• 2018 OSTARA SABBAT BOX • ELEMENTAL MAGICK • BOX BREAKDOWN •
Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!
Before you know it, the snow and ice and cold will once again give way to the green warmth of spring. The wheel of the year turns as always, the light beginning to lengthen our days since the solstice, and thoughts of new life and new growth abound. We lift our eyes to the reawakening of the sun Lord and give reverence to our moon Lady.
This year at Sabbat Box we have curated a collection of items that will hopefully enhance the advent of spring and prepare ourselves and our circles for the growth and increase that is to come. We purify our intention, solidify our will, and protect our newly-cleared space to do the work that the power of life and light can help manifest.
- 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 •
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:
- Elemental Magick
- Spiritual Charging
- Drawing forth the elements
- Connecting with the elements individually and as a whole
- Working with and learning about “elementals"
During the early dawn of spring, it becomes more and more apparent that the days are growing longer. This point in the year starts to bring warmer temperatures, new flowers, and for some the last melting of this past winter’s snow. Our ancestors understood the significance of this time as an indicator for how the rest of the year would pan out--through the summer and into the fall. A successful crop planting during this window of time in the Wheel of the Year meant the difference between a bounty and a struggle. The basic building blocks of life (and survival) within nature were re-emerging and it was up to them to recognize those elements and use them to reach their goals.
For this year’s Ostara Sabbat Box, we have curated a box that brings together this important time in the life cycle of our environment and the basic elements that even our earliest ancestors recognized were important for survival. Earth for planting, water for irrigation, air for pollination, and fire (the sun) for growth and increase. When we have a more complex understanding of what constitutes scientific elements, these basic four cardinal elements are also part of the foundation behind our magick and our magickal pursuits. It is with the elements that we connect with and correspond to in order to draw up our power to manifest a specific outcome. Just like the nature of spring, the elements combine together to bring about life, and in magick, the elements combine together to bring about change and power.

One of the items that we just knew that needed to be included within this special box of elemental magick was a charging plate. For many of those who practice the craft, it is common for people to spiritually or ritually “charge” spell supplies, ritual tools, or magickal components prior to incorporating these items into our practices. In a nutshell, it is believed that when we “charge” an item, we are giving it purpose--essentially “breathing life” into the item. A charging plate in and of itself acts a s afocal point where you are able to direct your intent and energy into the item(s) you wish to charge.
Each charging plate included in the box contains each of the four main alchelmical symbols that represent Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, along with a circle and intersecting lines and center point to represent the fifth element of spirit of “aether”. The circle and its points also represent the fluid connections between the elements as well. Each charging plate is custom made from red cedarwood specially for Sabbat Box by Alaska Laser Maid.
ABOUT THE VENDOR:
Located in Thorne Bay, Alaska on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska Laser Maid is a one woman shop specializing in laser cutting and engraving boxes, creating custom esoteric and divination tools (runes and things), using locally harvested, locally milled red and yellow cedar.

• SABBAT BOX FEATURED VENDOR - LIGHT OF ANJOU •
COMPANY: LIGHT OF ANJOU
ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY SELL: Light of Anjou is an online witchery shop that specializes in creating handcrafted ritual oils, spell candles, herbal potions, apothecary items, occult art and more!
Located in Maine, Light of Anjou was started by Anjou. Anjou is a hedge witch toiling in herbal potions, ritual and therapeutic oils, mystical art, divination, spirit work, and magickal tools. Currently crafting out of an 1800’s farmhouse deep in the forested mountains of New England.
Anjou draws upon the power of the moon phases, the flux of elements, and the spiritual realm to craft powerful tools to help you in your witching journey. From psychic dream pillows to healing herbal potions and topicals, to ritual oils and divination tools, Light of Anjou is in and of itself a cabinet of curiosities, meant to tangle you in its web of Victorian Gothic romance, the mystery of the occult, and the magic in the deep, dark forest where the will-o-whisps dwell.
In alchemy, it is understood that the four elements arose from chaos, and it is their contrary action (or counterbalance) that keeps our bodies in a state of equilibrium. I always include the fifth element, Spirit/Aether, because it is a realm that I believe is intertwined with ours.🌲🌬🔥🌊💫Working with the elements has been absolutely instrumental to my practice, but lately I find myself drawn only to Earth. As deep as I am in the roots and the soil, I long to be deeper. There are times that I lay in the snow and try to sink into the ground beneath and submerge myself under its weight. Feel the gentle pulsating of the plants and trees that await the coaxing of Spring. Lie still and solid and draw in water through my fingertips. What is it about feeling heavy that makes you want to feel heavier?🖤

Shawn has been a practicing Druid and Wiccan for over 25 years, and is also a practitioner of the Golden Dawn system of magic. In his professional life he is a clinical aromatherapist and herbalist.

Ten years ago he began his education in aromatherapy and herbalism, and has studied extensively over the years not only their therapeutic properties, but also their energetic properties. As well as compounding blends based on their energetic properties, Lailoken takes the creation process one step further and utilizes the energies of the universe around us by creating each product on the appropriate day, during the appropriate hour, and even during the proper phase of the Moon and time of the year.

• TIME •
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.

• OSTARA SABBAT BOX - ELEMENTAL MAGICK •
Are you ready for spring? ~ Boxes are scheduled to ship March 9
This point in the year starts to bring warmer temperatures, new flowers, and--for some--the last melting of this past winter’s snow. During this time, some of us think about planting a vegetable garden or trying some new landscaping, which can not only make our homes more beautiful, but give us a great excuse to get out of the house we were trapped in all winter and enjoy the warm air and sunshine.
Our ancestors, however, had a more practical reason to start working as the days started to lengthen: they understood the significance of this time as an indicator for how the rest of the year would go through the summer and into the fall. A successful crop planting during this window of time in the Wheel of the Year meant the difference between a bounty and a struggle. The basic building blocks of life (and survival) were re-emerging and it was up to them to recognize those elements and use them to reach their goals.
Ostara, which is all about growth, fertility, and increase, is a celebration of this time of life and its gifts. When we consider our own goals in life as the year goes on, we too must recognize this window of time as an opportunity to take the steps toward a year of increase and abundance.
For this year’s Ostara Sabbat Box, we are curating a box that brings together this important time in the life cycle of our environment and the basic elements that even our earliest ancestors recognized were important for survival. Earth for planting, water for irrigation, air for pollination, and fire (the sun) for growth and increase...while we have a more complex understanding of what constitutes scientific elements, these basic four cardinal elements are also part of the foundation behind our magick and our magickal pursuits. It is with the elements that we connect with and correspond to in order to draw up our power to manifest a specific outcome. Just like the nature of spring, the elements combine together to bring about life, and in magick, the elements combine together to bring about change and power.
We are very much looking forward to sharing with you this special box of elemental magick for Ostara, with hopes of you finding a deeper connection to the elements themselves, while further connecting with each of their specific properties on both a magickal and mundane level.
