    Midsummer Sabbat Box Herbal Witchery Witch Subscription Box For Litha Summer Solstice

    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
    • Hedge Witchery
    • Green Witchery
    • Protection/Purification
    • Using herbs in unique applications and in different methods to aid in your spiritual practice

    The sun. The center of our solar system. Our life force. Without the sun, we wouldn’t be here. We rely on our star to light the way in the darkness of the universe, to provide warmth and comfort and to grow our food and, of course, our herbs. Historical pagans placed a great emphasis on the use of herbs for medicine and magick. From the use of bay leaves by the Greek oracles of Delphi to reach a trance state, to the cunning woman living on the outskirts of a European town (providing herbal medicine to the sick townspeople), herbs are infused as a part of our history. When focusing on such a historically significant holiday here at Sabbat Box, we wanted to use a theme that not only celebrated the sun’s hard work but also tied in its historical beliefs. With its major popularity last year, we decided to give it another go for Litha and do an Herbal Witchery--part two!

Help your guests feel at home and welcome in your space by sprinkling the herbs across your floor before sweeping or vacuuming them up.

    Because of rue’s diverse historical and magickal significance in legend and lore within cultures all around the world, we wanted to find a way to include it within our boxes. One of the more common yet practical ritual applications it is commonly used in combination with today is making rue water with it (especially within Voodoo, Hoodoo, Santeria and Wicca).

    Rue water itself has a variety of uses; from protection to purification, success to healing, to spell breaking or road opening. It is particularly known for its ability to break evil eye, attract customers, and bring good fortune. With Anjou’s extra addition of tourmaline (a stone known for its shielding and protective properties), it helps to enforce the protective and cleaning aspects of this specific infusion. Add a tiny drop to floor washes or ritual baths, trace your circle with it to protect yourself during your Litha ritual, or use around your home to garner protection. Located in Maine, Light of Anjou is an online witchery shop specializing in ritual tools and spell supplies.

      🔮4 Crystal Ball Cauldron Candles will be available on Thursday’s update at 8pm EST.🔮 . To me, this is the most powerful candle I witchcraft. The ingredients I use are some of my absolute favorite and ones that I feel a true connection with. Clairvoyance through dreams is something that runs on my maternal side and divination has always been paramount to my practice. Mugwort, blue lotus, star anise, black tourmaline, and amethyst are so potent for divination rituals, especially with the blend of cinnamon, jasmine, and cedarwood essential oils. . On a similar note, I’m planning on using the proceeds from this update to get my Pagan Deck of Extrasensory Cards back in stock. If you aren’t familiar with them, they are a more modern version of Zener cards that I developed to help you test and hone your psychic abilities. I used powerful pagan symbols instead of the classic zener symbols in hopes that you would feel a greater connection with the cards. Check out the listing on my website if you’d like to know more about them. They should be back in stock in a couple of weeks.🔮🖤 .

      Herbal Witchery 2018 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.

      Midsummer 2018 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Herbal Witchery #2 0

      2018 Midsummer Sabbat Box Theme - Herbal Witchery #2



      2018 Midsummer Sabbat BoxThe world grows warmer, the days longer and the trees greener.  The sun rises high overhead towards the noon-hour as the Wheel of the Year turns once again.  Here, we find ourselves nearing the Summer Solstice. But what’s in a word? “Solstice” comes from Latin root words “sol” and “sistere.” 

      Sol.  Sun.
      Sistere. Stopped. 

      Quite literally, “solstice” translates to “the day the sun stood still.”  Looking back at what our ancestors must have thought, it’s no surprise as to why!  On the solstice, the sun seems to simply stop at the height of the day, hanging in the summer sky.


      Ancient Egyptians may have observed the solstice as it corresponded with the Nile’s rise, offering prediction for flooding.  Some Greek calendars used the Summer Solstice to mark the start of their new year. Romans celebrated Vestalia, a holiday where married women could enter temples designated for virgins only in order to make offerings to the goddess of the home, Vesta. Ancient Europeans celebrated the solstice with bonfires to add to the sun’s growing energy, encouraging a bountiful harvest.  And, of course, we have a number of ancient structures that align with the Summer Solstice, including the ever-popular Stonehenge.

      Modern pagans celebrate the solstice as part of the Wheel of the Year, an adaptation of eight ancient pagan holidays of significance.  Also known as Litha and Midsummer, the Summer Solstice is the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year as the sun reaches its apex in the astrological sign of cancer. Historically, it was the longest work day available, so we often associate this holiday with achievements, hard work and determination. We light bonfires, make music and celebrate success within our work, with all of the festivities being committed in the name of the sun.

      The sun.  The center of our solar system.  Our life force.  Without the sun, we wouldn’t be here.  We rely on our star to light the way in the darkness of the universe, to provide warmth and comfort and to grow our food and, of course, our herbs.  Historical pagans placed a great emphasis on the use of herbs for medicine Oracle of Delphi - Sabbat Box 2018 Midsummer Box Theme Releaseand magic.  From the use of bay leaves by the Greek oracles of Delphi to reach a trance state to the cunning woman living on the outskirts of a European town and providing herbal medicine to the sick townspeople, herbs are infused as part of our history.  When focusing on such a historically significant holiday here at Sabbat Box, we wanted to use a theme that not only celebrated the sun’s hard work but also tied in historical beliefs.  With its popularity last year, we couldn’t think of a theme more representative of this sabbat, or more beloved by our subscribers, than Herbal Witchery – Part Two!

      At the time of the Summer Solstice, a number of herbs reach their peak.  We see these herbs lining the pathways of the forest in the hot summer sun, dancing in the warm breeze of the fields and climbing their way down the rolling hills to reach the roads we tread.  We grow them in our gardens, harvest them from our farms and keep them in small pots near our kitchen.  They are available to us at every turn, reaching for our hands, encouraging us to seek their wisdom.

      As pagans and witches, we use herbs in a variety of ways, from the simple seasoning of our food to the many magical applications they provide.  We anoint our candles with them, grind them into incense, leave them as offerings on our altars and cleanse our homes with them.  We store them in our herb cabinets and apothecaries carefully, honoring them and their wisdoms.  Many of these herbs have correspondences with solar energy, ensuring success, happiness and fruitful rewards.  Every herb is infused with the sun’s light, the warmth of the summer days required to for them to grow.  They are, in a word, perfect for the Summer Solstice.

      2018 Midsummer - Litha Sabbat Box - Herbal Witchery

      As an integral part of our practices from ancient times to modernity, herbs are often one of the first easily-accessible tools for the budding pagan or witch, and a reliable source of magic for the advanced practitioner.  When we compiled this solstice box, we took particular care in curating items that would be of use for any level of practice.  Continuing with our theme from last year, we wanted to place a particular focus on the herbs themselves, including items that would be both practically useful and magically inspirational.  We can’t wait to send these your way!
