Sabbat Box Samhain Sabbat Box Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

We have come to the favorite Sabbat of many of our members--Samhain! It is time to don the robes, tread into the dark, and hold ritual with friends and loved ones, both present and passed. Many celebrate "The Witches' New Year" with ancestor altars, dumb suppers, and other rituals that both honor those in our past as well as look toward our future.

With that in mind, we decided this year to curate items for a spiritual practice that goes hand-in-hand with Samhain and its focus on both past and future: divination. The practice of intuiting the future using basic tools and systems has been around probably as long as people have been walking the earth. We strive to both understand those things that have happened, both good and bad, and hopefully learn from them, but also look at the signs and portents with specific methods to help us understand where we are headed and what is to come. As cunning folk, we consider divination to be a gift. Whether it is the lines on one’s hand, the cards in a deck, or the leaves at the bottom of a teacup, people have practiced methods of attuning their intuition to hopefully glean insights of what lies ahead and what is to be done to take the next steps in their lives. We gathered the items for the 2017 Samhain Sabbat Box in hopes to help our members look ahead and by looking inward.

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2017 Samhain Sabbat Box - For Cunning Folk Alike - Divination Tools and Wiccan Supplies

    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:

    • Divination work
    • Working past the veil
    • Protection magick
    • Working with the Higher Self
    • Aiding with Samhain rites, spells and magick

    It is during “summer’s end,” on All Hallows’ Eve (the witches’ new year) that we start to embrace the coming darkness. As the veil between the living and the dead fades, we call upon our ancestors and those who came before us, to guide us in the coming months, while honoring them during our rites. We honor the Earth for the final fruit that she bears, and reflect upon the sacrifices we had to make to get to where we are while prepping for the future. Thogh the future for certain may be unknown, and questions may arise, we as cunning folk will use this time to work divination in effort to seek what may be coming our way.

    When we as practitioners are presented with questions, or are heading into the uknown, we put our magick to the test, attempting to find the answers we need with divination, and we proceed to manifest the outcomes we desire with our own magickal pursuits. Divination is a practice that helps us to see our way forward as well as see where we have been. We use divinatory tools to intuit our place and get our bearings of where we are on our path; it is a means to understand the conditions that surround us while helping us to look within to make better choices that will ultimately make us most happy.

    For this year’s Samhain Sabbat Box, we have turned our focus on curating a variety of items that may shine a light on the season’s darkening path--light not from the sky, but from ourselves. Since the magick and celebration of Samhain is versatile, and its significance often greater for most, we wanted to make sure that the items found within our flagship box were equally versatile in their use. On top of versatility, we have also curated items that go hand in hand with this sabbat in particular, tools to aid with parting the veil, protection magick, workgin with spirit guides, workign with our higher selves, divination work, and more.

     Witches Sight Wood Chambered Pendulum Kit with Herbs and Board

    • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store

    BREAKDOWN
    One specific practice that goes hand in hand with Samhain is divination. Divination is “the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.” Since it is believed that the “veil” beteween the living and the dead is at its thinnest on Samhain, many believe it to be an opportune time to communicate with spirit, ancestors, guides, or loved ones. Inside each kit is a wooden chambered pendulum and includes everything you need to work this simple, yet effective, form of divination this Samhain and beyond.

    EACH SET CONTAINS:

    • 1 x Hand carved, wood chambered pendulum - 10.25" long
    • 1 x Bag of Witches Sight divination herbs - 3x4" bag
    • 1 x Custom pagan pendulum board on sturdy card stock - 4.75" x 4.75"

    DIVINATION HERB INGREDIENTS:

    • Mugwort (Psychic power, psychic protection, astral projection, protection)
    • Yarrow (Psychic work, exorcism, courage)
    • Rosemary (Protection, purification)
    • Meadowsweet (Love, divination, peace)
    • Damiana (Used to produce visions, trance work psychic work)
    • Wormwood (Spirit work, summoning spirit, protection, psychic power)

    It is believed that when using a pendulum, you are tapping into and accessing your “higher self,” a.k.a. your subconscious mind, in order to find answers to questions that may lay deep within. Some also believe along with the higher self, beings like spirit, the divine, ancestors, guides, or guardians can be brought forth to assist with providing answers during divinatory work as well. 

