2018 Imbolc Sabbat Box - Witch Subscription Box Wiccan Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

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.

    • 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.

    Authentic Hand Crafted Brigid’s Cross with Info Card and Bag
    • WHO MAKES IT?: 
    Naomh Padraig Handcrafts
    • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available the Sabbat Box Store
    • 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

    • BRIGID PRAYER PARCHMENT •


    Brigid Prayer Parchment - Book of Shadows Page

    ITEM 6: PARCHMENT...............$1.95
    • WHAT:
     Brigid Prayer Parchment/Book of Shadows Page
    • WHO MAKES IT?: 
    Azure Green
    • 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.

Something to aid in the journey to calm my mind, ground myself, and focus.

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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
      • WHAT:
       Handcrafted Purification Beeswax Spell Candle, 4.25-Inch
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Lailoken’s Awen
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at Lailoken's Awen or the Sabbat Box Store
      • 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.

      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: The clean scent of the Moon Goddess incense is a welcome addition to ritual or meditation where new beginnings or purification is desired.

      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.

      2017 Imbolc Sabbat Box Theme - Earth Reawakened Sabbat Box Theme For Imbolc 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.

      • IMBOLC-RITUALS, RECIPES & LORE FOR BRIGID'S DAY •


      Imbolc Rituals Recipes and Lore For Brigid's Day By Llewellyn

      • ITEM 1: IMBOLC BOOK.........$11.99
      • WHAT:
       Imbolc-Rituals, Recipes and Lore for Brigid's Day (part of Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials series) 
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Llewellyn Worldwide & Authored By Carl F. Neal
      • 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 Imbolc 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 those new to the craft, 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 author of Imbolc, Carl F. Neal has been a Pagan teacher and writer since the late 1990’s, specifically in the area of incense creation and incense magic. Carl brings his extensive knowledge in writing Imbolc, highlighting a collection of practices and traditions both old and new surrounding the Sabbat of Imbolc, also known as Brigid’s Day. Some of Carl’s other works include Incense, Incense Magick, and The Magic Toolbox. 

      A brief excerpt from the book—a prayer for healing the heart, mind, and soul:
      Goddess Brigid, Keeper of the Flame, Tender of the Well,
      I come to you to ask for the healing of an injured soul.
      Please look into deepest places within [person’s name]
      and find the injuries that lie beneath the surface.
      I ask that you ease the pain within my/that soul.
      Just as this candle shines, I ask that you
      shine a light on a path towards healing.
      Shine a light so bright and clear that
      the path to healing is unmistakable.
      Please send whatever assistance will be
      needed to make this soul whole once again.

      • WHAT:
       Lunar Renewal Tea
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Cosmophilia Astrological Herbals
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Cosmophilia Store or the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This tea is an excellent way to draw in the renewing energies of Imbolc as well as the planets in a delicious way. Since the last tea we featured inside Sabbat Box was a big hit, we wanted to share another magical tea with our members as well.

      BREAKDOWN

      We selected this fragrant Lunar Renewal Tea because it is hand blended and made from organic and ethically wild grown herbal ingredients that correspond to the Sabbat of renewal, cleansing, and purification, Imbolc. Lunar Renewal Tea can be used in combination with Imbolc rituals (for cakes and  ale, or as an offering), during an esbat or dark moon ritual, or to sip on after mediating or working magick. Each package of tea comes in a resealable bag, which will allow you to keep your tea a fresh as possible.  Cosmophilia Astrological Herbals was founded by Jaysen Paulson in Portland, Oregon.

      • SUN'S EYE - HAND BLENDED RITUAL OIL •


      Brigid Ritual Oil By Sun's Eye

      • ITEM 3: RITUAL OIL.........$12.00
      • WHAT: Brigid Deity Ritual Oil
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Sun's Eye Oils
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sun's Eye Store or via the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This Brigid deity oil is perfect to use for anointing during Imbolc rituals, working magick, as a fragrance oil or even to use to make incense. 

