Imbolc 2019 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Spirit's Replenishment 0

2019 Imbolc Sabbat Box - Spirit's Replenishment - Witch Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

• 2019 IMBOLC • SABBAT BOX THEME • SPIRIT'S REPLENISHMENT •


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.”


Februarius, the Greeks and It's Historical significance 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.

Sabbat Box Imbolc 2019 Theme Release

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.

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.

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

    • Divination Work
    • Assistance with Protection

    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.

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.

      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!

      Mabon Sabbat Box Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Witch Subscription Box

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

      Summer is moving on, and cooler air will soon invite us outside. Autumn is the time the earth brings for shorter days and longer nights, its balance culminating on the equinox--which many Pagans and witches refer to as Mabon. Around this time the harvest moon can be seen, the last of the fruits of the earth are to be gathered and the time of thanksgiving for all the bounty gathered and stored. This year’s Mabon Sabbat Box celebrates the moon and her magickal and mundane influence on our lives.

        • BOX SYNOPSIS •


        2018 Mabon Sabbat Box - Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Wiccan Ritual Supplies Pagan Subscription Box Service

        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:

        • Moon Magick
        • Candle Magick
        • Intention Setting
        • Working with the moon phases
        • Working with and connecting with the divine feminine
        • Using moon spells to help bring forth changes you seek

        In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn exquinox is a time of balance. The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium - aequus meaning equal and nox meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly equal. Enforcing the equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you? Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night, and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year!

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.

          Moon Magick Mabon 2018 Sabbat Box Theme - Sabbat Box a Witch Subscription Box For Pagans

          • 2018 MABON - FALL EQUINOX SABBAT BOX THEME • MOON MAGICK •


          The weather cools, a chill settling in the air. The leaves begin to turn to fiery colors: Yellow. Red. Orange.  The spectrum creates a rainbow over the landscape as they fall to the ground, filling the air with an earthy scent. The autumn equinox is near.


          The equinox itself is a scientifically observable event when the tilt of the earth is so that the sun passes over the earth’s equator.  Because of this, the sun rises exactly east and sets exactly west rather than at a slight tilt towards the poles and we experience a near-equal day and night. This event occurs twice a year: Once at spring and once in the fall. In 2018, the Autumn Equinox will take place on September 22nd at 4:02 PM EDT. 

          Mabon and Moon Magick - Sabbat Box theme release for Mabon 2018 - A Subscription Box For Witches and PagansFor pagans and witches, the fall equinox is also known as Mabon, one of three harvest festivals on the Wheel of the Year. We owe the name "Mabon" itself to Aidan Kelly in the 1970s, a reference to characters, or perhaps gods, from Welsh lore. That being said, though the name is relatively new, the concept of a celebration occurring around the fall equinox is not. Oschophoria was a festival in ancient Greece that honored the grape harvest and wine. Eighteenth century Bavarians celebrated Oktoberfest in the last week of September, a festival that continues today. Even the US holiday Thanksgiving originally occurred on October 3rd, just a week and a half after the equinox. It wasn’t until 1863 that it was moved to November and 1941 before it settled on the date it is today. As such, the modern Autumn Equinox as a pagan festival is one of thanksgiving and gratitude.


          Much of this thanksgiving tradition with Mabon is owed to its timing around the fall harvest. Customs of the holiday include this, creating themes of completion and goal achievement. This is a great time to reflect upon the past to see if you have reaped what you’ve sown from seeds planted in the spring. What goals did you want to achieve at the beginning of the year? Have they come to fruition?  What do you need to do to find completion? This might even mean cutting your losses to move forward, much as a farmer might do with a dud crop.

          In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn equinox is a time of balance.  The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium- aequus meaning equal and nox, of course, meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly-equal. Enforcing this equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you?  Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year.


          Mabon has always had a close association with the moon. The full moon near the fall equinox, the Harvest Moon, is probably the most well-known. This particular full moon derives its name from the farmers working late into the night, the crops illuminated by its brilliant light. The Harvest Moon is sometimes called the Wine Moon as well because it rises in a beautiful orange-red splendor, akin to the fiery colors of the autumn leaves below. Moreover, for those that believe in the goddess, Mabon is when she officially enters her “waning” phase – another emphasis on the connection of this equinox with the moon.

          But this isn’t all. As stated earlier, the equinox isn’t exactly a perfect balance of night and day – it is only nearly equal. That perfect equality, called equilux rather than equinox, occurs a few days before the actual equinox itself. We owe this offset on the day the sun passes over the equator’s plane to atmospheric diffusion and, of course, our beloved moon. Earth’s satellite causes the planet’s orbit to vary from a perfect ellipse. It’s also why we have the tilt, and thus the equinoxes, in the first place. Thus the moon has a profound effect on this sabbat in particular!