    People will use pendulums to dowse for simple yes or no answers to questions or to receive guidance from spirit. Some use them to find lost items, while others will use them to help pick things out for spellwork, like crystals and herbs, or even help to pick tarot cards for a reading. Others may use pendulums to help them to pick out ritual supplies, and some will also use in combination with healing, and Reiki. If at the grocery store, keep a watchful eye out… you might notice that some practitioners will even use their pendulums to help them pick the most ripe or freshest fruits and vegetables on the display. Pendulums are a helpful and easy to use form of divination, and it is recommended that all practitioners have one to assist you with both your magickal and mundane lives.

This stone ironically isn’t a jasper but is actually made up of fossilized seashell, bone, and vegetation from an ancient lake that came under great pressure when the Himalayas were forming.

    Known as a diviner’s stone, Miriam Jasper is said to carry protective qualities due to the hematite inside. It is also said to aid with automatic writing and accessing the akashic records during meditation. It is also known as “calligraphy stone” due to the flowing lines that run through it, like a handwriting
    .

    EACH SET COMES WITH:

    • 1 Miriam Jasper Stone Pyramid
    • 1 Info card for your book of shadows
    • 1 Black felt bag for safe keeping

    If you are ever attempting "automatic writing," keep your pyramid in your opposite writing hand (your non dominate hand), or near where you are writing to help you pick up the vibration or energy of spirit to aid in your automatic writing. Here is a great video on automatic writing by The Witchy Mommy.

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.

    Samhain Sabbat Box Theme for 2017 - The Samhain Box For Cunning Folk Alike

    • THE SAMHAIN BOX - FOR CUNNING FOLK ALIKE •


    Dusk envelops the oranges and reds of decaying leaves; bony trunks and branches blacken against a purpling sky. There are sounds on the forest floor...echoes of unseen things that instill uncertainty, maybe fear. The path becomes hazy, the course forward misted in damp and shadow. The veil of night soon takes us all, and we may sometimes struggle to find our way. As the Wheel turns to the end of one year and the beginning of the next, as the plunge into winter lies just over the horizon and darkness begins to reign, the way forward many not be so clear. Though the coming season make be dark, the light within us will always shine to lead the way.


    Samhain Sabbat Box Theme Release - The Samhain Box - For Cunning Folk AlikeFor this year’s Samhain Sabbat Box, we have turned our focus on curating a variety of items that may shine a light on the season's darkening path--light not from the sky, but from ourselves. Since the magick and celebration of Samhain is versatile, and its significance often greater for most, we wanted to make sure that the items found within our flagship box were equally versatile in their use. On top of versatility, we have also curated items that go specifically hand in hand with this sabbat in particular, tools to aid with parting the veil, divination work, working with spirit guides, our higher selves, and more.


    It is during "summer's end"...on All Hallow's Eve, and the witches' new year, that we start to embrace the coming darkness. As the veil between the living and the dead fades, we call upon our ancestors and those who came before us, to guide us in the coming months, while honoring them during our rites. We honor the Earth for the final fruit that she bears, and reflect upon the sacrifices we had to make to get to where we are, while prepping for the future. Though the future for certain may be unknown, and questions may arise, we as cunning folk use this time to work divination in effort to seek what may be coming our way.

    Samhain Sabbat Box - Witch Subscription Box - Wiccan Subscription Box

    When we as practitioners are presented with questions, or head into the unknown, we put our magick to the test, attempting to find the answers we need with divination, and we proceed to manifest the outcomes we desire with our own magickal pursuits. Divination is a practice that helps us to see our way forward as well as see where we have been. We use divinatory tools to intuit our place and get our bearings of where we are on our path; it is a means to understand the conditions that surround us, to help us make choices that will bring light and life our way, despite the darkness or negativity that can sometimes surround us.

    We hope the items we have curated this year for Samhain bring you light to shine in dark places, to scare away the shadows of uncertainty and bring to focus your own still voice (or the voices of the guides within you) as a way forward through the winter season. We are hopeful that the new "witches' year" will be ever brighter and kinder and that your steps will be sure-footed and sound. Samhain, the witches' new year, is when the veil is thinnest, and we could think of no better way to take advantage of this time than to get in touch with the unspoken, the unaware, the unknown. Whether you look toward your ancestors, your gods, or just yourself, we at Sabbat Box hope this collection of items may help you best connect with the sabbat, while illuminating your magickal path.

