celebration of winter’s end and spring’s return.

            BREAKDOWN
            The Wheel of the Year and the eight sabbats that it represents happens to stem primarily from the old seasonal Celtic calendar. With the sabbats’ roots deep in Celtic lore and celebration, it is easy to see why Brigid (the Celtic goddess of light, life, fertility, the forge and the hearth) became a focal point of worship for Imbolc, especially given the time of year Imbolc was celebrated by the Celts. You may incorporate the use of this prayer into your Imbolc rites or spell work as a way to connect with both the archetype of Brigid (what she represents), and to work with her as a goddess.

            2018 Imbolc Sabbat Box - At Winter's End

            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.

            2018 Imbolc Sabbat Box - At Winter's End - Subscription Box for Witches Wiccans and Pagans


            • IMBOLC SABBAT BOX - AT WINTER'S END •



            The new calendar year is here, and with it brings the promise of new life and new beginnings. We watch as the earth begins to awaken, her fertile soil ready to welcome the rise of her Sun Lord. We eagerly await the newness of life to come forth as the winter cold starts to wane. The earth comes awake: the air begins to sweeten, the earliest flower buds start to appear, even through the snow. The sun gives new life and new energy to all living things. The ice and snow begins to melt, water flowing through the forest, a promise of new life ready to emerge.

            Brigid's Cross For Imbolc - Sabbat BoxAcross the globe, different cultures honor this time with festivals that celebrate the new life that awakens where they live. In many ancient European cultures, Imbolc was the celebration of the goddess Brigid, who many consider the original goddess figure. Brigid later became a Catholic saint, the original pagan aspects folded into Christianity. She is considered by some as the goddess of fire and light, as well as reproduction and fertility...Imbolc is said to be translated as “in the womb”.

            In Ireland, feasts are held, pulling out some of the last winter stores as an offering to the earth’s promise of new seeds to be sown and future crops to be harvested. Many cultures in the past also considered this “lambing season”, when breeding of livestock and pregnant ewes and other animals would reproduce to add to the flock. This is also a time of weather divination, where people would look for the appearance of snakes or badgers from their dens to gauge how much longer the winter would be (and where the modern custom of Groundhog’s Day may have evolved).

            Not only is Imbolc and its time of the year a time to reawaken the life of the earth, it is also a time of purification and cleaning out old, cooped-up things in our homes and lives that we are ready to let go and improve. This time of clearing away later became to be known as the annual tradition of “spring cleaning”.

            Here at Sabbat Box we recognize and celebrate all of these different aspects of Imbolc. We are curating items to honor our connection to these traditions and rites and who they provide focus to of our magickal practice and Path. Much like early spring fruits and vegetables, we are collecting a group of items that will serve to help awaken all of your senses and help you to honor this amazing point in the Wheel of the Year.

            2017 Candlemas/Imbolc Sabbat Box - Subscription Box For Witches and Pagans

            Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

            Imbolc is upon us, and that means that the long darkness of winter will soon be wiped away by the light and green of spring. The earth is about to wake up again to bring new life and new opportunity for growth and increase. Our ancestors saw the lengthening days and knew the divine would once again bless those who made ready for the coming season.

            This year’s Sabbat Box for Imbolc is a collection of products with this preparation in mind. One aspect of this preparation in Pagan circles is purification, and we have focused on this aspect to bring members the tools they need to ritually prepare minds and bodies for the coming work of light.

              • WHAT:

              • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at The Witches’ Almanac or the Sabbat Box Store
              • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This handy guide is filled with information and guidance for the entire coming year as well as a permanent reference - perfect for any practitioner’s library.

              BREAKDOWN
              As you may know, when it comes to working magick and performing rituals and spells, there are many ways one can go about it. Though our methods and the manner in which we approach our spell work can be completely different from one another, some of the most important aspects of spellwork most witches and Pagans will commonly agree on are: practice, timing, and further educating ourselves on the various topics within the craft. With that said, we wanted to include something inside the Imbolc Sabbat Box to help aid you with your magickal practice while working as a guide to assist you throughout the entire new year. Since 1971, The Witches’ Almanac has been providing the Pagan community an invaluable written and pictorial guide on astrology, the occult, folklore, and magick. Inspired by The Old Farmer’s Almanac, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar, weather forecasts, horoscopes, legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, and spells, as well as interviews by Pagans for Pagans.


              • PURIFICATION RITUAL BATHS •


              Purification Ritual Baths By The Sacred Well

              ITEM 2: PURIFICATION RITUAL BATHS.........$8.00
              • WHAT:
               Handcrafted Purification Ritual Bath, 4.0 oz
              • WHO MAKES IT?: 
              The Sacred Well
              • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available via The Sacred Well or the Sabbat Box Store
              • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This intoxicating bath blend is a powerful tool to be used for purification and a great way to prepare for ritual or mediative work.