          Mabon Altar For A Fall Equinox Ritual - Sabbat Box Mabon 2018 Theme Release - A Subscription Box For Pagans Mabon altar for a Fall Equinox ritualBecause of the fall equinox’s especially close connection to the moon, Sabbat Box would like to announce its Mabon box theme: Moon Magick II. Our first Moon Magick themed Sabbat Box was presented on Ostara of last year.  It seems only appropriate to present the second of this theme on the mirror holiday to the first.  Moon Magick deals with the darkness and the ways we attempt to illuminate it, much like a candle in the night. It is spiritual, cleansing, divinatory and divine. It’s also natural, emphasizing harvested herbs akin to the harvest of the fall.


          This box will assist subscribers on working with not just the Harvest Moon in its full status but every phase during this time – and throughout the year! The items you’ll discover will be educational, interactive and fully integrated with the moon herself, and will include more exclusive items just for our members. We can’t wait for our subscribers to open up this magickal box and begin harnessing the full power of the many phases of the moon this equinox!

            • BOX SYNOPSIS •


            Shamanic Connection Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box - A Subscription Box For 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:

            • Help to aid with meditation
            • Purification
            • Spiritual cleansing and healing
            • Offerings and divination
            • Helps one to incorporate different tools that come directly from the earth into your practice

            For this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box, we wanted to highlight the reliance on the earth by focusing on the original, human-spirit connection method: shamanism. While the most familiar picture of shamanism for many of us refers to the indigenous peoples of North America, shamans have extisted under different titles and names in every part of the globe from the beginning of human history. These early practitioners were the medicine people, the advisors, the knowing members of their group or tribe who were revered and honored highly in those cultures, Shamanism generally refers to practicing higher states of consciousness (sometimes through mind-altering plants and substances called entheogens) as a means of connecting to the Otherworld or Divine. Shamans would enter altered states of consciousness, reaching a state referred to as ecstasy, which in this state would divine messages and help provide guidancefor their people. Dancing, singing, drumming, storytelling, and ritual reenactments of important events were just some of what ancient (and modern) shamans throughout the world have done in their practice. Shamans were also the first spiritual practitioners who incorportated ritual tools and objects from the earth into their practices.

            We at Sabbat Box--who are committed to introducing and providing tools to modern-day practitioners--seek to honor these ancient practitioners with this year’s Lammas Sabbat box theme, Shamanic Connection. We have curated a collection of items that we hope will give deference to shamanic practice and how it has informed our own modern spell craft and ritual practice. At this time of year, with our focus on the gifts of the earthand our place in it, we hope that this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box might bring you a little closer to the earliest roots of Pagan practice and the Earth on which we live.

            Much like the gifts of sustenance the earth provides us during harvest season, the earth alone can lend us all that we need to allow us to further strengthen our bond with it, to further nourish our spirit, and bring us closer the divine.

            The Shaman Wisdom Card/Oracle deck is sure to catch the eye of many of our subscribers as it touts itself as a daily insight and medication deck inspired by Native American wisdom and shamanic practices. While the deck itself is non-specific to any one tradition or Native American tribe, we believe it serves as a launch point for those interested in earth-centered teachings and beliefs.

            Each Shaman Wisdom deck has 65 cards divided into groups of different trees, moons, stones, plants, animals and directions. Cards 1–12 represent the twelve moons, or twelve astrological months of the year. The accompanying booklet gives the dates of the moon period with a short description of the cards’ intent. The next twelve cards depict the 12 animal sisters; animals such as the eagle and the buffalo that are considered spiritual helpers. There are twelve cards that relate to plants, twelve trees, ten sacred stones, and seven great directions. 

            Use it to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of earth based spirituality and expand your knowledge. This deck is produced by US Games Inc, one of the largest publishers of tarot decks, oracle decks and inspirational decks, who is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year! Some of the most popular tarot decks are published by this company and they hold a variety of awards centered around divination.

            Smoke cleansing in some Native American practices is known as smudging, a multi-day ritual that involves fasting and certain preparations each unique to the tribes who practice it. That being said, smoke cleansing is universal to all cultures!  This smoke cleansing set (smudging set) was included to assist our members with just that. 

            The first item of note is a bowl that is made of polished water buffalo horn. Native to Asia and China, the water buffalo horns utilized for this bowl are ethically salvaged. Use the bowl as a means of catching ashes from your herb bundle or as its own offering bowl. 

            Next is a Guinea Fowl feather. Related to the chicken, Guinea Fowls are native to Africa and have a unique reputation for pest control. They’re nature’s natural cleansers! Use the feather to gently direct the smoke of your smudge stick or herb cleansing bundle as another offering on your altar.

            Finally, a set of 3 Lavender, Sage and Cedar smudge sticks complete your set. 
            The combination of sage and cedar promotes protection while hints of lavender encourage relaxation. Burn this bundle to reset your space and tools or even cleanse your self! All of the herbs within this bundle are ethically sourced by a Native American Cooperative via Windrose Trading Company. Overall, this smoke cleansing kit is a wonderful way for you to connect with the earth around you during this earth-centered harvest.

            Shaman Stones/Moqui Balls are commonly used in gendered pairs and are held in each hand to promote grounding, balance, and focus during meditation or Shamanic journeying. They are believed to also help with discovering or further connecting with your spirit guides or animal totems, as well as enhance one's psychic abilities.

            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.
