• 2019 IMBOLC SABBAT BOX • SPIRIT'S REPLENISHMENT • BOX BREAKDOWN •
Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!
The modern spiritual observation of the shift from darkness to light, from old to new, is what Imbolc is all about. Many Pagans use this time to take stock and begin to lay a foundation for the growth and improvement they seek over the coming year. And like the first step in any magickal working, creating a solid magickal foundation starts with purifying, cleansing, ridding and banishing all that needs it -- in order to take the steps to ultimately replenish ourselves and our spirit. By starting the year with a focus on purification and clearing of the old, we lay the groundwork that we need in order to aid us in manifesting the future we desire...in a symbolic, physical, and spiritual manner.

• BOX SYNOPSIS •
All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:
- Purification magick
- Energy clearing
- Ritual/spiritual cleansing
- Consecration and healing work
- Crystal magick
- Help with banishing and protective work before rites
The winter solstice can be a time of darkness, stagnation, and a sort of end-year malaise. When that Times Square ball drops at midnight on the new year, however, our consciousness tends to shift: we think about what we have done over the last year and what we may want out of the next. It is a time for taking stock, adding up the plusses and subtracting the minuses, with a forward-facing position towards what’s to come. This year's box was curated with this in mind, and with the intent to help assist with replenishing one's spirit as we tread closer towards the spring and into the new year.
• TRIPLE MOON ALTAR BELL KIT •
ITEM 1: TRIPLE MOON ALTAR BELL.................$19.95
• WHAT: Triple Moon Altar Bell Kit with Info/Chant Card and Silken Bag
• WHO MAKES IT?: Sourced via Azure Green / Produced by Sabbat Box
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Exclusive at The Sabbat Box Store
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A classic in any witch’s repertoire, this beautiful bell is a treat of sight and sound.
One of the more commonly recognized tools within the craft (and Wicca particularly) is the altar bell. With its ties to purification and clearing one’s space, we thought it would make a perfect addition to this year’s Imbolc Sabbat Box. This gorgeous brass bell is decorated with symbols that represent both feminine and masculine aspects of the divine. It contains triple moons (signifying the Goddess in all her aspects), and fixed atop its handle is a horizontal crescent moon (symbolic of the horns of the God). Many practitioners use bells to signify or mark particular moments within ritual or spellwork, such as the opening and closing of the circle, calling the four quarters, or to chime the moment of exercised intent. This bell can be used for such or as an all-around tool to bring higher vibrational energy within your sacred space to purify and banish negativity. A soft chime of a bell can be used to cleanse an area where you may not want or cannot use smoke or smudge. A harder tolling can represent the high vibration energy necessary for banishment. A bell is also considered to be a correspondence of the element of air, and can mark this element on a Wiccan altar.
• QUARTZ CRYSTAL TOWER SET •
ITEM 2: QUARTZ TOWER SET..........$19.99
• WHAT: Clear Quartz Crystal Tower Set w/info card and bag
• WHO MAKES IT?: Sourced from Eclectic Artisans/Produced by Sabbat Box
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available exclusively at the Sabbat Box Store
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: These stunning clear quartz towers are a great focal point and energetic symbol for your altar or sacred space.
For a box dedicated to purification and spiritual replenishment, we thought it would be a nice idea to include another popular altar fixture to add within our members’ spiritual toolbox: the quartz tower. Clear quartz, unsurprisingly, corresponds to clarity, both in energy and communication. While quartz crystal itself is generally seen as a stone of universal intention (as it is the culmination of all the colors of the rainbow like a prism, which many believe includes all aspects of all other stones), it also brings its specific significance of transparency and purity with its translucent brilliance. In the form of a tower, it stands in for both masculine or phallic energies and is honorarium to the divine (as it points “upward”), as well as a striking illustration of a sword cutting air or division of space. Many crystal workers and practitioners recognize the energy-attracting power of the tower shape as a source of strength, stability, and power. These stunning towers are a perfect addition to any altar or sacred space, and can be used as a focal point for higher energy work and divination.
• SACRED ALTAR WASH •
ITEM 3: ALTAR WASH..........$12.95
• WHAT: Hand Crafted Sacred Altar Wash - Consecration and Cleansing Spray
• WHO MAKES IT?: Earthen Alchemy
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at Earthen Alchemy or the Sabbat Box Store
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This purifying cleansing spray is a great way to prepare your altar for magickal workings or spells.
Spring cleaning goes hand in hand with Imbolc, and what better to include in a purification themed Sabbat Box than an item to help cleanse your sacred space! Earthen Alchemy’s Sacred Altar Wash is a complex blend of herbs and oils that can be used to not only cleanse your altar or space spiritually, but is great to use as a literal cleaner (just be sure to test surface before use). This purifying blend of sweetgrass hydrosol (herbal solution) contains palo santo for energy clearing, white fir, juniper berry, and cypress essential oils for purification and protection, providing a fresh, clear space for your magickal workings.