    What’s a Poppet? 0


    • WHAT IS A POPPET? WHAT IS A VOODOO DOLL? •


    What Are Voodoo Dolls and Poppets - Sabbat Box Blog

    "The old crone hunches over her work, raising her hand. There is a flash of golden light, a reflection of the fire on a sharp pin. She plunges the pin into the small object she holds: a cloth effigy, its arms and legs splayed out. Just as the pin enters the cloth, across town, a man grabs his stomach, his face a mask of pain and terror. The old crone cackles, her wrath meted out in horrific precision!"



    What is a Voodoo Doll - What is a Poppet?There are few practices of Paganism or witchcraft more widely known--and widely misinformed--to the outside world than the concept and use of “Voodoo dolls.” While the actual items named as such are predominately a myth of twentieth-century popular culture, there are numerous accounts of folk magic and witchcraft practitioners using what is better termed a poppet.

    The term “poppet" actually comes from Middle English, with roots in the Latin word for girl or doll. The word puppet, which came later, also derives from this. The use of a poppet in modern Pagan practice is actually a method of sympathetic magic--having an item represent or correspond to another thing. A poppet, usually being “person-shaped”, often represents someone to whom the magickal working or spell is directed.

    And while pop culture implies anything person shaped is purely for darkness and evil,Black Poppet - Sabbat Box
     that dreaded “voodoo doll”, the reality is poppets can represent any form of intent by its user, good or bad. Health, prosperity, protection, peace...all of these goals can correspond to the use of a poppet as well. Want to protect your loved one while they are away on travel? A poppet, filled with stones, herbs, or other materials that correspond to your goals and connect with that loved one can be a powerful form of directed will and intention. Worried about a coworker that has been causing strife or difficulties at your job? A poppet representing this person can be utilized to diminish or obstruct that person’s negative energies or intentions.

    We have included a kit for making your own poppet within the 2016 Samhain Sabbat Box, and we hope we have helped to widen the understanding of this often-maligned Pagan practice. As Samhain is a time devoted for many Pagans as a devotion to those who have passed on and the wisdom of our ancestors, the poppet in the Sabbat Box can represent someone who you hold dear and wish to “hear from” in your everyday life, to remind you of the care they had for you, the wisdom they may have imparted, and the joy they brought to your life. It can also be used to draw in those spirits of the departed for protection. Whatever your intent may be, adding different methods of magick into your practice helps to broaden your knowledge of the craft and help further inspire you to work your craft in unique ways -- our main goal and objective here at Sabbat Box. 

    No sharp pins necessary ;-)

    2016 Samhain Sabbat Box - Beyond The Veil

    Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

    The Wheel of the Year once again has reached the end of the summer and autumn harvest time, and Samhain represents that time in nature when crops are out of the ground and the snow has not yet fallen, ensuring a clear path between our world and the one Beyond. This is a common time for many Pagans to commune with their ancestors and loved one who have passed on, to honor the love and wisdom that they gave while they were still with us and to not forget the lessons that they shared.

    We wanted to focus this Samhain on the tools and materials that will allow you to safely navigate the space between spaces, which can provide a conduit between the seen and the unseen, the known and the Unknown. Whether it is an honoring ritual, divination, or meditation, these items give their user protection against negative forces or energies while working in the Beyond.

      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Charme et Sortilege or the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A poppet is a powerful from of sympathetic magick and has a multitude of uses.

      BREAKDOWN 
      This Samhain we wanted to include something unique for our members that would coincide with the Sabbat as well as the thinning of the veil, so we found these wonderful hand sewn poppet kits from our Canadian friends at Charme et Sortilege wiccan supplies store

      Each hand crafted poppet kit comes with everything you need to create your very own protection poppet. The poppet in this particular kit is meant to act as an effigy of protetion and can be used to summon and house protective spirits and energies (especially while the veil is thin). Poppets can also be used for other things depending on your intent. It can serve as protection for a particular person or place, a representation of love or healing, a conjure doll, a voodoo or spirit doll--all of which are made and used differently depending on your purpose and need. One of the great things about a poppet kit like this is that it is so versatile.