      BREAKDOWN
      Our goal at Sabbat Box is to provide magical inspiration to our members by means of product discovery in the form of tools, as well as information and lore that will help speak to once's spiritual path. Since the Wheel of the Year is closely based off the ancient Celtic calendar It would be hard to overlook the history surrounding Imbolc and the Celtic goddess Brigid. Commonly referred to as “the Goddess of many forms” and represented most often as the “Triple Goddess,” Brigid is known as the goddess of fire, childbirth, change, transformation, wisdom, prophecy, education, protection (among many other things). Since Imbolc is about renewal, change and going forward into the spring, it is easy to see why the Celts would honor such a deity during this fragile time of the year, making it a great item to feature inside this box.

      Use your Brigid ritual oil to help banish what no longer serves you and help you to embrace what is to come. Use it for anointing, as a fragrance oil, in offerings or even use to make incense. This ritual oil by Sun's eye is created by fusing essential and fragrant oils with various ingredients, including rowan berry to make the Brigid oil. 

      Magickal Uses
      • Use to anoint spell candles.
      • Use to anoint yourself or others when entering circle or before ritual.
      • Use to call forth the Goddess Brigid. 
      • Use to anoint your altar or objects.
      • Use as a fragrance oil.
      • Use in an oil warmer.

      • PALO SANTO - SACRED WOOD INCENSE •


      Palo Santo Incense - Sacred Wood Incense

      • ITEM 4: PALO SANTO.........$4.95
      • WHAT: 
      Sacred wood incense
      • WHO MAKES IT?:
      Mother Nature
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?:
       Most metaphysical shops, Sun's Eye Store or the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?
      Palo Santo is a rare wood from a tree by the same name that has been burned by shamans in ritual and sacred spaces for centuries. This wood carries a strong scent and is said to help purify your space.  

      BREAKDOWN
      Palo Santo in Spanish literally means “holy wood” and comes from the tree that predominately grows in Central and South America bearing the same name (also known etymologically as Bursera Graveolens) and features a sweet, smoky citrus aroma. The Palo Santo tree is actually related to the same trees that bring us fragrant resins like frankincense as well as myrrh. What makes Palo Santo different is it is more common to burn the wood of the tree moreso than resin itself. Due to over-harvesting in South America, palo santo is now grown under government management in order to conserve the sacred wood. This has caused the price of the wood to rise due to its limited availability.

      Shamans in Central and South America have been using Palo Santo for hundreds of years, and its use has been adopted by many Pagans around the world as a tool used for purification and cleansing as well as clearing ritual space. Palo Santo is also commonly burned during shamanic journeying and mediating. Use your palo santo by itself or in combination with other sacred herbs and smudges to create your own specially corresponding ritual incense.

      How to burn/use palo santo: 
      • Fetch a small fireproof bowl, cauldron or incense vessel. 
      • Place a piece of your wood next to a burning flame (a lighter or candle will do).
      • Allow the wood to catch fire and burn at one of the ends for a few seconds.
      • Once the wood has caught fire and is starting to emit smoke, extinguish the fire.
      • After extinguished, you will want to keep the palo santo atop a bowl or ash catcher to catch the smoldered embers and to prevent fire. Use the emitting smoke to sense your space.

      • SACRED SABBAT PURIFICATION SPELL CANDLES •


      Sacred Sabbat White Purification Ritual Spell Candles

      • ITEM 5: SPELL CANDLES.........$5.50
      • WHAT IS IT: 6-inch purification white ritual taper spell candles.
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Sabbat Box (exclusive item)
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: These pure white ritual candles provide the means to purge negativity, and purify your sacred space by means of candle magick. 

      BREAKDOWN:

      White—both at once a lack of color and all colors at once (like a prism)—signifies purity, absence of darkness, as well as “a clean slate”, which for most Pagans is a perfect analogy to the renewal and “restart” that Imbolc represents. We have specially packaged these candles to provide our members and friends a way to signify their intent to start anew and embrace the new life that is to come in the new year. 