ITEM 4: RITUAL AND BODY OIL.........$12.95
• WHAT: Hand Crafted Renewal Imbolc Body and Ritual Oil
• WHO MAKES IT?: Spirit Element
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at Spirit Element or The Sabbat Box Store
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A versatile, vegan friendly oil that can be used ritually or mundanely.
Renewal ritual and body oil is specially crafted to hold the peaceful yet hopeful energy of the sabbat, Imbolc. It reminds us that all darkness is followed by light, all sadness evertually turns to joy, and that death provides the pathway for rebirth. It features a multi-note blend of lavender, sandalwood, palo santo, and a touch of fennel to inspire peace, to awaken the mind, and to bring renewal to the spirit. It’s not just for working with the Imbolc season. It is an inspired blend that will invigorate you throughout the year and particularly after traumatic and trying times. Renewal can be used in place of your traditional body moisturizer or massage oil but also makes an excellent addition to ritual candles and tools.

• AURA BALM •
ITEM 5: HANDMADE AURA OINTMENT.................$10.00
• WHAT: Anjou’s White Sage Aura Ointment for Spiritual Protection
• WHO MAKES IT?: Light of Anjou
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at Light of Anjou and the Sabbat Box Store
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This quality crafted and convenient sized balm can be used for ritual anointing for purification.
Our aura is an energy field that surrounds us. It is the first thing that others pick up on when coming into contact with us and it is also very sensitive to surrounding energies, helping to guide our intuition. It is important that our aura be free flowing and protected in order for us to maintain clarity, in both magickal and mundane settings. To help assist with both purifying and protecting our aura, we included this potent Aura Ointment by Light of Anjou in this Imbolc’s Sabbat Box. Use this balm prior to spellwork or ritual as a way to purify the aura and protect it from negativity and ill intent. This anointing balm is versatile enough to be used on the body and can be used on objects you wish to purify and protect.

Located in Monroe, Maine, Light of Anjou is a witchery shop specializing in herbal potions, ritual and therapeutic oils, mystical art, divination, and magickal tools. Anjou draws upon the power of the moon phase and the flux of elements to craft powerful tools to help you in your witching journey.

We opted to include one of 4 of the 12 varieties in each Sabbat Box to aid with purification and cleansing one’s space (sandalwood, jasmine, dragon’s blood, and frankincense). They’re each made using the “masala tradition” which consists of grinding and mixing powdered herbs, resins, and oils together to form a dough, and then are hand rolled onto the bamboo and coated in aromatic wood powder. Which variety speaks to you? Which variety is your favorite? As with all items by Sun's Eye, these incense are of exceptional quality, and will quickly become your favorite incense to use for ritual or meditation.

• TIME •
TIME: We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.
This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!
We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

Boxes ship: 1/25 ~ A new calendar year is quite often a time when we take stock of where we have been and where we are going. After the traditional “holiday season” has passed, everyone is back to “business.”
The winter solstice can be a time of darkness, stagnation, and a sort of end-year malaise. When that Times Square ball drops at midnight on the new year, however, our consciousness tends to shift: we think about what we have done over the last year and what we may want out of the next. It is a time for taking stock, adding up the plusses and subtracting the minuses, with a front-facing position towards what is to come.
This sudden adjustment in thought at this time of year can mean that we strive for changes to our thoughts or actions in the areas of our lives that may need strengthening, improving, and replenishing. We think about gym memberships, dietary changes, work plans, relationship goals. We think about how we want to move forward on our spiritual path…what skills we want to learn, what goals we want to achieve, what obstructions we want to conquer. We think to cleanse ourselves of negativity and failure and mistakes while facing the new year with hope and optimism.
This is not a new philosophy or phenomenon surrounding this time. The calendar year and the Wheel of the Year share these ideas, and throughout history we have different groups and cultures that would look to clear out the old and ring in the new. In our earliest societies as humans, there was the hopeful belief in the return of new life and new growth, focusing on what needed to be done to have a bountiful spring planting season. The Romans later on celebrated Februa, where we get the word for the month of February. This was a festival on the 15th of the named month where purification and cleansing were celebrated and observed. The Celts, also turned their minds to clearing out the negative and what was used up and focused on improving their lives during this time of year as well. A number of early spring traditions were created at that time, including the concept of “spring cleaning” and the mundane preparations for fertility and growth translated into the spiritual clearing and purification necessary for success and a prosperous season ahead. As modern pagans, we have continued to carry forward many of these seasonal traditions, most specifically the Gaelic traditions, and call this time Imbolc, the first of the eight sabbats in our modern calendar year.
The modern spiritual observation of this shift from darkness to light, from old to new, is what Imbolc is all about. Many Pagans use this time to take stock and begin to lay a foundation to the growth and improvement they seek, and like the first step in any magickal working, creating a solid magickal foundation starts with purifying, cleansing, ridding and banishing all that needs it, in order to take the steps to ultimately replenish ourselves and our spirit.
In this spirit—and at this time in the Wheel of the Year—Sabbat Box has curated a collection of items that can help everyone prepare themselves (and their craft) for the return of spring and the time of preparation we celebrate with this Sabbat. What parts of your life, spiritual and mundane, are you looking grow from? Do you have or know of anything that needs clearing our purifying in your physical and spiritual space? What about yourself? Could you use some spiritual clarity and replenishment? By starting the year with a focus on purification and clearing of the old, we are able to lay the foundation and groundwork that we need in order to aid us in manifesting the future we desire, in a symbolic, physical and spiritual manner.
