2018 Samhain Sabbat Box - Witches' Sight - Witch Subscription Box Wiccan Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Upon this night of Samhain, as the dead return to the land to be among the living, we honor them and their memory through offerings of food and good drink, reverence, stories of who they once were, and tales of where they have been since their passing. We also embark on efforts of engagement with them through direct conversation and other means of contact. Communicating with the dead improves during this time because of the veil being thin. Therefore acts of divination such as scrying into a mirror or the light of a candle, or via ceromancy (interpreting the candle drippings dripped onto water) can be employed to seek answers from the beyond. As our own ancestors come forth, we welcome their return to offer their insights and blessings as we gaze between the worlds as only witches can.

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2018 Samhain Sabbat Box - Witches' Sight - Wiccan Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

    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:

    • Scrying Work
    • Parting the Veil
    • Candle Magick
    • Divination Work
    • Assistance with Protection
    • Astral Travel/Lucid Dreaming

    As darkness begins to cast itself upon the land and the leaves fade to brown, we wait in anticipation for Samhain. The third and final harvest festival of the cycle which began in August with Lughnasadh. Samhain marks the end of summer and the time to begin preparation for the start of the dark half of the year. We recover our coats, jackets, and heavier clothes from the hidden parts of our closets and dressers. We begin to crave pumpkin spice lattes, apple pies, eggnog, and other warm filling foods. As the digression of daily warmth and light -that peaked months before during Litha- succumbs to the creeping presence of frigid darkness, winter’s glare looks on from the distant horizon.

    The use of flying ointments by witches is a centuries old practice that forms a deeply spiritual and potent relationship between the witch, the cosmos, and the realms be- tween. Used to create an untethered sense of self, flying ointments aid one in achieving a proper trance state that is ideal for acts of magick and forms of divination like scrying as well as aiding one in meditation, astral travel, and dream work. A little goes a long way, so be sure to only apply a dime size amount to one of the following areas: your temples, third eye, back of neck, wrists, or soles of your feet 30 minutes before undertaking any spiritual work. This handcrafted flying ointment from Alchemy and Ashes is made with mugwort, wormwood and vervain (and includes essential oils of anise, frankincense and lavender) as well as ashes from a ritual fire consisting of 9 herbs and woods. It comes in a base of coconut oil and beeswax and charged during a full moon. This item also comes with an info card and a black satin bag. Though this item doesn’t contain toxic ingredients, we recommend not using on sensitive areas!

      👻The Haunting of Misty Hollow Cauldron Candles will be available this evening at 8pm EST👻Scented with a natural blend of oils in 100% soy wax, these spooky cauldrons are perfect for calling upon the spirits. A soft & dusty blend of violet, jasmine, oakmoss, and clove reminds me of a beautiful, fragrant cemetery I used to frequent in the west end of Portland by my old apartment. The cemetery scene in the wax consists of moss, twigs, lavender branches, abandoned rose petals, and a tiny glass bottle containing the tiniest sample of my divination herb blend. A spooky spirit can be seen escaping from the bottle. I will have 4 of these available, however only 2 have perfectly formed ghosts (the other two were my initial tests and have just blobby spirits👻 - they will be slightly discounted).🖤Happy Hauntings.

      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: 10/22 ~ As darkness begins to cast itself upon the land and the leaves fade to brown, we wait in anticipation for Samhain. The third and final harvest festival of the cycle which began in August with Lughnasadh. Samhain marks the end of summer and the time to begin preparation for the start of the dark half of the year. We recover our coats, jackets, and heavier clothes from the hidden parts of our closets and dressers. We begin to crave pumpkin spice lattes, apple pies, eggnog, and other warm filling foods. As the digression of daily warmth and light -that peaked months before during Litha- succumbs to the creeping presence of frigid darkness, winter’s glare looks on from the distant horizon...