      One of the religious traditions tied to Imbolc is “Candlemas”, which is a hail back to the original intent of this fire festival: “a festival of lights.” It is only appropriate that we include candles in this Sabbat Box. Whether you use these candles to work magic, cast spells of purification, or simply light your home or space, we believe they provide a tangible celebration of all the hope and renewal that Imbolc represents.

      Each pair of pure shite ritual taper candles comes wrapped in parchment paper. One could use the inside of the wrapper to write down your intent and burn in upon the fire of the white candles. You could also carve and anoint your candles with the corresponding herbs and oils of your intent to work candle magick, or simply use your candles as a focal point on your altar.

      Chant included with your candles:
      Element of fire I light your flame,
      By burning this candle I speak your name,
      Element of fire I call upon your light,
      Come forth this sacred sabbat,
      To purify, cleanse and shine ever bright.

      • WHO MAKES IT?: Via Eclectic Artisans 
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: You can purchase at the Sabbat Box Store.

      We’ve included these cloths as a way to add a renewing accent to whatever area you wish to adorn for the coming sabbats as a way to celebrate the Wheel of the Year while protecting your altar or furniture. Each super soft, lightweight cloth measures in at 36" x 36" making them perfect for altars of any shape or size. Symbolism plays an important role in most Pagan's spiritual practice. The beloved symbols found on each of these altar cloths have various meaning and are considered to be representative of the divine in one way or another. The outsides of each cloth contain various Celtic knot work and beautifully frayed edges. 

      We’ve included one of the following designs in each Sabbat Box based on member preferences of what symbols they connect with most:
      • The Greenman
      • Pentacle
      • Triple Goddess
      • Triple Moon
      • Triquetra


      • CLEAR QUARTZ GEMSTONE SET W/INFO CARD & BAG •


      Clear Quartz Tumbled Gemstone Set

      • ITEM 7: STONE SET.........$1.50
      • WHAT: 
      Clear quartz gemstone set
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Stones sourced from Azure Green and packaged by Sabbat Box
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: You can purchase this set via the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Quartz, one of the most abundant crystals on Earth, corresponds to and represents the renewal and purification themes of Imbolc.

      BREAKDOWN
      Quartz and Imbolc are a perfect fit: both represent purity, clarity, and protection. Clear quartz not only is used in altar placement and personal clearing, but also can fill in as a “universal” corresponding stone for other colors and representations, as light through the quartz (like a prism) can split into all colors of the rainbow. Many practitioners also use quartz, both absolutely clear and those with fine cracks or rutilations as a way of divination (in fact, many very expensive crystal balls are created using large polished spheres of quartz) as well as a spellwork tool to enhance clarity of a situation or intent in magickal workings. We’ve included a small informational card and a large organza bag in each set. Each quartz is roughly .5" to 1.5" in size and makes a great addition to any stone collection.

      • SABBAT BOX SAVINGS & COUPONS •


      Sabbat Box Savings

      SAVINGS & COUPONS:

      Part of our goal is to provide a number of items to our members at a value far above what individuals can purchase on their own. When you add up all of the items inside your Imbolc Sabbat Box, as well as costs for shipping and packaging, you are saving over $19.00. We believe this to be another good reason to be a member. Also, each box we create helps to support Pagan run businesses and their employees. Sabbat Box looks forward to continuing to stay within our mission to work with other Pagan businesses to supply products for each box.

      Coupons are another great feature you will find within Sabbat Boxes. Coupons just add to the overall value of your box and are not included in the "total savings" specified on your information sheet/brochure, but definitely add further value as well as further exclusivity to being a member. Be sure to visit our product suppliers websites and stores to help continue to support their businesses and missions as well.

      ~Our members helped to support 6 Pagan run businesses with their Sabbat Box membership! Unlike some subscription boxes (that only use their own products inside each of their boxes), we work with other Pagans and Pagan owned businesses within the community to purchase and supply the items featured within our boxes. In the end, we want to help the community grow and share our business with companies that share our same values and standards.

      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 candle within a bag, 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.

      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.