      This particular poppet kit comes with three packets of protection-corresponding herbs for filling (star anise, raspberry leaf, and alfalfa), a gemstone (magnetic hematite) for attraction and drawing in protection, a filling stick, needle and thread, as well as basic instructions on how to use it. 

      Located in Montreal, Charme et Sortilege (aka Charm and Spell), creates and sells high quality, beautifully crafted spiritual supplies for those who practice the craft.

      • BEYOND THE VEIL - SPECIAL EDITION GEM ESSENCE HERBAL ELIXIR •


      Beyond The Veil Gem Essence Herbal Elixir - Highest Self Elixirs

      • ITEM 2: SPECIAL EDITION ELIXIR.......$12.00
      • WHAT:
       Beyond The Veil - Gem Essence Herbal Elixir
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Highest Self Elixirs
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Highest Self Elixirs or the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This elixir is made to help connect to the space beyond the veil to commune with those who have passed on from this world.

      BREAKDOWN
      When we work magick, meditate, or work a spell, we open ourselves spiritually in order to manifest our intent. That said, there are times that we may want to invite those who have gone beyond the veil into our practice--when working divination, for instance--and there are times we may want to venture beyond the veil and open ourselves up further in order to connect with the guides and petition our ancestors to provide us guidance and answers during meditation, divination, past life regression, or shamanic journeying. Since Samhain is an ideal time to work with and connect with our ancestors and those who have come before us, we wanted to add to this year’s Samhain Sabbat Box a product to help make this task a little easier, and this elixir does just that!

      We wanted to include a quality elixir from a reputable source, and this is why we decided to team up with Aemen Bell, the founder and owner of Highest Self Elixirs, to curate this particular item for your Samhain Box. This elixir was specially formulated by Aemen herself in effort to assist you with working beyond the veil. Aemen came up with this special formulation which is made specifically to help open the third eye and relax your crown chakra. Ingredients include: wildcrafted flowers of mugwort, chicory, purple loosestrife, organic elderberries, organic lavender, and crystal essences of Scolecite, amethyst, black obsidian, apophyllite and quartz in a base of organic grape/cane alcohol. Beyond the Veil was made during a pisces full moon.

      Highest Self Elixirs is the premier source for herbal crystal elixirs and has over 20 years of experience with herbalism and crafting quality herbal products. Highest Self Elixirs are always made with fresh wildcrafted and organic herbs. All of their elixirs are made with organic, gluten free alcohol. Each elixir is also made under relevant moon phases and with specific intent.

      • TRADITIONAL FOUR THIEVES VINEGAR •


      Traditional Four Thieves Vinegar - Sabbat Box Exclusive Product

      • ITEM 3: EXCLUSIVE CURIO.........$7.00
      • WHAT: Traditional Hand Crafted Four Thieves Vinegar
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Exclusive Sabbat Box Product
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Four Thieves Vinegar has a long history of use in protection and warding off negative attack energies, perfect for use during Samhain.

      BREAKDOWN
      It is from the legend of the four thieves that witches and magickal practitioners have adopted the use of this powerful liquid. This potent concoction is a base of apple cider vinegar infused with parsley, rosemary, white sage, thyme, lavender, garlic, and clove, and was mixed and cured during the course of a rare “black moon”, which only occurs about once every three years. Use this Four Thieves Vinegar for protection as the veil is thin--a defense against psychic attacks, banishment of unwanted enemies or entities, as well as for healing magick and spells.

      Legend of the Four Thieves:
      As the black plague swept through France, four thieves looted the dead without fear of falling ill or getting infected. When they were apprehended for their crimes, they confessed the ingredients of their secret concoction in exchange for their lives. They said they covered themselves in a vinegary mixture prior to coming in contact with the dead or the infected, claiming this is what kept them safe. It is from this story that witches and magickal practitioners adopted the use of four thieves vinegar. It is most commonly used in rituals and spells that pertain to protection, banishing, and healing.