      2018 Samhain Sabbat Box - Witches' Sight Sabbat Box Theme - Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and PagansAs pagans and witches, we know what changes, advantages, and adventures await! This year, Samhain occurs on Wednesday, October 31st which is the planetary day of Mercury. The moon (in Leo) will be waning and nearing its last quarter phase before becoming New on November 7th where it enters Scorpio. Happening on a Wednesday during a waning moon, Samhain establishes the perfect magickal environment to ensure that personal reflection and introspection become the ideal focus for any witches’ gathering on this particular night. As Mercury is directly related to communication, the ability to send and receive of messages will be heightened. With the added waning moon -being related to introspection and self-knowledge- make soul searching and discovering those much needed answers to life dwelling in the realms beyond an even more accessible reality.

      Despite popular culture, we witches know that the name Samhain is pronounced ‘SOW-inn’ or ‘SOW-win’ and is a Gaelic word and festival that historically occurred from sunset on October 31st to the sunset of November 1st also making it known as November Eve in some circles. The name Samhain itself is popularly understood to mean summer’s end, as according to some individuals this understanding is derived from the spelling Samfuin, which can be broken down into sam ('summer') and fuin ('end'). It should be no surprise to anyone who is even slightly familiar with it, that Samhain is the ancient festival to which we owe for the modern existence of Halloween. As the commonly held beliefs and cultural practices associated with Halloween have been derived from Samhain’s own history and lore. It is, after all, a testament to Samhain’s enduring legacy and presence in the world.

      2018 Samhain Sabbat Box - Witches' Sight Sabbat Box Theme - Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and PagansAncient Irish Mythology reveals Samhain as being one of the four primary seasonal festivals where feasting, celebration, and games were common. It was also thought that during this time the veil -which existed between the worlds of the living and the dead- became thin and thus permitting spiritual crossover to happen between them. A concern that sparked the tradition of carving turnips -and later pumpkins- into jack-o-lanterns as well as mumming and guising to be utilized by the living to serve as protective measures while the dead and otherworldly beings roamed the haunted landscape to terrorize and visit the living.

      A centuries old holiday, Samhain was historically observed throughout Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man with variations of this celebration being recognized in certain areas of what is now referred to as the United Kingdom. Similar festivities could also be found in other parts of Europe during the time. For example, the people of Salerno, Italy held a similar festival honoring the dead until the practice itself was banned by the church in the fifteenth century. Yet, despite the sentimentalities and policies of the church, the festival and the idea of honoring the dead during the waning months of the years continue to influence and be adapted by various cultures and regions of the world centuries later. Halloween, All Saints Day, and the variations of Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) found throughout Mexico as well as in Central and South America are additional testaments to the significance of this time old tradition and its varied practices.


      2018 Samhain Sabbat Box - Witches' Sight Sabbat Box Theme - Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans


      As modern witches we understand Samhain as functioning as one of the Greater Sabbats, being the contemporary collective name for the four primary seasonal festivals observed in Ancient Ireland. During this time of the year, the final harvest symbolizes the final death. The giving of life in anticipation of the cold and harsh winter months ahead. It is also, as the name indicates, a time of endings where we reap what we have sown and reflect upon those events that have brought us to this moment, and those efforts which will carry us through the coming months beyond the distant winter. 


      So, upon this night of Samhain, as the dead return to the land to be among the living, we honor them and their memory through offerings of food and good drink, reverence, stories of who they once were, and tales of where they have been since their passing. We also embark on efforts of engagement with them through direct conversation and other means of contact. Communicating with the dead improves during this time because of the veil being thin. Therefore acts of divination such as scrying into a mirror or the light of a candle, or via ceromancy (interpreting the candle drippings dripped onto water) can be employed to seek answers from the beyond. As our own ancestors come forth, we welcome their return to offer their insights and blessings as we gaze between the worlds as only witches can. Happy Samhain and Blessed Be!

      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.

      • 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 •


        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.

        • WHO MAKES IT?: Created By Sabbat Box
        • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store 
        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: If you have an interest in learning to use a pendulum, or are looking for a new set, this kit provides everything you need to get started!

        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.

        Miriam Jasper, also known as calligraphy stone, Arabic stone, or script stone, is as beautiful as it is unique. 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.

        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 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.

          Charme et Sortilege aka (Charm and Spell)

          • 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. They have been serving the Pagan community for over 13 years. The majority of their products are made in house and are one of a kind.

          • 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. 

          • HAND CARVED SKULL CANDLES  •


          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.