              BREAKDOWN
              Staying in line with our general theme of purification and purification magick for the Imbolc Sabbat Box, we decided to include this generous-sized handcrafted herbal purification bath from The Sacred Well. This particular ritual bath conatins a proprietary blend of black Hawaiian volcanic salt, red Hawaiian salt, white sage, rosemary, rue, hyssop, agrimony, and essential oils--all picked specifically for ritual bathing. In many magickal traditions, it is a common practice before working magick to not only purify and cleanse your sacred space, but to also purify and ritually cleanse ourselves as well. The easiest way to do this is to take a ritual bath. It is believed that you should go into any magickal working without any spiritual attachments, and the purpose behind a ritual bath is to rid ourselves of anything that we do not want joining us in our magickal pursuits, including negative thoughts, intentions, or bad energy.

              Instructions: Place 1/4 of the purification ritual bath into your tub. If you prefer, you can fill a cotton tea bag with 1/4 of the ritual bath blend to steep in your tub or hang from your shower. You could also steep the contents of the bath in a pot of water and then pour the water over yourself in the shower after the water has cooled. You could use it as a scrub as well. Each pouch contains enough product for four separate baths. Use roughly one ounce (or 1/4 of the bag) per bath.


              • PURIFICATION BEESWAX SPELL CANDLE  •


              Beeswax Purification Spell Candles By Lailoken's Awen - Imbolc Sabbat Box

              ITEM 3: BEESWAX PURIFICATION CANDLE..........$7.95

              • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This all-natural candle made from beeswax is a ideal tool for purification for ritual, meditation, and spellwork.

              BREAKDOWN
              It is believed that the idea of “spring cleaning” may stem from the common practices of our ancestors during this time of year. The return of the sun and warming days allowed our ancestors to go outside of the home more. Since they had been stuck inside so long during the winter, it was a common practice to cleanse and purify their dwellings around Imbolc. In honor of this tradition we included a pure white handcrafted beeswax candle from Lailoken’s Awen in the Imbolc Sabbat Box to spiritually purify one’s self or one’s space. Each candle is also ritually anointed and spiritually charged by Lailoken himself for purification magick.

              Lailoken's Awen sells handcrafted, natural magical supplies like spell candles, ritual oils and spiritual tools. 

              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.

              BREAKDOWN
              Burning incense is something we as a people have been doing for thousands of years. Our ancestors would often burn sacred blends of herbs and resins as a way of making an offering, as well as honoring the divine. More so, the art of burning incense is done to purify your sacred space. These handcrafted stick incense from Charme et Sortilege (Charm & Spell) are perfect for such uses. Wise Owl stick incense are handmade with 100% all-natural herbal components. Each stick is soaked in a pure essential oil blend corresponding to its intent and charged for its listed use.

              BREAKDOWN 
              Selenite is such a mystifying stone. Just watching the light and sheen reflect on the stone’s sufrace can be entrancing. It is said that selenite is a stone of psychic intuition, mental clarity, spiritual growth, love, and purification. Since the new year is now upon us, many of us tend to seek positive growth and change to make our lives better for the coming year, and who wouldn’t mind a little clarity to help guide us when needed? Use your selenite heart to quiet your mind and meditate with when you seek clarity or growth.

As we travel into the new year together, we wanted to offer our members a unique token of power in which one could connect with this year and could be used to find one’s own meaning and purpose.

              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.

              Imbolc 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Earth Reawakened 0

              2017 Imbolc-Candlemas Sabbat Box Theme Release


              • EARTH REAWAKEND •


              Imbolc Sabbat Box Theme Release - Earth Reawakened The Goddess, dormant since Her Cronehood at Yule, reawakens at Imbolc as the pure Maiden, the “first” aspect of Her triple manifestation. Because She waxes and wanes like our moon, the Goddess waxes at this time, her renewed fertility about to blossom, soon to become one with the God at Beltane. She has shaken off the old, and prepares for the new.

              Imbolc is a time to reawaken. Like the earth itself, it is a time to prepare ourselves, to make ready for the spring and summer ahead. Part of that preparation involves rituals of purification and renewal while looking forward to the brighter days and months ahead on the Wheel of the Year.

              The light of the sun is beginning to return, the days lengthening now, and the light and energy of growth and increase is making its way into our lives. We are anticipating the things to come, the eventual harvesting of the seeds we sow at this time of year. Hopefully we learn and grow along with the length of days, positivity and light following us as we move forward.

              We have selected items for 2017’s Imbolc Sabbat Box with these aspects in mind. Purification and reawakening, celebration of the Maiden Goddess and sparking magical inspiration toward the coming season are just some of the aspects of the items we are including in this year's Imbolc Sabbat Box. We hope you find what we are offering helpful and meaningful to your Imbolc observance this year.

              2017 Imbolc/Candlemas Sabbat Boxes are scheduled to ship out 1/25/17.