      Skull Candles - Hand Carved Skull Candles

      • ITEM 4: HAND CARVED CANDLES.........$7.00
      • WHAT: Hand carved black and white skull candles

      • WHO MAKES IT?: Sourced via Eclectic Artisans

      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?:
       The Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: These Dual Skull Candles are a great way to honor ancestors or highlight the focus of Samhain on those who have passed on. 

      BREAKDOWN
      One of the most common themes in reference to observing Samhain is honoring our ancestors, as well as honoring family, friends, and loved ones who have passed away. An easy way to honor and remember those who have left us is to light a candle in their name. We included these hand carved black and white skull candles in this year’s Sabbat Box to light upon an ancestor altar, to burn in remembrance of someone who has passed, or to burn while working magick or performing a Samhain ritual that involves summoning the spirits of those who have crossed over.

      • GRAVEYARD DUST •


      Graveyard Dust Ritual Curio

      • ITEM 5: RITUAL CURIO.........$6.50
      • WHAT IS IT: Ritually Consecrated Graveyard Dust
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Charme et Sortilege
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Charme et Sortilege or the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This popular spell and ritual tool is used often for workings involving spirits and the dead.

      BREAKDOWN

      Graveyard dust is a versatile and potent tool that can be used for a wide range of ritual and magickal workings. It is often used to aid in spells or rituals dealing with spirits and the dead, as well as various forms of spirit magick. It is commonly used to invoke or petition the spirits of the dead and seek protection. This graveyard dust is made by Charme et Sortilege, who specializes in crafting ritual tools and spell supplies, and is made from a traditional recipe that includes sulfur powder and valerian root.


      • PAGAN SPELL INCENSE •


      Pagan Spell Incense by S.A.C.

      • ITEM 6: INCENSE.........$2.50
      • WHAT IS IT: Pagan Spell Incense
      • WHO MAKES IT?: S.A.C. (Sandesh Agarbathi Co).
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store or most metaphysical stores.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: The exotic scents of this incense blend will add another dimension to spell and ritual work.

      BREAKDOWN

      The light and spicy aroma of these Pagan Spell stick incense will go perfectly with your next ritual, spell, or meditation. S.A.C., which stands for Sandesh Agarbathi Company, is a new brand of stick incense to be featured in Sabbat Box. Each stick is hand rolled and made with anise essential oil and other protective herbs. We chose this incense because it contained Anise, which is an herb that corresponds to protection and purification and makes a festive and favorable correspondence when performing spellwork this Samhain.

      Samhain Sabbat Box - Beyond The Veil

      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 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.

      Beyond the Veil Sabbat Box Breakdown

      Samhain 2016 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Beyond The Veil 4

      Samhain Sabbat Box Theme for 2016 Samhain Box


      • BEYOND THE VEIL •


      "The way is shut. It was made by those who are Dead, and the Dead keep it, until the time comes. The way is shut.”
      —J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

      Representation of going beyond "The Veil" during SamhainThe Dead speak to us all the time. We may hear a voice of a family member, a friend, a lover—of those who has since passed on. The voices remind us of who they were and what they meant to us. Their words of wisdom and friendship and kindness never leave us, even if their physical presence has long since disappeared. We can seek the words and admonishments of our ancestors and loved ones as lights on our own path.

      The boundary between us and the Dead can feel as thick and as blocked as a vault door, or as thin and fragile as a spiderweb. Many Pagans refer to the boundary between the living and the dead as "the veil." The grand sabbat of Samhain affords us the ability to look beyond the veil, as it is said that the veil is at its thinnest during this time of year — it asks us to look back and into the darkness and find the counsel of past lives who have touched ours.

      The theme for this Samhain’s Sabbat Box is all about moving (or at least looking) beyond that veil: to honor those who came before us and gave to us the things we need in our own lives. Spend some time in your sacred space, looking beyond the veil. Try your hand at a new form of divination and see what those voices might whisper to you, the Living. Ask questions, search your memories, and allow the wisdom of those who love you and have moved on to guide you through the darkness, and beyond the veil. The items you will find within the 2016 Samhain Sabbat Box will consist of an array of magickal supplies that one can utilize when working beyond the veil and working within the shadows as well as honoring those who came before us.

      Samhain Sabbat Box - The Witches Sabbath

      Greetings Sabbat Box Members!

      The end of the year is fast approaching. It’s getting dark a little earlier every day, and stays that way just a little longer every morning. While many have been raised to think this time of year is just about dressing in silly costumes, knocking on neighbors’ doors, and hauling in as much candy as our make-shift pillowcase/goody bag would hold, those who have headed down the spiritual path of Paganism realize there is so much more to experience, appreciate, and learn about All Hallows’ Eve.

      As you will see from the list of items below, we’ve done our best to marry the festive enjoyment that our modern society has cultivated around the 31st of October, but also focus on the powerful work that our paths can conjure from this magical time of year. We worked hard to curate items inside this box that would help one appreciate the importance of this holiday as well as, maybe, offer a little smirk and a wink (incense from freshly-squeezed vampires, anyone?) and even threw in a little morsel that you may have found at the bottom of that pillowcase years ago on November 1st.

      Wherever your traditions, your path, or your craft take you, this “Witches’ New Year” can be a wonderful time to reflect, assess, and honor the time that we have been given on this plane, and to honor those who came before us as the veil thins, inviting our ancestors to visit us once again. We sincerely hope you enjoy what we have put together inside the Samhain box and we hope you enjoy putting these magical items to use in your own special way.

      • SAMHAIN-RITUALS, RECIPES & LORE FOR HALLOWEEN •


      Samhain Rituals Recipes and Lore For Halloween By Diana Rajchel -Sabbat Box

      • ITEM 1: SAMHAIN BOOK.........$11.99
      • WHAT:
       Samhain-Rituals, Recipes and Lore for Halloween (part of Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials series) 
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Llewellyn Worldwide & Authored By Diana Rajchel
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: You can purchase copies via the Sabbat Box Store or via Llewellyn.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Llewellyn has been a trusted source for books on Paganism, Magick and New Age topics since 1901. This particular book features spells, recipes, lore, invocations, correspondences, crafts and rituals that will help to inspire you to celebrate Samhain in your own unique way.

      BREAKDOWN:
      Part of what we wish to do here at Sabbat Box is to provide further resources
      for our members pertaining to paganism, witchcraft and the Sabbats. The Sabbat Essentials series are wonderful resource books and will truly help you find inspiration on how to celebrate the Sabbat in your own special way. Some may say that these books are geared more towards beginners, but you would be surprised to read how much information is packed within these books, which is helpful for both seasoned practitioners as well as a novice! We decided to feature Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials books when we started Sabbat Box, as this line of books is brand new to Llewellyn, (making them first edition prints) and they correlate perfectly with what Sabbat Box is all about. In fact, these first edition printings come out only a few weeks before we ship each Sabbat Box, which makes our members some of the first people to actually own and read them. The book’s author, Diana Rajchel, has written other books on Paganism, including her most recent book, "Divorcing A Real Witch," and has also contributed to many other popular Llewellyn publications

      We believe that every Pagan can gain something from this collection of Samhain practices, or at least inspire you to try something new that you may not have thought to do before. You will find an array of fantastic information pertaining to Samhain/Halloween, including plenty of rituals, spells and inspiration for your Samhain celebrations. 

      An excerpt from "A Banishment of Ill Spirits" on page 163.
      I sweep you out;
      I turn you about,
      Troublesome spirits,
      Go to the gods!
      Leave here for the rivers,
      Depart the skies--
      I bid you, fly!
      I'll not have you linger,
      With your venomous trouble.
      I'll know if you hang on!
      I pry you loose, claw by finger,
      Command you with the charge:
      Count every drop of water in every lake,
      Ocean, river and sea;
      Count each grain of rice that ever was,
      Count each grain that shall ever be;
      Count every leaf on every tree,
      That will fall or that will be,
      Never again return--
      Don't come near me!

      These books have been a great hit within the Sabbat Box community and we continue to plan on including the Sabbat Essentials series until Ostara of next year...by that point we will have included each book from the Sabbat Essentials series within each Sabbat Box for the first year.

      Samhain 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 filler for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by the printers, individually placing each candle within a bag, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand, taping each and every box by hand as well as individually printing each and every shipping label and sticking them to your boxes too. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, and so on.

      We really do 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 your Sabbat Box.
